Swedish brutal death metal act Deranged released a clip featuring a rough mix of the new song "Hello From the Gutters." The song will be featured on the upcoming new album "Struck By a Murderous Siege," which is due out on October 28th via Agonia Records.
While full album details will be revealed over the next weeks, drummer & founder Rikard Wermen issued the following update on Deranged's current proceedings:
"We´re right now caught in good ol' Berno Studio located in our hometown Malmö, working on the new full length (titled "Struck by a murderous siege") and things are going rather smooth. Mean, we record the way we've done the last 20+ years. We go in and just fucking play. That's it! Not trying to overproduce anything. We want our shit to sound alive and (in)human. Eight songs of adrenalin and filth soaked death metal straight from the sewers of a cruel and malicious world.
To sum the whole thing up...
Rikard Wermén (drums): Who are you?
Berno Paulsson (producer): I am Berno.
Rikard Wermén: Have you come for me?
Berno Paulsson: I have long walked by your side.
Rikard Wermén: So I have noticed.
Berno Paulsson: Are you ready?
Rikard Wermén: My body is ready, but I am not."

Cult Swedish death metal band Deranged has inked a deal with Agonia Records, with plans to record a new album this summer. The successor to "Cut Carve Rip Serve" from 2011 is expected to be released in the coming winter. Agonia comments:
"Deranged was formed in 1991 by a couple of bored teens in the southern parts of Sweden, that basically wanted to do something in their spare time. Inspired by the bloodiest and most violent bands of the period, like early Carcass, Napalm Death, Impetigo, Suffocation, and even bloodier horror movies, they started to grind.
"The early fascination proved to be a particularly long-lasting and fruitful one, with a short break between 2007 and 2009. Deranged is led by drummer Rikard Wermén, who's the band's mastermind and sole remaining member from the original 1991 line-up. With more than twenty years in the buiseness and eighth full-length albums under the belt, Deranged remains as one of the cult-status Swedish death metal acts around." More...

Vocalist Martin Schönherr of Swedish death metallers DERANGED has issued the following update:
"Sad news… A couple of weeks ago Rikard Wermén [drums] decided to leave the band. He’s been handling all of the band's correspondence (as well as any other matters concerning the band) the last 15 years and told us that he basically was fed up and didn't want to do that any longer and therefore decided to leave the band. He's been doing a really great work and has always managed to squeeze in time to handle the band's business. He also said numerous times that he will stay and do whatever shows that was booked but wouldn't handle any correspondence and the likes, and even said if we managed to get a tour later this year, he would stay for that as well in case we hadn't managed to get a new drummer. Fair enough, and we thank him eternally for that… Now, Johan Axelsson [guitar] said that he didn't want to do the booked shows and wanted to split the band up ('coz of reasons unknown) which leaves me and Tomas Ahlgren [bass] no other choice then hereby say that we can't play the [previously announced European festivals plus the Maryland Deathfest in the U.S.]. Therefore DERANGED are from now on split up." More...
