Cult Swedish death metallers DERANGED have revealed the first song from their upcoming new album, “Struck By A Murderous Siege”, due out on October 28th via Agonia Records. Listen to the track “Reverent Decomposition” at:
The band’s first studio album in five years (and their ninth altogether) was recorded at Berno Studio (Amon Amarth, The Crown, Witchery) in Malmö, Sweden. The album’s cover artwork was created by Mike Hrubovcak (Grave, Six Feet Under, Sinister).
Guitar player & main songwriter, Thomas Ahlgren, commented on the album:
“The new Deranged album, titled “Struck by a murderous siege” is a blend of classical Deranged brutality with a bit of new elements that will fit perfectly both old and new Deranged fans. You can be sure about that! The album, consisting of five fast, grinding and shredding songs and three heavy mid-tempo tunes, will give the listener the most interesting and varied Deranged album so far. Prepare to hear the echoes of serial killers and brutality!”
The successor to “Cut Carve Rip Serve” from 2011 will feature 8 new tracks with a playing time of roughly 40 minutes.
On October 28th, they will also release a special compilation album,“Postmortem Rituals”, that will feature a collection of rare demo tapes and 7″ singles, all newly remastered from original DAT tapes.

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 sparetime. 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. The band is led by drummer Rikard Wermén, the band’s mastermind and sole remaining member from the original 1991 line-up.
