“Struck By A Murderous Siege” – DERANGED‘s first studio album in five years and ninth altogether – was recorded at Berno Studio (Amon Amarth, The Crown, Witchery) in Malmö, Sweden, and was followed by a special compilation release, “Postmortem Rituals”, featuring a collection of rare demo tapes and 7″ singles (allremastered from original DAT tapes). The album’s cover artwork was created by Mike Hrubovcak (Grave, Six Feet Under, Sinister).
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. DERANGED is led by drummer Rikard Wermén, the band’s mastermind and sole remaining member from the original 1991 line-up.
