Drummer Rikard Wermén of the reactivated Swedish death metallers DERANGED has issued the following update:
“Yes, the rumor is true… We have started to work on a new full-length! We’re planning to record it sometime in January next year. No titles whatsoever yet… Either song titles or name of the actual album. It’ll come… We’ve got six new tracks so far. The plan right now is to have 10 songs on the new disc. We’ll soon record some kind of demo of the new songs… We always do that, record a rough demo whenever we have a bunch of new songs. Just to have something when we’re working on lyrics and vocal patters. Unless you’ve been living a cave and never ever read an interview with a band that will soon have or have most recently released a new disc, you haven’t heard the following before… Anyway, it’s been said a million of times before but… Most of the times it’s fucking wannabee and rock-star bullshit but this time around it’s true though… The new material is indeed some of the best musical work I have ever been part of and I can’t wait to have it all properly recorded and nicely commercially packed. It’s fucking DERANGED we’re talking about and we have not gone soft and all commercially sloppy. Why should we? Haven’t done so yet and can’t see any sense in doing it now either… DERANGED have never been about faking shit… The new shit (!) is extremely fast, mean and brutal as a New Year’s Day hangover. If you have been into what we’ve done under the name DERANGED earlier you’ll fucking get a hard-on and shit your pants… Further on, we’ll do a bunch of gigs the autumn…”
DERANGED have confirmed six shows in the U.K. in November. Additonal dates on the continent will be added shortly.
