Sweden's Deranged have been active since the '90s. I purchased a double CD release of Rated-X, which came with a mini CD titled Sculpture of the Dead. This release from the now defunct Spanish label Repulse Records was an eye opener for me. Deranged are a Swedish band which went for a more American style sounding death metal and not the Swedish death metal sound which became associated with acts from there such as early Entombed and Dismember. The sheer sonic ferocity and thunderous production with perfectly gurgled vocals gave Deranged their trademark sound. Rated-X was, and still is, one of my favorite brutal death metal releases ever.

With numerous line-up changes and sound changes over the course of 9 albums, the band has switched things up a number of times but drummer and founder Rikard Wermén remains. Wermén always delivers a machine gun drumming signature style which mixes things up nicely. No doubt its been hard for Deranged to keep registering that trademark sound but they always come through and release a solid album. They are one of the death metal bands I look forward to getting new material from. When I heard Agonia Records in Poland were handling their new CD Struck By A Murderous Siege I had to contact them.

The release will feature many different options including a very cool second CD with re-mastered songs from many early demos and Deranged releases such as Confessions of a Necrophile, The Confession Continues and Upon the Medical Slab. Struck By A Murderous Siege is 8 tracks of technical and brutal death metal by the band who know how to do it best. The second track on the disc was previously released on a Mini CD from Sevared Records, titled Morgue Orgy. That aforementioned song is Hello From The Gutters which takes quotes from serial killer David Berkowitz. I almost prefer the Morgue Orgy mini CD version of this song, because it has a heavier and rawer sound than the version on this new release. Hello From The Gutters is a mid paced chugging song and it goes to show that not every death metal track needs to be played at a break neck pace. There are a couple mid tempo songs on here, as well as some sped up ones, with some wonderful breakdowns and tempo changes.

The stand outs for me on the album are the opener titled The Frail Illusion Of Osterology, Cold Icy Hands, the title track and Toy Box Torture Chamber. Struck By A Murderous Siege is probably not my favorite Deranged release recently as Cut, Carve, Rip, Serve was a wonderful and a brutal sounding throwback to the '90s area of that New York style death metal (Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation) but only done way better.

This release will please fans, and especially the two disc set which will include the early re-mastered demos on a second disc titled Postmortem Rituals. Agonia are going all out with this release including vinyl and a whole range of merchandise so contact the label at for more info. At the least you can digitally download the album on Band Camp for like $6, so it's a no brainier to support these guys who have been in the business paying dues, kicking ass and taking names for over 20 years and still doing it. Support real and pure brutal death metal.
