"Struck By A Murderous Siege" is the band's first studio album in five years, and their ninth altogether. Recorded at Berno Studio (Amon Amarth, The Crown, Witchery) in their hometown Malmö. The album's cover artwork is a visiual depiction of its title, 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.
