DERANGED - "LACERATIONS" (1988-89)
Ferocious Canadian Deathrash! Deranged’s openness towards new and extreme subgenres led them to a potent hybrid of deathrash metal. Lacerations collects both studio demos: their 1988 debut and their follow-up from 1989, which heralded massive progression and rave reviews. Torment from ’89 is remixed by Kurt Ballou and all 9 songs are remastered by Audu Obaje. Deluxe package features cover art by Wes Gauley and large-format 8-page booklet with interview, flyers, art, photographs and lyrics. Plus a cool sticker! 500 copies.
