DERANGED - "PLACE OF TORMENT" 12" EP (1989)
After the first wave of extreme metal in Victoria, BC, Deranged unexpectedly emerged and literally cleared the playing field. Taking their influences directly from the tape trading underground, their openness towards new and extreme sub-genres led to a potent hybrid of death/thrash metal. Their second demo “Place Of Torment” heralded massive progression and rave reviews; it is that which we focus on. All four songs were transferred from original 16 track analogue masters at the legendary Fiasco Bros studio, remixed by critically acclaimed engineer Kurt Ballou at GodCity, mastered by Audu Obaje at WE2, and finally cut at 45 rpm for highest fidelity. This flawless masterpiece stands tall next to any worldwide contemporary and would have been huge had they received a record deal in the 80s. Includes a generous 12 page booklet with interview, flyers, art, photographs & lyrics. Ferocious Canadian death / thrash metal. 500 copies. SE34
