Connected thematically although not a concept releases per se, ‘Senses’ part 1 and 2 are an impressive collection of new tracks from the band.
Led by the dynamic vocals of Portuguese singer Cat Pereira, Derange embody everything that is vital and vibrant in modern metal. Pereira’s range is spectacular, (leading to renowned producer Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Raging Speedhorn, Dimmu Borgir etc.) to describe her as ‘one of the best vocalists’ he’d come across), and she’s expertly backed by a collection of fantastic musicians.
Derange blend unforgettable hooks with complex progressive passages, aggressive riffs with powerful vocals, across a fierce collection of finely-honed tracks.
Features the radio hit ‘The Hunted’, the intriguing ‘Falling Awake’ and the anthemic ‘We Are’, all perfect examples of Derange’s forward-thinking approach.
