‘This is the End’ is a hugely melodic slice of tech-metal, balancing the unbridled power and haunting melodies that have firmly established Derange as one of the hottest young bands in the UK tech-metal scene.
Produced by Russ Russell (Dimmu Borgir, Napalm Death, Sikth, Amorphis, Evileetc…) ‘The Awakening’ is a glorious tech-metal affair, referencing forward thinking bands like Karnivool, TesseracT and Periphery, all topped off by the haunting and powerful vocals of Cat Pereira. Described by Russell; ‘one of the best vocalists I've ever come across’, Pereira is a formidable talent, bringing equal parts aggression and melody to Derange’s complex and powerful music.
With the singles ‘Ego’ and ‘Unleash’ making their mark soon after the band’s inception, Derange would take their time to produce their acclaimed ‘Change’ EP (featuring the single/video ‘Pretty Ones’) and once released it brought the band to a much wider audience.
Since then the band have been hard at work bringing ‘The Awakening’ to fruition, spending long hours under the expert tutelage of Russ Russell, honing their songs into their final form.
