“Echo” is arguably the hardest hitting track from The Awakening but still shot-through with melody. It is a glorious burst of tech-metal, showcasing not only the band’s intricate musicianship but also singer Cat Pereira’s incredible vocal range. The band recently filmed a video for “Echo” which will be released the same day.
Check out the band’s previous video “The Thinker” below.
Formed in London in 2012, Derange have been slowly building up to the release of their incredible debut album The Awakening.
Produced by the legendary Russ Russell (Dimmu Borgir, Napalm Death, Sikth, Amorphis, Evile etc…) 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”)but once release it would bring the band to a much wider audience, garnering national press in the likes of Front magazine along the way.
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.
The Awakening is out now!
