(We present Vonlughlio’s review of the new sixth album by German stalwarts Defeated Sanity, which is set for release by Willowtip Records on July 24th and features cover art by Jon Zig.)
Today’s review concerns a band who have been dear to me as a fan for more than 10 years. Their music has given me great joy, through good and bad times. They are one of the best Brutal Death Metal acts out there, with classic releases that will be forever remembered.
I am talking about Germany’s Defeated Sanity, originally formed by Lille Gruber (drums) and his late father Wolfgang Teske (R.I.P.). After their inception, the project released a series of demos and splits from 1996 through 2003, and their debut album Prelude to the Tragedy (2004) became one of my favorite debuts ever by any band in the genre.
