Dachsbach, Bavaria (1994 – present)

Defeated Sanity was formed in 1994 in Dachsbach, Bavaria as a project of Wolfgang Teske (guitar) and Lille Gruber (drums) with the intention to play the most brutal and intense possible. The band started playing shows in 1996 with the help of session musicians Jonas Gruber (bass) and Robert Colnik (vocals). With this line-up the band also recorded the two demos “Devoured by the Black” (1996) and “Withdrawn From Beauty” (1998).

The next step was to find musicians able to play the very complicated songs, and they ended up being Tino Köhler (bass) and Christian Münzner (guitar). In 2001, Czech label GRODHAISN PRODUCTIONS released a split CD with Defeated Sanity (with Marcus Keller doing vocals) and Poppy Seed Grinder. Also recorded in 2001 was the “Collapsing Human Failures” contribution to the Split 7” EP with Imperious Malevolence, which would be the last recording featuring guitarist Christian Münzner (who then became part of Necrophagist).

In late 2004, the band released their debut full length album, “Prelude to the Tragedy” on UK label Grindethic Records.

Defeated Sanity underwent further line-up changes with Jens Staschel joining on vocals, Christian Kühn on guitar, and Jacob Schmidt on bass. In August 2006, the band entered Soundlodge Studios and recorded their second album, “Psalms Of The Moribund” which was released in early 2007 on Grindethic Records.

    They are fun to blast out of your car. I highly recommend blasting Chapters of Repugnance. Especially the song Coerced Into Idolatry.

    They're definitely one of the most unique and interesting brutal death metal bands out there.

    Malignancy, Guttural Secrete, Yattering, Mindly Rotten, Visceral Bleeding, Gutted (from Hungary) are some bands I can think of that go balls-to-the-wall on technicality, brutality and speed like Defeated Sanity. Also Gigan for an equally schizo, but more spacey and psychadelic take. None really sound quite like Defeated Sanity though.

    Yeah, aside from Dying Fetus, I think they're my favorite Slam band, closely followed by Devourment.
