!!!ALBUM NEWS!!!

Hey everyone! It may seem we were a little less active this year but now we're back with some great news!

The writing process of our fifth album is to be completed very soon. Actually all music is written at this point and we have already made plans and decisions which we want to let you know today:

First comes the most important. We consider ourselves a progressive Brutal Death Metal band and that means we can't do the same thing over and over again. We love to play the nastiest brutalest Death Metal as much as we love to be musically challenged and advance into new territory. Normally we combine these two things into one sound which is what we became known for. Now for our next album we changed this concept and instead of mixing all ingriedients together into one progressive brutal stew, we will go in two seperate ways.
Which means...

YES, we will record a SPLIT album with ourselves!!
One side will be the most brutal, more simple, more caveman Brutal Death that we ever made - but don't worry it will NOT be boring!!

The other side will be everything else. Technical, oldschool, progressive - just like we love to hear it from our old Prog Thrash&Death heros but of course we do it in our own way!

The album will again be released by Willowtip Records. Our cooperation has been extended by a new two-album contract. They have been reliable and professional and we couldn't be happier with what they offered us.

We will record the album in two parts. We have scheduled the first recording session at the end of the year.
It is too early to give a release date yet but we are looking at summer 2015.

Share this around and get excited. We can't wait to nail this beast down, it's going to be a perfect fifth album for us!!!



Normally I wouldn't share this since I can't stand the majority of Brutal Death Metal, but Defeated Sanity is great and Passages Into Deformity had some dark, brooding moments that I loved. I don't really like their mindless blast beats so honestly I'm only looking forward to the second half of this. That old school, progressive side sounds delicious.

This will count as a new record and not a split, I hope :-P

This sounds pretty cool. Wasn't too big on "Passages..", but I probably just need to listen to it more. Looking forward to this!

Interesting idea. I'll give it a try once it comes out. I expect these two different sides of Defeated Sanity to work best when combined, but it might be interesting.

I'm pumped for this. Defeated Sanity is just about the only brutal death metal band that still keeps me entertained. Now they're distilling down their music into some primitive knuckledragger jams? Shit that's all I ever wanted from this band in the first place. I like their progressive and technical elements as well, but I'm definitely more excited for the former.

This is a pretty brilliant move and idea. They could've stopped making new albums and I'd be fine with it because all their albums are still highly enjoyable on repeated listens. Now I'm curious to hear their brand of death metal distilled into two separate styles.

If anyone's curious what a mostly technical/prog album from DS sounds like, check out the debut album. It's basically early Gorguts worship.

Intriguing format. Rather than trying to morph varying directions into the standard format (a full-length) they have deliberately separated them. The format makes the intent clear, and it seems they are artistically separating the endeavors, which should help them focus the music better. I'm not a fan of the band but the format interests me.

This is going to be epic. Defeated Sanity is otherworldly and I jam 'Passages' regularly and often, not to be redundant. ;)

If they could just add a little personality to their music (like Extremely Rotten), that would be interesting. Their music just has so little character.

Amazing! Love the band, they have yet to disappoint me. The (ahem) "split" sounds like a pretty cool idea, can't wait to hear it!

I think that's called a 'compilation.'

Since it's going to feature newly-written original material, I think it's 'not'.

Compilations can feature new material that just wasnt intended for an EP or album. Regardless, its not a compilation and its not a split. It's just them trying to spin an album divided rather clumsily down the middle as something other than what it is.

I totally understand what you mean. However I disagree. I think this is part of what makes Defeated Sanity's sound so dark and punishing. No remorse. I can't wait for some new material. They literally get better and better with every release.

:scratch: If an album has only new material that was recorded and written for that particular release, why would it be a compilation?

Of course it's not a split, but obviously the band feels that it will seem split-esque because it comprises two halves of different kinds of material, so the band jokingly calls it a split album with themselves. It doesn't make any sense to say it's like a compilation in that sense, and to me it seems pretty odd to call them out for erroneously dubbing it a split album, when clearly they don't intend it in the strict sense of the word. A simple descriptor to illustrate the nature of the album, nothing else.

I like the idea they have for this new release. It sorta reminds me of when bands would sometimes name each side of the record. Like Bathory with "Side Darkness/Side Evil."

I don't know what Defeated Sanity would label this one though. "Side Caveman / Side 21st Century Progressive, Technical, but also Old-School, and still Brutal, but not, you know... Brootal"
