You have one more reason to listen these dangerous guys and After reading
this interwiev, you'll see that I'm right
First of all I wanna congratulate you on your new album and start my interview
expressing that you started terrorize on the market with your extremely
Lille: Thank you! We went through a lot to make this album as brutal as it
can be. So I appreciate your comment very much!
What kind of developments are occurring at side of Defeated Sanity and what
are you doing recently ? What would you like to tell about your new album? How
are the sales going on and what were the reactions of metalheads to the new
So far everyone is loving it. As far as I know we already sold 1500 copies.
Right now we are going through a bit of a weird line up as I bet you have heard.
So we are looking how this will develop further. We got some tour offers in for
next years and just came back from playing Deathfeast and Bangkok. So we have
been pretty busy recently.
Before you used to release your albums from Grindethic Records but you
released your new album with the label of Willowtip Records.What caused this
We kinda wanted to try something new and see if another label could help us
to get our status up more. We still have to see how that goes but so far
Willowtip did an amazing job at everything. Grindethic always did a good job for
us as well btw...
Although you’re a 15 year old band, the active years of you equal after 2000.
So what did you do past 6 years? Why didn’t you appear ?
In the year 2000 I was 17 haha, so before that I didn't consider myself
ready for the stage, although we did play a few shows already when I was
14/15/16....just very rarely
got acquainted with you around 2006-2007. Firstly, I got your full-lenght album
Prelude to the Tragedy. I said what that is and listened to it by chance and
then I became a fan of your music. Can you tell about that album and its release
process ? What kind of circumstances appeared during this album? What is the
importance of this album for you as it’s your first long full-lenght album?
An very important album for us. Cus it was the first time when people
actually noticed us as a strong act internationally. We recorded this album with
a kinda crumbling line up that we didn't know was gonna last for long and in the
end it didn't, but still we were a good unity and I think you can hear it.
Nihilistic interactions on the words that are full of violence and death…
Your lyrics are so lurid and reflect a different imagination world for your
audience. At least, that’s what for me… Can you tell us in what kind of process
lyrics writing and composition develop?
Well I can say the lyrics are born from our fascination with cruelty,
suffering, death, dark feelings. The music is just a way to express that and the
lyrics go along with it. The music is written before the lyrics are then the
lyrcis get woven around the music, to achieve the best possible dramaturgy for
In one of your interviews you said that Blues and rock music was developed in
the U.S., that means it all goes back to this country. The roots are there and I
think the best musicians will always be there." When asked about the difference
in terms of sound and direction between "Psalms of the Moribund" and "Prelude to
the Tragedy’’ and continued ‘’ We got our own style on "Psalms to the Moribund"
where "Prelude to the Tragedy" had very obvious hints of the bands we idolized.
Psalms of the Moribund splits in two extremes, it went more chunky, brutal,
thick and deep, but at the same time that math-approach and the technicality
went up a lot!’’. These opinions really aroused my interest because superiority
of American bands stand in the forefront but for me European bands do it as good
as Americans. What do you think about it? What are your opinions about European
Hmm I still think what I said there is right. But European bands in deed
have become closer to what they are doing over there. Listen to the new
Putridity if you wanna have your brains blown out!!!
While I was listenning to your first full lenght album Prelude to the tragedy
I liked you in several aspects. Compositions, lyrics, and tones etc… But, in
following albums we see that your technique has changed in addition to the
musical structure. If we wanted you to make a comparision between your albums,
what could you say about it? Especially, if we reckon in the point that your
last album has come, your performans in every new album will go on increasingly.
Hmmm I can just hear exactly what techniques (may it be songrwriting related
or playingwise) I needed to fix when I listen to the older albums. For the new
one I guess its a bit too early to try to analyze...but we do know what we need
to make better next time. I really believe we made a huge step forwards with
Actually there is a difference in terms of record between Prelude to the
tragedy and Psalms of the Moribund. Do you think the distinction between these
albums can depend on that ? And in ‘’Psalms of the Moribund’’ album, vocalist
Robbe Kok whom we know from Disavowed, has personally involved. Did he have an
effect on the change of the musical structure?
Robbe did only the mastering part, the musical structure and even the mix
stayed the same. Not sure if I understand your question, but Prelude and Psalms
were very different. That was because Prelude was a collection of demo songs
plus 2 newer songs all re-recorded. It showed an evolution in songwriting.
Psalms had more songs out of one period which you can hear clearly. Also if you
compare the last song we wrote for Prelude (Liquifying cerebral hemispheres) and
the first we wrote for Psalms (Hideously disembodied)....you can see its not
Let’s talk about your new album…It’s an album that warms up the audience
slowly,has an entry like testing and later is full of fatal attacks. We are
faced with an album that puts the audience in several emotional states and
excoriates them with its deep variable structure.And in the critics that I’ve
read, I see that audience is more satisfied with this album than others. What
kind of changes are there in this album apart from other albums?
Well most albums these days wanna trick you into buying them cus there is
one good song with some great slams etc..."Chapters..." is a well balanced and
thought out album that has all killers, no fillers. It does go through some kind
of atmospheric evolution and I am pretty happy about the fact of you realizing
Now, Let’s talk about concerts and tours. How is your communication during
your live performances? For example, you played in Thailand last. How were the
reactions an interest to the concert?
Thailand fans were sick as hell. And although we had to play as a threepiece
again due to unfortunate events they were going crazy to our music. We sold all
the merch we brought as well, so I can say that show was the biggest success in
our history yet.
Do you have any plans about new gigs or tours for the following season ,especially
for summer time? If you have, where will you play and with who?
There are huge things in the works. A lot of stuff is still unconfirmed but
if it will happen it will be some of the sickest tour packages at this time. We
also have some German shows coming up soon.
Your album has just been released, but I’ll ask.What are your plans for near
future?What kind of differences should we expect from you especially about
We are in the middle of composing 4 new songs, so the insanity will continue!
What we have written so far seems very slammy/midtempo but we will look to it
that we will balance this album out as much as we did our last. I just know for
a fact that the first track we have done will be a midtempo only track which may
sound boring now but is far from that when you will actually hear it!
Allright! My questions are over. Do you want to add anything?
Thank you for the interview! Stay Brutal and come to the fucking shows
Thank you for this enjoyable conversation and I hope to see your live
performance on the stage as soon as possible.
