Jonathan - What makes a good Death metal band?
Lille - Brutality, sickness, skill.
Jonathan - What's your opinion of the DIY movement?
Lille - It's exhausting and it would be best if we wouldn't have to deal with anything but the music ourselves.
Jonathan - I really believe the only passionate way to do music is with your heart.
But sometimes hard times and trouble can get in the way. Why is it so important for you to be in a band and do you have any funny stories to tell?
Lille - Yeah your right. We don't have a whole lot of funny stories. We are a quite normal band. We do it for the music!
Jonathan - What's the origin of the band name, Defeated Sanity?
Lille - We were inspired by a song by japanese band Defiled.
Jonathan - Have you changed the band's name before?
Lille - Nope.
Jonathan - Who are your major influences? Or do you just write what you like and that is the result?
Lille - Brutal Death Metal pioneers (new- and oldschool), classical composers and Jazz/Progrock musicians have always inspired us most.
Jonathan - How long have you all known each other?
Lille - We have all known each other for about 10 years.

Jonathan - How did you meet?
Lille - Through the underground scene.
Jonathan - When did you form your band?
Lille - About 1999 it started to get real serious.
Jonathan - Im sure some countries or crowds are more enthusiastic than others, do you have any particular anecdotes to tell us? Any funny moments?
Lille - Some of my favourite shows were in NYC, Bangkok and France. All of these crowds really supported us a lot while we were playing, which is great for a concert's vibe.
Jonathan - Which songs do you perform most frequently?
Lille - We try to perform a few of every album.
Jonathan - Do you ever play any covers?
Lille - Only covers we ever played were Autopsy "in the grip of winter" and Cannibal Corpse "butchered at birth" and we rarely play them live.
Jonathan - Who writes your songs?
Lille - Mostly me, cooperating with the other members.
Jonathan - What are the main themes or topics for most of your songs?
Lille - They are all based around death, as we are a death metal band.
Jonathan - Do you think these topics will change over time?
Lille - Yeah, they did change slightly.
Jonathan - Could you briefly describe the music-making process?
Lille - Get the new cd, there will be a DvD included and that will have a video of us breaking down the song "lusting for transcendence" for our fans. Its worth watching.

Jonathan - What are your rehearsals generally like? Do you have a set time each week in which you practice or are rehearsals more spontaneous?
Lille - Jacob and me practise every week with only bass and drums. Then once a month we can come together all of us to practise as a full band.
Jonathan - How has your music evolved since you first began playing music together?
Lille - Yeah, we have become tighter as a band. The style has changed slightly.
Jonathan - What has been your biggest challenge as a band? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?
Lille - We have overcome lots of challenges already. Too many to name them.
Jonathan - What advice do you have for people who want to form their own bands?
Lille - Release music only then when u know u love it and other people will be able to enjoy it too.
Jonathan - For those who don’t know you, How can fans-to-be gain access to your music? Do you have a website with sample songs or a demo CD?
Lille - Google Defeated Sanity.
Jonathan - And the last question is all yours, you decide what to say here!
Lille - Actually the last words that u wrote are what I would have written so here it goes:
