Progressive/Brutal Death Metal luminaries DEFEATED SANITY return July 24 with The Sanguinary Impetus on Willowtip Records. Album cut “Propelled into Sacrilege” is streaming at:

The Sanguinary Impetus is perhaps the ultimate expression of DEFEATED SANITY’s signature blend of the brutal with the technical, performed in a manner largely unparalleled in the world of extreme metal. At once comfortably recognizable and awe-inspiring, the forthcoming album is sure to be a lock for many year-end lists. Sickening riff crunch, hammering beats, and technical wizardry combine to create a level of sonic violence that won’t soon be forgotten.


The band released the following statement concerning the forthcoming album:


“With The Sanguinary Impetus we have created our most complex album to date. We had strayed pretty far from our style musically with and felt a strong urge to pick up where we left off with and expand on the trademark DS sound.”
