57 years old... I didn't know there are death metal musicians who are such old. He must have been born in 1953.. He is far older than all of thrash metal musicians I know... I find it weird that someone starts making death metal at the age of 40!
Was he into anything before death metal?

Don't know if he had a previous band, but the Defeated Sanity were founded in 1994 by Wolfgang Teske and his son Lille Gruber, so this was a father/son project, and obviously the father had to be going into the forties.
Probably this is the unique case of a father/son band in Metal, and that it worked for so long tells us good things about their relationship. It's not hard to imagine a father and a son this close discovering new sounds toghether and ending up on Death Metal.
Hail to them!

(Yeah, I know, I'm rather nostalgic today, full of mellow stories in my head.)

GADDAMNIT people need to stop dying. R.I.P.

I haven't familiarized myself with this band (I've heard one song, and I didn't know it was a father/son project). However, it is pretty sad about this man dying. RIP.

Here are bits of his last recordings in his other band, Neue Aera. He really was an outstanding musician - here he does drums in an improvised jazz band. The song, Hillbillix, is pretty cool.

Not that I had heard about that guy or anything but... RIP!
