NEWS: Depressed Mode have words of Death!
After the success of their May released album “Decade Of Silence“, Finnish Symphonic Doom Death Metal band Depressed Mode have announced that 2023 will see the release of a new EP titled “Words Of Death” via Inverse Records. The first single from the burnt offering will not be new to long time fans as the band have chosen to re-record “Suffer in Darkness” from their 2007 album “Ghost of Devotion” with a guest vocal appearance from Gogo Melone (Aeonian Sorrow, Clouds). Pre-orders may not yet be available but the single can be found over at bandcamp.
Otto Salonen (vocals and orchestrations) comments: “Suffer in Darkness was one of the first ever tracks for Depressed Mode. It was something that created the sound for the band, and I’ve been trying to recreate the atmosphere ever since. That’s one of the reasons we’ve decided to re-record this song, and because I always felt like the song ain’t complete with its orchestrations. Now I had the time and tools to create the atmosphere once again, and it’s now enhanced. We once again hired our former drummer Marko Tommila to create drums for the whole EP, and this was the first song re-recorded.”
