Depressed Mode released a new single and music video “Eternal Darkness”

Finnish symphonic doom/death metal band Depressed Mode released a new single and music video “Eternal Darkness” which features Veronica Bordacchini from Fleshgod Apocalypse. The track is taken from their upcoming third studio album “Decade of Silence” which is set to be released on May 6th 2022 via Inverse Records.

Vocalist Otto Salonen comment:

“I forgot Eternal Darkness in a desk drawer so to speak for 15 years. As I was composing for the new album I went through some old songs and this one popped up. The guys wanted instantly to work with it, so I finished the song and the rest is history. The lyrics bypass indirectly the state of the world, but it’s truly a story about darkness.”

Depressed Mode was established in 2005 by composer Otto Salonen. Signed a contract with Firebox Records for two albums in 2006. First album “Ghosts Of Devotion” was released in 2007, and received really good reviews throughout the media. The second album “..For Death” released in 2009, was a success, and a step towards more symphonic death/doom metal, with great reviews as well.

Otto Salonen begun composing DM’s third album in January 2020. The lineup for the new album consists of Otto Salonen, Teemu Heinola, Henri Hakala and Iiro Aittokoski. Veronica Bordacchini from Fleshgod Apocalypse took over the female vocals for the third album.
