Depressed Mode

Depressed Mode made the transition from "joke band" to "serious musical project" with alarming alacrity, but then they're not exactly new to the scene , boasting members of Shape of Despair and Tyrant among their ranks.

As I stated in my review of their debut album, they've mastered the artful balance of mid-paced and snail-paced, using female vocals, keys, piano and strings as the dark threads used to weave this somber tapestry of death and doom.

It's crushing and beautiful, just the way I like my metal.
