DEPRESSED MODE
GHOSTS OF DEVOTION
FIREBOX

Finnish doom metal troupe Depressed Mode surely took their name from the style of music they play, as this sextet's grave tempos and ominous instrumentation truly radiate waves of solace. On GHOSTS OF DEVOTION, a distinct resemblance to My Dying Bride thanks to the ethereal female vocal prevail across the nine-track affair, as well as shades of Opeth on cuts like the epic "Cold" and the lurking "Suffer in Darkness". Mixing bleakness and beauty with a penchant for all things gloom, this clandestine clan brings the mood down to a grinding halt with guttural male growls and monolithic melancholy in full bloom.
