Finnish symphonic doom / death metal band Depressed Mode have released a new single, “Death Walks Among Us”. 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 comments: “This song is the opening track of our upcoming album. I composed the song 12 years ago, right after our ..For Death album (2009). We recorded a demo of this song back in 2011, and after that the band went silent. I’m really happy that we recorded it for our new album, and hope you all like it as much as we do! It represents the more death metal side of our album.”
