So it’s been a while since our last post.
It’s year 2010 and a new year in DM camp, and there are news coming for you!
But let me tell you something about the year 2009.
The year began with some live shows, and with the release of our second album “..For Death”.
The album was a big step forward in our musical direction. We had developed forward as musicians, but also as a group.
We received lots of comments regarding our new release. Some were like “why did you change your style?!” etc. But I must say as a composer, and the founder of DM, that we did not change our style. DM was never meant to be a one genre band, but an experience including the reflection of how things are in the world. We have ups and we have downs. That’s why the album has so much different songs, different themes and lyrics.
But also we received lots of great reviews and mostly great reviews.
It seemed like many of you understod what the album was all about and what was the purpose of that album.
The year 2009 offered us some great chances as live performances. We performed with Moonsorrow, Swallow The Sun, Black Sun Aeon, Grave, Nicole, Profane Omen, among many other great bands!
We filmed our second music video “Death Multiplies” in the beginning of 2009, directed by our very own bass player Henri Hakala. But some complications appearead, and we needed to remove the video from youtube. But now, it’s back; you can check it out in HERE
We also recorded one new, still unreleased song, that still needs vocals to be recorded before releasing it!
That’s the year 2009 in a nutshell!
-We already played one great show with Ghost Voyage and Vaskitsa, at Dante’s Highlight Helsinki! Thanks for everyone!
-We are going to update our visual side, as the layouts and logo! Also new promo-shootings are behind the corner!
-NEW merch is coming and couple of new promo songs, cause we are starting the search for a new label!
-New live shows coming, stay tuned, and doomed!
-More news when confirmed!

Attention all metalheads and Press!
The new album that will be released in January/February 2009 needs clarification:
THE GENRE OF THE NEW ALBUM IS “SYMPHONIC DEATH/DOOM METAL” NOT JUST FUNERAL OR DOOM. OUR MUSIC CAN NO LONGER BE DESCRIBED AS “FUNERAL DOOM” CAUSE IT’S NOT. WE GOT ONE FUNERAL DOOM LIKE SONG IN THE ALBUM. IT’S THE TITLE TRACK OF THE ALBUM “..FOR DEATH..” WE ANNOUNCE THIS BECAUSE WE DON’T WANT TO MISLEAD ANY TRUE DOOMSTER TO BUY OUR CD AND BE DISAPPOINTED TO THE NEW ALBUM CAUSE IT WAS NOT ONLY FUNERAL DOOM, OR EVEN DOOM. THE ALBUM IS FOR ANY METALHEAD IN THE WORLD. WE UPLOADED A “ALBUM SAMPLER” ON OUR MYSPACE SITE SO GO AND CHECK IT OUT SO YOU CAN HEAR FOR YOURSELF.
THE ALBUM STILL GOT SOME DOOM ELEMENTS, BUT THE NEW MATERIAL HAS DRIVEN US TO THE DEATH/DOOM METAL SCENE, AND WE GOT SYMPHONIC ELEMENTS IN IT.
“..FOR DEATH” SHOWS YOU THE WAY WE ARE HEADING TO, SO IF YOU ARE INTO ANY GENRE OF METAL, IT’S EASY FOR YOU TO FOLLOW US!

The album is titled as “..For Death..” and the tracklist is:

A Glimpse Of Tomorrow
LIVE AT RIGA, LATVIA @ NOVEMBER 28th 2008!
We are playing in a doom event in Riga, the events name is ANTITHESIS II: A Night Of Baltic Sorrow, and it will be held at a club called Melna Piektdiena!

Our gig at the Dark River Fest, Kotka (Finland), 08.08.2008, has been cancelled due to wrong information.
Also the gig at NightLife Rock at 05.09.2008 has been cancelled, due to shutting down the nightclub. Sorry folks.
Our new album recordings will begin at Friday, 18th of July, and will last for two weeks. We’ll write a blog about it to Myspace if we feel like it, otherwise, we wont.
We are having many questions that we would start an Europe-Tour, so we’ll see, maybe it’s possible at some point when we finished the new album and so on.

We have some bad news, the whole event at Kasisali, Lahti, has been cancelled by the gig organizer. SO DON’T COME TO LAHTI THIS SATURDAY! We’re sorry for this, but there’s nothing anyone can do about it.
Eli olemme pahoillamme sillä Lahden Kasisalin tämän lauantain tapahtuma on peruttu järjestäjän toimestä. Kyseessä oli joitakin ongelmia valvonnan kanssa.
Depressed Mode vetäytyy studiotyöskentelyn pariin heinäkuun puolella joten oletettavaa on että seuraavat keikat on vasta Elo- Syyskuussa. Olemme pahoillamme tästä!

We are currently seeking a new drummer, that’s why the following is in Finnish!
Eli haemme uutta rumpalia mahdollisimman nopeasti!
Heinäkuussa alamme uuden albumin äänitykset ja meille on varattu kaksi viikkoa studioaikaa Ulvilan Ansa-Studioilta.
Sinun tulee omata paljon kokemusta ja sinun tulee myös osata soittaa klikin tahdissa, taustanauhojen kanssa.
Ikäsi tulisi olla noin 20-30vuotta.
Treenit noin kerran viikossa.
Ota yhteyttä ja järjestämme koe-soiton!
