Finnish symphonic doom/death metal band Depressed Mode released a new single and music video Dissociation of the Extinguished Mind which features Jarkko Kokko from Mors Principium Est on lead guitars. 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.
"The song is about the breakdown of the mind and how all the traumas come together into one big lump that eventually breaks into pieces. In such a situation, the person of the song no longer is able to keep it together, neither can’t find help in medication or therapy. As a solution, he develops his own world into which he dives, while traveling to the distant stars.
”They tell me I’m cured
They tell me I’m well
I’m still strapped down
This is my Hell.”
A video of the song describes how each of us has our own cross to carry. Sometimes it can weigh so much that you just have to let go of everything. Some survive alone or with the support of friends, and others sink into deep waters. However, it is worth remembering that no one has to be alone, and help is always available.” says the band's singer Otto Salonen about the content of the song."
