History[edit]

Depressed Mode was formed in 2005 as a solo project of Ossy Salonen. Tomppa Turpeinen later joined as guitarist and Natalie Koskinen (Shape of Despair) as second vocalist. The band was signed by Firebox Records and recorded their first album Ghosts of Devotion with drummer Marko Tommila. Jori Haukio left the band in late 2007, and Teemu Heinola took his place as a guitarist. Marko Tommila left the band in 2008 and Iiro Aittokoski replaced him. The band recorded its second album ..For Death in summer 2008, and it was released in February 2009, to some critical acclaim (Kerrang! gave it a 3/5 rating).[1] The band is currently looking for a new record deal.
