Depressive Age was a German thrash metal band from Berlin. The group released four studio albums throughout the 1990s before renaming themselves D-Age and disbanding in 2001.


Depressive Age was founded under the name of Blackout in 1984, with the band releasing one demo before changing their name to Depressive Age in 1988. The group released their first studio album, First Depression in 1992. First Depression was followed by the albums Lying in Wait (1993), Symbols for the Blue Times (1994), and Electric Scum in 1996, the latter two of which showcased less thrash metal influences and included forays into alternative rock. In 1997, the band once again changed their name, this time to D-Age, releasing the extended play Smalltown Boy, which featured a cover of the Bronski Beat song of the same name, which had previously appeared on Electric Scum. 1999 saw the release of the compilation album From Depressive Age to D-Age, and in 2001, the band broke up. The band reunited in 2003 as Depressive Age, with vocalist Jan Lubitzki as the sole remaining member from the group's previous incarnation. Depressive Age broke up for a second time in 2004.
