Depressive Age  

An intriguing group, Depressive Age could be loosely categorized as a progressive thrash group, though they certainly don't sound like traditional progressive metal bands nor are they really a thrash band, except on occasion. A pretty unique and original sound here, especially on Electric Scum, their last full-length album. They later shortened their name to D-Age (hence the title of their 1999 compilation album), were reported as disbanded in April of 2001, and then reunited, but apparently the band is now disbanded for good. At last report they were working on a new album (tentatively entitled New Bomb Energy), but those songs have apparently moved over to vocalist Jan Lubitzki's new band, Jan Dorn.
