A Depeche Mode documentary exploring four seminal albums - Black Celebration, Music For The Masses, Violator, Songs of Faith & Devotion - and the band's rise to electronic music dominance was created by Chrome Dreams Media in 2009. Depeche Mode - The Dark Progression chronicles the band's trailblazing music and how the darkness of their music struck a chord with fans and helped Depeche Mode become one of the most influential and legendary bands of our time.
The film includes tons of vintage interview/performance footage of Depeche Mode along with commentary from their electronic music peers (and luminaries in their own right) Gary Numan, Thomas Dolby, and Andy McCluskey. This is an essential Depeche Mode film and is highly recommended viewing. Stream below:
FYI: the first 15 minutes is an essential overview of electronic music which perfectly lays the groundwork for the rest of the documentary.
