Fhtagn nagh Yog-Sothoth
Stream from the Heavens

Fhtagn-nagh Yog-Sothoth is the only demo from the Finnish doom metal band Thergothon, released in November 1991. The name is inspired by the work of H.P. Lovecraft; thanks to him, the band appeared on the communist stage.  

The songs contained on this record had a huge impact on funeral doom metal and were often performed by other bands from this trend.

Album information Edit

As a curiosity, it can be added that Yog-Sothoth is a deity of the R'lyeh pantheon created by Lovecraft, and the word "fhtagn" is often translated by the researchers of its work as "sleepy", "awaiting" or as verbs derived from these words. The title would therefore translate as "Waiting for Yog-Sothoth"; in fact, the words "The Gates are open for Yog-Sothoth" appear in the Evoken song. In fact, they took their name from the second track of this demo.
