Thergothon made their debut in 1991 with the Fhtagn nagh Yog-Sothoth demo, with funeral doom metal sounds. The band in the extreme Finnish underground scene began to be known and appreciated, in fact, following their style in Helsinki and surroundings, other such bands like Skepticism, Pantheist, Shape of Despair and Tyranny will be born. They also inspired Disembowelment and Evoken (in fact the latter take their name from the song of the same name contained in the above-mentioned album).
After the first demo demo, in 1994, three years later, the band's first and only album, Stream from the Heavens, came out. After this album the band broke up.
In 1996 Niko Skorpio (Niko Sirkiä) and Jori Sjöroos formed This Empty Flow, a band that maintains the depressive atmosphere of Thergothon, although more oriented to dark wave.
Musical style Edit
The music was very slow with extremely deep guttural vocals, using heavy guitar riffs, very low tuned guitars and low lead guitar melodies. In addition to death metal, the band also incorporated influences from styles like gothic rock, ambient or progressive rock.
