Description

The classic album from these cult Finnish purveyors of crushing doom metal - now on Peaceville on heavyweight vinyl with updated art. Thergothon, from Finland, was formed in late 1990 by Niko Skorpio Sirkiä (vocals, keyboard), Jori Sjöroos (drums) and Mikko Ruotsalainen (guitar). They started life as a death metal act, progressing to slow, seriously heavy doom metal, later becoming classified as pure sadness & despair in musical form. In early 1991 they recruited a local friend Sami Kaveri as a second guitarist & it was in November 1991 that the 'Fhtagn-nagh Yog-Sothoth' demo tape was recorded, inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. In Autumn 1992 Thergothon started recording their debut album, 'Stream from the Heavens'. Two tracks from the Fhtagn-nagh Yog-Sothoth demo were reworked & recorded for this release. Non-metal influences including prog, goth, ambient & experimental music helped to shape the band's sound & atmosphere further. Thergothon disbanded in 1993, before the eventual 1994 release of 'Stream From the Heavens' though over the years the band has earned a cult status in the underground through this single album. In the mid-later part of the 90's the "Funeral Doom" genre emerged. Thergothon was deemed as one of the originators of the sound & style and an important cornerstone for the whole genre. This edition of 'Stream from the Heavens' is presented on 180gm heavyweight black vinyl with updated artwork & sleeve content.
