Thergothon - Stream From the Heavens + 1 Bonus Track (1994 - Remastered 2000) Classic Album

Genre : Funeral Doom Death
Country : Finland

Thergothon is considered to be one of the pioneers of the Funeral Doom. Crushing riffs & slow rythms. Death growls and bizarre clean vocals. A sound very darkened and cold, sinister and distressing. Really are devastating and depressive melodies! Unfortunately Thergothon only realizes 2 demos and this album; the band splits up after this work. The lyrics are based in writings of H.P. Lovecraft, horror and esoteric literature!...Highly recommended for darkest nights!

This album is for fans of Evoken, Skepticism, Worship, Esoteric, Mournful Congregation & more...
