|Thergothon Stream From The Heaven Limited Heavyweight 180gram Vinyl LP
The classic album from these cult Finnish purveyors of crushing doom metal – now on Peaceville on heavyweight vinyl with updated art. This edition of 'Stream from the Heavens' is presented on 180gm heavyweight black vinyl with updated artwork & sleeve content.
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.
