The original post

Posted by Estix on 17.05.2006 at 20:05
I was sky high when i got their CD: Thergothon - Streams From The Heavens
It was the best luck that i've had for a long time. And i would beat someone to a pulp to have the original CD...or simply pay lots of money...either way, i'd win.

The band is probably the biggest influence to the funeral/drone doom scene and for finding about them, i have to thank the Terrorizer magazine - issue 144 - May 2006. The band has SUCH an AWESOME atmosphere that it makes others pale in comparision. I simply can't pick a favourite out of the 6 tracks clocking in at 40 minutes. Rather short tracks for doom metal aren't they. But even like that, they did their work perfectly.
The short description written in the magazine about the CD is the following:
Quote:
So leaden and unremittingly heavy that many have found it almost an endurance test, Thergothon's album is an airless, joyless, claustrophobic crush, and not for the faint-hearted. It's hardly surprising that the band called it quits after this, but Pandora's box couldn't be closed - The birth of the entire genre of funeral doom could easily be laid at the feet of "Stream From the Heavens"


I also read from some place that Sunn O))) supposedly owes Thergothon their own existence.
This band that i just discovered a few days ago stormed to the tops of my doom playlist. And it has promise of sticking there for a looong time.

EDIT: don't call yourselves a funeral doom fan if you haven't heard this release

Nothing like the classics for when your in a good doomy mood (which is just about always for me lately). Stream from the Heavens isn't just the beginning of funeral doom, it's an immense album on it's own - legacy aside. It is true that it's a bit short, but nothing is perfect in life unfortunately.

I wept tears of joy when this band introduced me to the dark world of funeral doom. Such a shame they dont have any more albums.

Agreed. There are a couple of unreleased demos that you can find around the internet on blogspots and such but other than that this is all we'll ever have...

I think they only have one demo. And an extra song on some sort of compilation.
All their songs have been covered on the Thergothon tribute that was released by Solitude Productions earlier this year.

Down at the bottom are the unreleased items. Most of them can be heard on youtube or downloaded through a blogspot. I can only guess as to how something 'unreleased' got around to the general public but I'm not complaining . Last I saw, MS actually had one of these demos listed.

Edit: Yep, here it is http://www.metalstorm.net/bands/album.php?album_id=30830&band_id=&bandname=Thergothon
