Sweden's Pan.Thy.Monium. Distorted bass with bluesy scales and well placed saxophone licks or breaks is like a brief summary of what this band sounds like. Some other webzines qualify them as "how Frank Zappa would sound if he played a death metal band with Dan Swanö recording it". Actually, this isn't false at all. It is melodic, weird, brutal, anything. From their first demo, "…Dawn", to their last masterpiece "Khaooohs And Kon-Fus-Ion" they have been creating a strange kind of death metal, definitely unique in everything - Bass, weird keyboard use, saxophone, sampling a crowd of people… well, an extraordinary musical experience indeed.

Any other fans ?

Yes, one of my fav bands ever, I have only Dawn of Dreams, wich is awsome, and Khaooohs And Kon-Fus-Ion, but I didn't listen to this one. I really like the thing that they're so brutally progressive sometimes, and the sax just sounds great.

Khaooohs And Kon-Fus-Ion is more melodic and less brutal than Dawn of Dreams, but it owns as much. Great band. Rumors says that they planned their separation in 1996 WHEN they formed Pan.Thy.Monium.

Awesome band. I really LOVE Khaooohs, the bass riffs are amazing! And the funky saxophone solos are just too damn good
Excellent, excellent band!

I've noticed long ago that Lykathea Aflame has some quite similar riffs. To check if you like P.T.M !

@Cryptic : I don't really like Khaooohs as I crave the other releases, this album seemed quite weak to me.
The 20 minute track from Dawn of Dreams is among my favorite songs. Damn, this band needs more praise.

Yay! mp3s! Thanks for posting!

I've actually wanted to check out this band for a while now and I couldn't find any mp3s. Anyhow, I'll give these a listen.

an amazing band ... once again Dan Swano amazes every one .. all the bands that he worked with have something special and this one does too ... very technical and very wierd at times with lots of melodies on sax and jazzy tunes , sometimes the ambient sounds which build the atmosphere which portrays a really scary world . have heard '..Dawn' , 'Dawn of Dreams' and khaoohs .. all these albums are amazing and very very unique . in this world where a death metal band props up at every corner of a street which sound similar to morbid angel or death or slayer, these ppl made their own sound .. and for that i respect this band a lot \m/

After listening to the 2 mp3s I must say, I'm impressed. Definitely the most unique death metal band I've heard. I shall be looking into this band for sure.

*Emotion* Ah. I'm glad I made some people interested in this band. The french extreme metal band Carnival In Coal said to owe everything to Pan.Thy.Monium, for they inspired them more than a lot.

HAHA damn, same thing here, I just burned 3 Carnival in Coal to CD. The only track I've heard didn't impressed me that much.

So...the usual question, anyone knows a band similar ? I think that Lykathea Aflame is similar, if we omit Aag's blues-influenced soloings for some oriental ones.

Similar to Lykathae Aflame? Interesting. Though the MySpace doesn't work for me at the moment.

One of the most unique death metal bands that I have heard, and definitely one of my favourites. Dan Swano is just a genius. Their songs are very complex and they just create such a nice atmosphere with the various bizarre sounds and the use of the saxophone and violin. I particularly loved the Dawn Of Dreams album.

I totally agree, this band is exceptionnal. My favorite is Khaooohs and Kon-Fus-Ion.

About Carnival In Coal, their best is the last one, called Collection Prestige. It's more conventionnal than Pan-Thy-Monium (as they try to stick to the chorus-verse structure), but very good nonetheless.

We'll have to do it again !

A Question : is that really a water-filled saxophone on track 6 of the Dawn Of Dreams album ?

I really don't know how did Dag do that thing, but if you're refering to the "submarine soprano" name I found it in their myspace adress, on an article where Dan Swano comments on the albums.

Eating my fav. Cookies to one of my fav. albums.



I just visited their myspace and the stuff Dan Swanö writes about the lyrics are hilarious, in a funny way.

"The lyrics were a combination of improvised stuff a la Obituary* and the lyrics from the innersleeve of a hardcore record that we bought from a lowprice mailorder during the recording.. If you listen carefully you can hear Robert (now in Edge Of Sanity) sing a lot of stuff about society and the people with the power!!"

*If you didn't know already, Obituary has no offical lyrics. Or didn't have, I'm not sure, I only listen to the first two albums, I have no idea about their later releases.
