Funeral Doom History!
28 Years Ago: THERGOTHON complete Fhtagn-nagh Yog-Sothoth

Bleak Atmosphere; Slow, Tortured Riffs; and Monolithic Growling Vocals are some of the words that come to mind as I listen to Thergothon’s Fhtagn-Nagh Yog-Sothoth. This unreal piece of Funeral Doom was released 28 years ago and still sounds way ahead of its time! What are your thoughts on this underground classic?

 

We found it a suitable way to express and exorcise the negative emotions we were experiencing. I think each of us was suffering from the kind of existential angst common to most teenagers everywhere. I don’t think we were influenced by any other bands but in retrospect it’s quite clear we were influenced by Bathory (especially “Blood Fire Death” & “Hammerheart”), Paradise LostCathedralBlack SabbathTiamat, Mana Mana and obviously my lyrics were influenced by H.P. Lovecraft. As for places I’ve been interested in all kinds of desolate and abandoned surroundings since a kid, the atmosphere felt in those kind of places might have been and influence on some level.Niko Skorpio / Thergothon interview, We Wither, 2011
