They wur ane o the pioneers o the funeral doom subgenre, stairtin wi their demo Fhtagn nagh Yog-Sothoth (1991) an continuin their raw, depressin style wi their anerlie album, Stream from the Heavens (1994). Their soond wis extremely slow an dirgit alang in lang pieces, which combined hivy guitar riffs, extremely deep daith grouls an spairse lead guitar melodies. The baund haed awready disbandit twa years afore the release o their anerlie album.

Niko Sirkiä an Jori Sjöroos went on tae form This Empty Flow, which markt a destinct stylistic depairtur frae Thergothon. The project began as somewha o a shoegazer baund, taking cues frae groups like Slowdive, but endit up as mair in the aurie o trip-hop.

Lately Sjöroos haes gained reputation for composin sangs o popular Finnish pop-rock act PMMP.
