Pan-Thy-Monium

Pan.Thy.Monium was a Swedish avant-garde/death metal band formed and led by Dan Swanö with several members from another project of his, Edge of Sanity. The group disbanded in 1996, after recording Khaooohs and Kon-Fus-Ion.

The music is quite strange and complex, with structure and length of songs recalling those of progressive metal. Other features include unconventional saxophone and violin passes, cryptic song names, various noises and bizarre sounds.

Pan.Thy.Monium was a Swedish avant-garde/death metal band formed and led by Dan Swanö with several members from another project of his, Edge of Sanity. The group disbanded in 1996, after recording Khaooohs and Kon-Fus-Ion.

The music is quite strange and complex, with structure and length of songs recalling those of progressive metal. Other features include unconventional saxophone and violin passes, cryptic song names, various noises and bizarre sounds.

All the albums are conceptual albums which are supposed to tell about the life and death of Raagoonshinnaah, a sort of "chaos god", but actually the songs have no lyrics, instead incomprehensible gibberish sung in harsh, death metal-style growling (which corresponds to the assumed nature of the songs' protagonist and also parodies to some extent the so-called "metal epics"), because, as Swanö said later in an interview, they wanted the vocalist to use his voice as an instrument, although some songs include clean or digitized vocals.
