Pantheist  


Pantheist was formed initially as a one-man project by vocalist Kostas in 2000, with guitarist Niclas joining soon afterward. The duo recorded a demo, and later were joined by the rhythm section of Frederic and Oscar, completing the band. Their 2003 debut, O Solitude, is every bit the doom album the title might imply, with the shortest of the five songs being almost eight minutes long and two well over the ten minute mark. The vocals are usually of the death variety, but the pace and depth of the music makes this band more a funereal doom band than a doomdeath band. It's pretty ponderous stuff, but the songs are rich with atmosphere and shade, and the lyrics add to the somber moods. Not the most uplifting of albums, but O Solitude is a solid ultra-slow doom release.

Founder Kostas Panagiotou relocated to England in 2004 and recruited a new lineup, which produced two albums in 2005.
