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 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.
The lyrics are supposed to tell about life and death of Raagoonshinnaah, a sort of "chaos god," but actually appear to be 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"), although some songs include clean or digitized vocals.
The group disbanded in 1996, after recording "Khaoohs & Kon-Fus-Ion", which seemingly featured the death of their main hero.
