Information MMXXII

The current trio consists of a guitarist/vocalist, bassist and percussionist. TFO uses elements of orchestral percussion with trance-like rhythms instead of a traditional drummer. Together with low-pitched strings and apocalyptic chants, an abysmal soundscape of death is formed. The debut album "Feeding The Abyss" was released in 2003. After that, it has been sparse of new material except for a few sessions that have been released. Since 2019, TFO has been very active in terms of creativity and releases. The second full-length album "Negative Evocation Rites" was recorded and released in 2020. Over the years there have only been a few performances.
