There are two bands with the name Phlegethon: 1. At the beginning of ´88 TEEMU, JUHA and LASSE got together with an intent to form a band. The first songs were strongly in the veins of early SLAYER and SEPULTURA. Lyric-wise the band wanted to create something different from the other bands, texts were inspired on the basis of their odd dreams and visions influenced by surrealistic paintings. The name PHLEGETHON was found from a book about Greek mythology.
