Terhen was formed in January 2004 under the name Thamuz. Back then we had a few disagreements in choosing the music style and there were also some problems with the members. The band made four songs and in May 2004 we recorded them for rehearsal purposes only. The demo represented our interests in strong black/death metal influences.
After getting some new material done Thamuz got an opportunity we couldn`t resist. We were offered to make a music clip for a fashion show in Beijing. The show succeeded well and the band was satisfied with using this unusual way of promotion.
We went into a studio in October 2005. Even though working in a studio was a new experience for us and we didn`t have much time, we did our best. A demo called Self Crusifixion MMV contained three songs which are also included in this debut album. The band sent a demo to various record companies and to the media.
Soon after this we signed a deal with Firebox. We also changed our name to Terhen. On making the album, Terhen decided to continue co-operation with Mikko Suuronen, who also recorded our Selfcrusifixion MMV demo. The band took also a separate producer, Risto Ylönen, to the recording session.
Terhen started the process on February by recording the drums with our new drummer Joni Romo. The album was mainly recorded on weekends and after every recording sessions the material started to sound more and more like real music. Besides the new drummer the band has got a second vocalist Elisa Pellinen, whose voice is a great add to our music. Altogether we are very pleased with the album "Eyes unfolded".
