Farmakon biography After hearing Opeth's Still Life album through his friend Toni Salminen, vocalist/bassist Marko Eskola (previously a funk singer with no real prog or metal background) taught himself the growling technique used by Mikael Akerfeldt and even found himself coming up with metal riffs. Deciding to put them to use with a full band, he recruited Salminen as a guitarist, Riku Airisto (from his previous band Planar Gallery) on drums, and Lassi Paunonen as a second guitarist, creating Farmakon in 2001

Farmakon is the third album of the Finnish funeral doom metal band Skepticism. The Raven and the Backward Funeral" and "Farmakon Process" are alternate versions of tracks that appeared on the band's previous EP, The Process of Farmakon. The Raven and the Backward Funeral" – 7:39. Shred of Light, Pinch of Endless" – 8:19. Farmakon Process" – 6:17. untitled) – 13:16 (The song's title appears on the album cover as a small smudge of color).
Most sections of Farmakon don't possess this slowness, although it still feels incredibly slow because of its minimalistic nature. The first three tracks are almost up-tempo compared to the band's early works. The first sound that hits you on Farmakon is that of an church organ. That's the first thing the listener will notice about Farmakon. Instead of funeral dirges, Skepticism promised to make their "scariest album yet". Some of the songs are still very depressing in nature, but there are places where the listener will find themselves quivering in fear of the next cymbal crash. And this is all fulfilled in the untitled track (which is a puff of smoke on the tracklist).
