TeHôM is the croatian alias name of the author Siniša Očuršćak (professor of philosophy at Jezuit University for Philosophy in Zagreb, editor of the book "The mind-body problem in contemporary philosophy") and Miljenko Rajaković (co-member and helped also on 2nd Album "Theriomorphic Spirits", released 2000.) was 1st and bigest dark ambient project until now from Croatia.

Project was early years from beginning patronaged by Douglas Pearce of Death In June and his label Twilight Command under his well known New European Recordings (NER) and World Serpent Distribution, later Tesco Distribution. There released 1996. with some of their friends the first album "Despiritualisation of Nature". After it only TeHôM with Siniša and Miljenko remained. 3 years later they realeased 2nd album "Theriomorphic Spirits" and then Siniša died of cancer. He was a front line soldier during the Croatian war of Independence. Speculation as to the cause of the death generally assumes that it was almost certainly the result of a war-related illness, but it was never confirmed. Their two albums “Despiritualization Of Nature” and “Theriomorphic Spirits”, heavily influenced by the occult arts of which Očuršćak was a practitioner.

His musical exploration was ritualistic and esoteric and pretty original, he promised a lot but unfortunately he died. This project comes from the fog, the cutting wind of the mountain cliffs, the misterious silence, from the mythological dream. Ancestral landscapes evoked by hypnotic, abstract and organic soundscapes. Siniša died of cancer '97 and Miljenko Rajaković aka Mary (his long year friend and co-member) reactivated TeHôM + Principia Audiomatica projects 2007. Start working on new materials for 3rd long awaited TeHôM album.
