Thou is a forward thinking metal/punk band from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Through constant output they’ve attained prolific status, having released nearly forty genre bending records on labels like Gilead Media, Thrill Jockey, and Robotic Empire. Each one blurring the sub-genre lines that define the sludge, noise, metal, and experimental music worlds. “Rhea Sylvia” is the first of three EPs the band plans to release in 2018. It is a six song monster that sees Thou exploring melodious territory with more confidence than ever before. All the while maintaining a heaviness and depth that few other bands could ever achieve.
One of my favorite collaborations of all time. I discovered Emma Ruth Rundle in playlists of Gothic Americana and Thou I knew through collaborations with the Body. The Sacred Bones Label continues to impress me with their catalogue. Alexander Brill
The single track that came with this pre-order sounds solid. I'm hoping for Thou to keep their identify but also branch out in a competent manner. Heathen was my introduction to Thou and I have been a huge fan ever since. All the best! Dethroned
