THOU - There There Recorded throughout the turn of the decade, THOU deliver another potent 40 minutes of triumphant doom-laden sludge fury. Atypical heavyness to say the least, the ultra-crushing sound THOU has become known for is subtly enhanced by unique elements ala piano, atmospheric noise, horns, double bass and several re-envisioned cover songs for keen ears to decipher.

Next week, Louisiana metal band Thou will release their fifth album Magus, an impressive next step for a band who’s gradually been building up their sound into a devastating mix of heaviness and emotional intensity. That album follows a trio of EPs released earlier this year, including the droning, abstract The House Primordial, the subdued and acoustic Inconsolable, and the immediate, grungy Rhea Sylvia. Likewise, The Archer & The Owle is a great companion piece to Summit, but since Gilead has already paired those two into one release, it’s not like it takes any extra effort to seek out. Advanced listening: The band’s compilation of early tracks, Oakland, isn’t representative of where the band is now, but it does have some of their best tracks, including the kickass Smoke Pigs, a track about police brutality that, well, smokes.
