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, each one blurring the sub-genre lines that define the sludge, noise, metal, and experimental music worlds.
With the impending release of Thou’s fifth full-length ‘Magus’ (August 31, Sacred Bones), they first released their EP ‘The House Primordial’ (May 29, Raw Sugar Records) followed by the ‘Inconsolable’ EP (June 29, Community Records). This Friday, Thou will release the ‘Rhea Sylvia’ EP on Deathwish Inc.
‘Rhea Sylvia’ 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.
Thou has unveiled their cover of Crowbar’sThe Lasting Dose — listen to it now, along with a playlist and write-up about their home state of Louisiana’s heavy music scene, via Revolver Magazine.
‘Rhea Sylvia’ is available for pre-order from Deathwish here!
