Country: USA
Genre: Metal, Doom, Sludge
Label: Robotic Empire
Tracks: 8
Length: 30.50'

Thou is a five piece band from Baton Rouge, Louisiana who formed in 2005.  Thou play a raw, oppressive and heavy as fuck style of music that incorporates elements of metal, doom, and sludge within their sound.  Since forming in 2005, Thou have released full-length LP titled Tyrant in September of 2007, a full-length LP titled Peasant in November of 2008, a full-length LP titled Summit in September of 2010,  a full-length LP titled Heathen in May of 2014, and a ten song EP titled The House Primordial in May of 2018.  In addition to their full-length LP's Thou have released a prolific amount of split LPs, EPs, 7"s and compilation tracks in addition to their solo output.  Thou have done splits with The Body, Black September, Leech, Haarp, Salome, Kowloon Walled City, Moloch, Great Falls, The City Is The Tower, Human Intruder, Mohoram Atta, Hell, Hirs, and Barghest.  Thou has been one of my favorite doom/sludge bands since at least 2007 and this band is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down.  Inconsolable is Thou's latest eight song LP, but don't expect their usual uniquely oppressive/ominous metal, doom, and sludge.  Inconsolable is an eight song collection of stripped down acoustic songs.  Musically, Thou give nods to bands such as Nirvana and Pygmy Lush with these collection of songs.  Overall, Inconsolable makes for a dark, eerie, and atmospheric listen.  Overall, Inconsolable makes for an amazing listen and definitely should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!  Inconsolable was released via Robotic Empire records on May 31st, 2018.
