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, a ten song EP titled The House Primordial in May of 2018, and an eight song 12" titled Inconsolable 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.  Rhea Sylvia is the band's latest six song 12", which was released via Deathwish anf Gilead Media records on July 27th, 2018.  On Rhea Sylvia, Thou offer up six tracks of killer metal, doom, sludge, and grunge.  Overall, Rhea Sylvia makes for an awesome listen and definitely should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
