Here's a killer split featuring new music from Oakland, CA's Ragna and Baton Rouge, LA's Thou.  Ragna is a two piece band from Oakland, CA who formed in 2012, from the looks of things.  Ragna play a killer style of music that incorporates elements of atmospheric black metal, doom, and sludge within their sound.  Since forming in 2012, Ragna have released a seven song LP titled All's Lost in June of 2012, a five song EP titled Unbecoming in January of 2013, a seven song LP titled Wash Away in August of 2015, and a six song LP titled You Take Nothing in April of 2017.  On their side of the split, Ragna offer up three tracks of killer atmospheric black metal, doom, and sludge. 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,  an eight song 12" titled Inconsolable in May of 2018, and a full-length LP titled Magus in August 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.  On their side of the split, Thou offer up two tracks of killer metal, doom, sludge, and grunge.  Overall, this split makes for an amazing listen and definitely should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
