Thou "Heathen" CD
Since 2007, Thou has released over 20 records (3 full lengths, 5 EPS, and a considerable amount of split releases) and has toured North America and Europe repeatedly, playing nearly 400 shows. They have made a name for themselves as one of the most prolific and consistent bands in the doom and sludge metal scenes, while retaining the ethics of DIY punk. On March 25, Thou brings us their fourth full-length album, Heathen, their first full-length since 2010's Summit. This record shows a clear progression from their earlier works, combining the melody and hopefulness of Summit with the heaviness and melancholia ofPeasant and Tyrant. RIYL: Nature, the sensual world, sexual decadence, pain and ecstasy, actively experiencing the present. Recorded and mixed by James Whitten in New Orleans, LA. Mastered by Adam Tucker at Signaturetone Recording in Minneapolis, MN.
