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, ach one blurring the sub-genre lines that define the sludge, noise, metal, and experimental music worlds.
Rhea Sylvia is one of three EPs the band plans to release in 2018. It 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. Listen to the album’s first single, “The Only Law,” on YouTube.
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).
