Thou - Heathen (2014)
Thou is a doom/sludge/drone metal band from Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Their lyrics deal mostly with social decay, death.
Despite having only released four full-lengths - Â?PeasantÂ?, Â?TyrantÂ?,Â?SummitÂ?, and "Heathen" Thou have an extensive and varied discography. The band have released several EPs, including a collection of Black Sabbath covers (Â?Through the Empires of Eternal VoidÂ?) and splits with bands such as Kowloon Walled City, Leech, and Hell.
This band is one the hardest working in the Metal Scene today. They have signed to numerous record labels to release their music. But they also let fans release all of their music for free off their official website.
Thou play long, slow crushing sludgy droning doom songs. Their songs wont cheer you up but they will make you feel you have been hit by a 1000 Ton Truck. But in a good way.
Mitch Wells - Bass
Andy Gibbs - Guitar
Matthew Thudium - Guitar
Bryan Funck - Vocals

Review taken from pitchfork.com:
The first time I saw Thou play live, it was an earlier incarnation of the band opening for Sunn 0))) at PhiladelphiaÂ?s First Unitarian Church. Shaggy locks of hair obscured most of their faces, and their skinny arms were clad in flannel and neutral t-shirts. There was nothing outwardly Â?metalÂ? about their presentation, as long as one ignored the ominous stacks of amplifiers looming behind them on the low chapel stage. They were unassuming, and it was all very unremarkable, until the first note rang out and the rafters shook and the stained glass rattled as Thou proceeded to browbeat the audience with their apocalyptic doom. The band has toured the world and racked up stacks of accolades since then, but youÂ?d never know it from speaking to any of its members.
Within a genre that prides itself on theatricality, ThouÂ?s lack of pretension and their commitment to the DIY world from where they came is refreshing. The band refuses to hide behind elaborate stage shows or tour laminates, releases boatloads of new material every year, and still prefers to pile into their beat-up red van and play all-ages DIY spaces. They hail from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but could seemingly care less about fulfilling anyone elseÂ?s Â?Southern sludgeÂ? stereotypes. Basically, Thou have always been Thou, and their stellar new album, Heathen is a portrait of a band that is in complete harmony with itself, if not the world it inhabits.
ItÂ?s also their first full-length since 2010Â?s also stunning Summit, though the band have released a cavalcade of splits, EPs, and covers since then. TheyÂ?re nothing if not prolific, and luckily, everything theyÂ?ve released since their first 2005 demo easily stands up to the most rigorous standards (especially their penchant for recording brutalizing Nirvana covers). This album is no exception. Though Heathen stretches well past the hour mark, the album must be digested as a whole.
The bruising power these songs wield is great and terrible. This fourth full-length is undeniably the bandÂ?s most punishing work, and yet is also their most beautiful. Thou explore their melodic potential to an almost startling extent, and devote more than a few moments of the sprawling collection to gentle, uplifting harmonies. The rivers of oppressive sludge are broken up by three short, quiet instrumentals, written around pastoral acoustic guitars that occasionally echo EarthÂ?s dreamy recent output. For the first time, they've allowed a faint glimmer of light to shine through the overbearing gloom.
Not only that, but for the first time, the album also includes clean vocals courtesy of close band ally Emily McWilliams. Her warm, clear tones lighten up the darkness, and add an almost joyful element to HeathenÂ?s shuddering dirges. McWilliams also played puppetmaster for all the strings and horns that pepper the album and add splashes of color to ThouÂ?s usual dark sonic palette.
The albumÂ?s first track, Â?Free WillÂ?, is ominous and somber, building in intensity over the course of nearly 15 minutes and neatly exemplifying what's so compelling about ThouÂ?s trance-inducing chords and tense, ultimately cathartic crescendos. Vocalist Bryan FunckÂ?s near-feral howl commands and chastises, laying out the albumÂ?s themes of power, despair, defiance, and free will. His delivery may verge upon black metal in its throat-scraping mania, but the words he speaks are grounded in crushing reality, not fantasy. The demons he confronts are real.
The aforementioned first track, Â?Into the MarshlandsÂ?, and Â?Immortality DictatesÂ? stand out as album highlights, with the latter sneaking up out of the gloam. In direct contrast to its stark title, the third and longest interlude Â?Take Off Your Skin and Dance in Your BonesÂ? follows one bright, rippling melody before sinking deep into the mire with the next trackÂ?s explosive bait and switch. Â?Immortality DictatesÂ? underscores McWilliamsÂ? wispy vocals with a ghostly choir, then plunges straight into a caustic dull roar. Other songs like Â?At the Foot of Mount DriskillÂ? and mournful closer Â?Ode to Physical PainÂ? are more inclusive, weaving strains of melody over and under abrasive, fuzz-drenched doom riffs in more traditional Thou style.
They may have lightened up a bit, but Thou have definitely not lost their ability to shock and awe. Those who appreciate the electric frisson of the bandÂ?s lumbering doom riffs and FunckÂ?s acerbic snarl will find much to appreciate here, and itÂ?s hard to see even a casual listener taking issue with the more experimental bent of the LP, especially when it works so well. Consumed by struggle and steeped in agony, Thou have truly reached a summit.
