I'll admit I bought Tyrant when it came out and didn't think much of it at the time and since then this band has flown under my rader. Maybe my waning interest in sludge, perhaps. However, I am totally, 100% all over this new album. I got linked to it via another band on last.fm, checked out the youtube link and holy fuck!!! This album is really solid, diverse, has tons of great riffs, amazing guitar tone.... kind of reminds me of Ocean (US) or Buried at Sea a bit but with tighter songwriting.

Anyway - I can't fucking believe how good this record is!! I just ordered the CD from the label after shamelessly downloading it..... fuck me does this band have a lot of material out there to track down.

Anyway, surprise of the year so far is this record.

This album is great, one of my favourites of the year so far for sure. They have it for pay-what-you-want on bandcamp: http://thou.bandcamp.com

Also most of their discog is available for free here: noladiy.org/thou

And here's a preview track from their collab with The Body: https://soundcloud.com/vinyl-rites/thou-the-body-the-wheel-weaves

Cool thanks!! I can never get into the vocals of The Body which is a shame b/c I kind of dig what they're doing. But that's great, I can send the label some cash direct for the CDs, buy some MP3s right from the band and not feel like a cunt for downloading....

I bought it unheard from the label too and checking it out on bandcamp. I'm into this. Call me a late bloomer! Razz

Shit, if I'm thinking right, Hell and Ash Borer are playing the day after they play the Pittsburgh show with The Body.

Haven't heard the new LP yet, but I'm sure it'll rule. All of my Thou stuff is on tape/vinyl, so I figure I might as well wait for the vinyl version to come out.

Thou is tight. Their music goes to a lot of different places but it always seems very honest to me. They are a very intense live band as well.
