Baton Rouge, Louisiana's Thou are one of heavy music's most forward-thinking and prolific bands, with nearly 40 records to their name and nearly as many genres laying bent and busted in their wake, from sludge to punk to noise. In keeping with this, the group has revealed plans to release not one, not two but three EPs this year, The House Primordial (May 29th, Raw Sugar Records), Inconsolable (June 29th, Community Records) and Rheia Sylvia (July 27, Deathwish Inc.). They've dropped a cut from the last of these today. Sinister and enthralling, "The Only Law" is part industrial, part goth, part black metal, part sludge, all Thou.
Rhea Sylvia is available for pre-order from Deathwish here. See the cover art and track list below.
