Thou starts around 2005 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and during 2005-2007 Bryan and Josh joined them, in 2007 they drop out a 3 songs demos, since that, they have been putting out a lot of splits/ep’s and a few albums through Robotic Empire, Feast Of Tentacles,One Eye Records, Level Plane, Gilead Media,Vendetta, Perpetual Motion Machine, Southern Lords and the list goes on, no doubt they are the most active bands of Doom/Sludge nowadays. Speaking about the sound…what do you expect when i say brutal? well, put that word in your mind each time you hear this band, they have elements from drone, doom, sludge, atmospheric/black metal and the final result sounds sick, sometimes you’ll feel your hard.I really think this band gets better and better on each ep,split, whatever they put out, “Summit” for me, is their best work and probably some of the best albums from 2010, it’s like all their works has been summed up and they drop those 6 bullets directly to your head.
I’ve see them just once and it was one of the best shows i went for long time, they have the same sound live, i don’t know how many songs they played but what i remember so well it was the vocalist, while he’s singing he see you pretty pissed off, i was kinda scared to be true, but, maybe because i was pretty high, anyway, if you have the chance to see them live, don’t miss their big show. For those who know them just because a split or even if you aren’t familiar with the genre, you will not be disappointed by these guys. You can get their stuff via Robotic Empire|Gilead Media|Halo of Flies|Feast of Tentacle|Vendetta
