Thoth Amon A fantastic journey through the pain and misery of human being. Lyrics that stimulate your mind, are combined with claustrophobic sounds. A sludge cornerstone, as in Thou tradition.
Thou have lightened up a bit on their excellent fourth album, their first since 2010’s Summit, without losing their ability to shock and awe. Mixing in clean vocals, acoustic passages, and strings and horns, the 60-plus minute Heathen is the Louisiana sludge/doom band’s most punishing work to date, and yet it's also their most beautiful. The first time I saw Thou play live, it was an earlier incarnation of the band opening for Sunn 0))) at Philadelphia’s First Unitarian Church.
The CVLT Nation Bizarre. Jonathan · February 13, 2014. 1 0 . k 0. Thou, in a relatively short space of time, have become a sort of doom metal royalty. Perhaps it’s because they have been unnaturally prolific throughout the years, churning out a couple of full-lengths but bridging the gaps with several EPs and splits each time.
Thou’s new album, Heathen, has range, but it’s something like the range between the horror of death and an almost peaceful acceptance of its inevitability, between the looming cataclysm and a halting spiritual perception of something that will outlast it - or at least the lesson learned that the finite minutes we have now are worth seizing for all they are worth, and that it is pain which grounds us in what is important. Heathen is this Louisiana band’s fourth full album and the first since 2010’s Summit

Thou have doom metal's steadiest hands. Their new record, Heathen, is a half hour longer than its predecessor, 2010's already exhausting Summit, and plays like a double album – if a double album were made by a band with no interest in the meandering avenues one can go down. Of course, typing out Thou lyrics is a totally thankless exercise.
