THOU Umbilical (gold) col lp + col 7″



Limited gold coloured vinyl. Thou’s first full-length release of original music since their 2018 Sacred Bones debut “Magus” and 2020’s collaborative album with Emma Ruth Rundle, “May Our Chambers By Full”. The songs on “Umbilical” are the band’s most concise to date, adding mosh-worthy riffs and heavy breakdowns to their iconic sludge metal with a hint of punk and hardcore. Thou has always been a force of raw energy and outspoken dissent that defies easy categorisation and challenges the listener to grapple with the complexities of existence. Though often lumped in with New Orleans sludge bands like Eyehategod and Crowbar, Thou crosses genre boundaries and draws inspiration from a variety of influences ranging from 90s proto-grunge icons like Nirvana, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden (all of whom they’ve covered extensively) to the raw intensity of obscure 90s DIY hardcore punk found on labels like Ebullition, Vermiform and Crimethinc.
