Thou 'Baton Rouge, You Have Much to Answer For' 12" Gatefold LP
from Robotic Empire: "Easily one of the most exciting modern sludge/doom bands going, THOU calls Louisiana home and have channeled lifetimes of depression & decay as the inspiration for "Baton Rouge, You Have Much To Answer For." Scathing commentary laid down by hateful blackened vocals is merged with some of the most crushing riffs conceived in ages. Incredibly deep tones and bludgeoning drumming are combined with a surprising amount of melody and years of honed songcraft to create a powerfully heavy release. Two pummeling tracks over 15 minutes span the A-side, while the B-side of equal length finds an instrumental drone piece along with a spectacular NIRVANA cover that puts a completely crushing take on the "Bleach"-era tune, ’Sifting.’ "
