Thou - Peasant [Autopsy Kitchen Records - 2008]

Thou make a brand of gut rumbling doom/sludge with a distinctive American tinged flavour to it, adding in elements of  bastardized country rock, grunge, dramatic/ atmospheric American  rock and blues. Peasant is this five pieces second album.

But please don’t be put off by my mention of other musical genres than doom; this doom through and through, it’s just the band nicely and distinctively manage to mix in theses other flavours with out taking away from the choking, bog pulling and led weight doom vibe. On offer are 6 tracks that run from around the 5 minute mark to near on 12 mintues; the pace goes from rumbling deep doom chugs and low scapes littered with sand paper vocals, to feed back lit harmonic country rock risers that sink into doom Myers, to sludgy slow doom groove rides down and down.

A competent and original sounding second album of doom craft that balances swamped sludgy doom vibe with more atmospheric and tuneful grains.
