[DISTRO] THOU | The Archer And The Owle [12"]
"Recorded throughout the turn of the decade, THOU deliver another potent 40 minutes of triumphant doom-laden sludge fury. Atypical heavyness to say the least, the ultra-crushing sound THOU has become known for is subtly enhanced by unique elements ala piano, atmospheric noise, horns, double bass and several re-envisioned cover songs for keen ears to decipher. Along with otherwise unreleased "Summit"-era material, this lengthy EP contains THOU's original half of the now postponed split release with PYGMY LUSH, oddly inspiring the band to then cover two tracks by their collaborators' latest work. Its all spice added to the overall stunning effect of a truly visionary band; intelligent commentary atop six massive tracks of absolutely bludgeoning music. Comes on color vinyl housed in a beautiful spot-glossed "tip-on" classic style gatefold LP jacket, this is yet another brick in THOU's ever-strengthening wall of spite and menace."
