Throughout their career Thou has been very prolific band, but their new album Heathen is actually the band’s first full length in four years and the first music they’ve released in over a year. The album is a powerful work that combines the band’s traditional doom metal with elements of shoegaze and post-rock to create a masterful work where the music truly compliments Thou’s lyrical vision. The tour reached NYC last week and we caught the Sunday night show at Saint Vitus. The band’s set consisted of five of the seven full songs from Heathen and despite some humorous in between song requests, it seemed as if the sold-out crowd was with them the whole way. Thou are currently on tour across the country throughout April but will return to NYC in July for several local shows.

I recorded this set with the Sennheisers mounted in front of the soundboard and mixed with a board feed. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
