I was recommended Thou as a similar band to Burning Witch, there are some similarities but there’s less of the sense of personal degradation that you get from BW & Khanate. Heavy & slow sludge doom is the order of the day here but I think they come from a more hardcore background than a metal one so the tone isn’t as crushing as it could be. Vocals are savage rasps. Standout track is “In Defiance of the Sages”. Need to listen to more Thou.
Also – most of their discography is “name your price” on Bandcamp! The albums have different covers though…
