Gewgawly I / Thou "NORCO Original Soundtrack"
Continuing their practice of bucking typical metal tradition, Thou's latest record, a split release with composer Gewgawly I, is a soundtrack created for the highly anticipated new video game "NORCO." Gewgawly I has created a master work of ambiance, not only reminiscent of some of the best game soundtracks from the' 80s and '90s, but also a stunning work of contemporary experimental music pushing the genre forward in exciting ways. Thou has rounded out the game's grit with a wash of down-tuned doom and drone.
