Thursday, time for a cover.
"Supernaut" is the fifth song from the album Vol. 4 by British heavy metal band BLACK SABBATH. The tune is known for it's "riff", a tune that has inspired many rock acts during the years.
Sacred Bones Records is celebrating BLACK SABBATH's self-titled and "Paranoid" records with a brand new covers album called "What Is This That Stands Before Me?". The covers album features Thou performing "Supernaut," Marissa Nadler doing "Solitude," and quite a few more!
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of both the self-titled BLACK SABBATH album and "Paranoid", Sacred Bones is proud to present "What Is This That Stands Before Me?", a compilation of SABBATH covers recorded by artists from across our roster. BLACK SABBATH stands at the crossroads of every Sacred Bones employee and artist's musical taste, and it was a great pleasure for us to work together to reimagine some of their most beloved songs. Here you'll find SABBATH through the filter of the post-Soviet darkwave of MOLCHAT DOMA, the experimental folk of HILARY WOODS, the laid-back psych of MOON DUO, and a half dozen more genres besides. Satan's coming 'round the bend.
Today's version is made by the American sludge metal band THOU, a band that was formed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 2005.

Enjoy today's tune!
