May Our Chambers Be Full - Excellent, Based on 2 Critics - 90
Based on rating 4.5

Collaborations between artists can be a strange affairs. More often than not, there’s a power struggle at work, and the result is more akin to a guest spot for one of the artists. When Thou and Emma Ruth Rundle first colluded at Roadburn Festival in 2019, that clearly wasn’t the case. They presented a series of songs that suggested a perfect union.

AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

May Our Chambers Be Full sees Louisiana sludge metallers Thou and Kentucky post-rock singer/songwriter Emma Ruth Rundle team up for an evocative seven-song set that stands at the nexus of doom, gothic rock, post-grunge, and black metal. Both artists excel at conjuring cinematic swells of brooding ambiance, and while Rundle has thus far avoided any forays into traditional black metal, her icy post-folk/metal compositions have always hinted at the genre's predilection towards windswept despair. Those two worlds collide on the seismic opener "Killing Floor," a lush and lumbering slab of doomy shoegaze that's lent extra heft by the discordant dovetailing of Rundle's and Thou frontman Bryan Funck's disparate voices.
