MARES OF THRACE
THE PILGRIMAGE
SONIC UNYON

Canadian female duo Mares of Thrace avoid the sophomore slump with a scintillating 10-track sludge metal salvo entitled THE PILGRIMAGE. Expertly captured by Sanford Parker, this collection of hypnotically-driven doom-encrusted songs exhibits the unit’s vitriolic venom from every feral growl (“The Perpetrator”) and intentionally recorded guitar squeal (“The Pragmatist”,“…and the Bird Surgeon”) while the dense percussive battering valiantly juggles off-kilter switches and raging rhythms with thunderous displays of power and technical savvy. While Mares of Thrace does have obvious influences showing throughout (Isis, Mastodon), their overall presentation offers a twist on the familiar formula with clever songwriting and excellent production values backing up the tandem’s seething delivery. -MikeSOS
