Mares Of Thrace was Formed in 2009 by vocalist/guitarist Thérèse Lanz and drummer Stef MacKichan, Calgary, Alberta noise-doom duo Mares of Thrace released their debut, The Moulting, the following year. Produced by Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Pelican, Yob), it was critically acclaimed and a hit at campus radio, as was its ambitious follow-up The Pilgrimage, a three-act Biblically inspired tale weaving the historic melodrama of King David’s relationship with Bathsheba around Lanz’s grinding riffs and MacKichan’s juggernaut percussion. Supporting those albums, the band logged tens of thousands of miles touring across Canada and the USA and received rave reviews from noted publications such as Decibel, Terrorizer, blabbermouth, Magnet, and PopMatters. Newly reconstituted around Lanz and bassist/drummer Casey Rogers, Mares looks to build on their magnificent doom-metal legacy with their third full-length, The Exile, arriving March 25, 2022. Their first album in just under a decade, The Exile (engineered and produced by Rogers) was out in 2022.

Mares of Thrace will be touring in US & Canada in June with some amazing bands, and i had the pleasure to chat with the awesome Thérèse again this time to talk on the tour and more behind the scenes work on the band, Check out the complete coverage on the below YouTube Video.
