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) makes its first appearance with lead single “Mortal Quarry”, released February 11, 2022.
