MARES OF THRACE: Full Album Streaming At Exclaim! As Street Date Closes In
North American Tour Begins Next Week
The Pilgrimage, the awaited second album from Calgary's MARES OF THRACE, will finally see worldwide release via CD and digital download next Tuesday, April 24th. To count down to the release date, today Exclaim! Magazine is hosting a full album stream of The Pilgrimage AT THIS LOCATION.
MARES OF THRACE will take to the road across North America for a solid month in conjunction with the release of The Pilgrimage next week as well, the first show taking place only two days after the album's release.
MARES OF THRACE Spring Tour:
LBH - Kamloops, BC
The first in a multi-album worldwide deal with Sonic Unyon Metal, The Pilgrimage sets a new bar for MARES OF THRACE, with nearly 43 minutes of material more creative, compelling and crushing than before. Recorded at Chicago’s Engine Studio with producer Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Pelican, YOB) and mastered by Collin Jordan at Boiler Room, The Pilgrimage has been killing at print and online media, radio and more, the band's dynamic, unique brutality winning over journalists worldwide. The record took the #1 place on Earshot's Canadian college radio Loud chart, and the band owns the main cover of the April issue of Beatroute Magazine. The duo also recently filmed a video for the track "The Perpetrator" which will be released shortly. A vinyl version of the album will see release in the coming months as well.
"The Pilgrimage is the best kind of sophomore outing; same man-eating, fire-spitting Mares, now with razor hooves and venomous spines for a mane. Ride at your own risk. 8/10" - Decibel
"...a much busier, more dynamic effort than its predecessor; one that never flails in its considerable ambition, but, rather, simply continues driving forward, all menace and swagger. 8/10" - Magnet
"...the Canadian duo (guitar/drums) explore a nihilistic cocktail of noise-punk, caustic hardcore and bowel-rattling sludge..." - BrooklynVegan
"Another essential, formidable release for 2012 that knocks most other bands into the dirt. 9.5/10" - Doommantia
"Fascinating and compelling, The Pilgrimage is founded in a desire to create..." - Cvlt Nation
" The Canadian duo doesn’t toy around with studio tactics or post-production nonsense; what you hear is how it was intended to be released. 4/5" - About.com
"...hard-hitting, sludgy noise rock full of nightmarish riffs and venomous, seething vocals that perpetually make it sound as though Lanz’s throat is being melted with acid..." - MetalSucks
"...a defining work that captures the full dimensions of the band’s artistic vision. Easily one of the first essential albums to come of 2012. 4.5/5" - The Bone Reader
"Dare I say Canada’s #1 metal album of the year for a second time? 9/10" - This Is Not A Scene
