Mares of Thrace
Mares of Thrace

If guitarist/vocalist Thérèse Lanz (left) looks a bit familiar to you, it might because of her recent stint as bassist for the mighty KEN Mode. That time has passed (they've moved on to include Andrew LaCour of Khann in her stead), but all the while Thérèse has been involved in her main gig Mares of Thrace.

Take the very deceiving (and almost twee) photo above with a grain of salt because the Canadian duo (guitar/drums) explore a nihilistic cocktail of noise-punk, caustic hardcore and bowel-rattling sludge on their latest LP for Sonic Unyon Metal, The Pilgrimage (due April 24th). Stream the new song "The Gallwasp" from that LP below..

The pair will haul out their amps and vitriol on a string of US dates that will include a stop at Saint Vitus on May 15th with support TBA. All tour dates are listed with thatsong stream and a full set of live video below... definitely worth a watch.

Meanwhile, KEN Mode will appear at the BV-BBG/Power of The Riff/Thrasher showcase at Scoot Inn on 3/16, part of a full day of shows at the Austin venue that also includes the BV/POTR show as part of the daytime Converse/Thrasher Deathmatch festivities.

Hm... wanted to like that far more than I did.

Mares can do no wrong. Both girls are retardedly talented, make absolutely crushing music, and are a pair of the nerdiest, friendliest gals you'll ever encounter. Too stoked on the new album. This song is devastating.

This proves how much of a joke BV has become. Awful band/Awful music. Scene ladder climbing girls. This is Sludge?

J'en reste baba. Une larme joie s'échappe... Pour redevenir un peu sérieux, actuellement il existe différents types/familles de Widgets

6:39 - What does their being 'nerdy' have anything to do with their music? That they're not that good but are apparently given more credit because they're women and one of them is considered 'hot' is more insulting to them than anything.

They sound like the blo jobbs

6:39 - a band being " nerdy " is a good thing?

that Asian can get it in her brown eye. think she gags on her knees?

Posted by Anonymous | March 8, 2012 8:49 PM

her anus is def. bleached. when u try to look like that and you're in a band, you're obviously all about your sex appeal. and nothing says sex appeal like a bleached anus.

yawn.

Sounds pretty generic metal like half the bands who play Saint Vitus. Was really hoping they sounded more unique. Sounds almost like Salome and about 50 other bands.

Putting bleach on your anus, I'm thinking that has to hurt a bit, no?

Posted by Anonymous | March 9, 2012 3:44 PM

You people talking about these women in a derogatory manner are really lame. These girls rock. You need to stop jerking off and start learning how to talk to actual women.

MARES OF SAUSAGE

They only need a bass player and a drummer, then they'll rule...
The bass drum is a sausage dehydrator.

New track sounds great! The effects on the vocals really make them "bite".

Good work Mares!

Teach everyone how they should talk to actual women, or pictures of them.
