A Look at the Polaris Long List: 26. Mares Of Thrace - The Pilgrimage
Look at that picture up top, then hit play on this album. Not to be sexist but yes, those women created this music. Others are raving about this ‘noise-doom’ (read, ‘metal’) duo’s album, The Pilgrimage. Frankly, I found it tough to get through, and even harder to process from a crticial point of view. Did I like it? Was it good??! I wonder if this is how pure rock heads feel when playing hip-hop albums? There’s only been one ‘modern era’ metal album I really was into and I’m not even sure how that happened but that album was The Deftones’ White Pony. This was not that album in terms of how I reacted to it. Maybe Mares Of Thrace’s The Pilgrimage will be a surprise short list nominee but if it is, it won’t be with my vote.
