Unavailable on vinyl for many years. Mare remains one of the enigmatic entries in the Hydra Head roster of artists, as this eponymous EP represents the band-s one and only recording. This Canadian trio consisted of vocalist & guitarist Tyler Semrick/Palmateer, Rob Shortil on bass, and drummer Caleb Collins. The band had a short run from 2004 to 2007, emerging out of Toronto-s death & tech/metal community with Semrick/Palmateer had cut his teeth on vocals in The End. On the five songs of Mare, the band assembled a menacing composite of styles and forms // sludge/metal, math/rock, classic prog idioms, and the diaphonic harmonies from Bulgarian chorals.
