Mares Of Thrace Recruits New Drummer Rae Amitay

Calgary's Mares of Thrace has issued the following announcement about recruiting a new drummer:

"Hello Everyone. So, due to getting into the educational program of her dreams and its subsequent conflicts with touring, Stef has decided to step down.

"She is, as the Dothraki from Game of Thrones say, blood of my blood, I love her very very much and I promise I will keep you posted on her future musical projects, which will probably be very Meshuggah-like.

"However, I am very happy to announce that Rae Fucking Amitay will be playing in Mares of Thrace going forward. She is a Berklee School of Music-trained, metal session-playing, former aspiring Lovecraftian scholar and giant nerd, so please fling all your most unflattering granny panties at her. Also, here's a video of her playing an Allegaeon song."

i wish i knew Rae better than i do. even knowing her as little as i do, i think it is fabulous that Mares of Thrace has recruited her. i have listened to her drumming and her singing and read her interviews - interviews by her and of her. Mares of Thrace has found a gold mine in Rae. i'm looking forward to seeing and hearing more of her in the future.

congratulations to Mares of Thrace and Rae.

Rae is awesome and a sweetheart. She caught a lousy break last winter when David Gold died right after she was recruited to tour with Woods, and I'm really happy that she's found a great new gig. She more than deserves it.
