Video Premiere: Pale Mare – “Descolada”

Pale Mare

Toronto’s Pale Mare is a band you may remember from their self titled EP that came out two years ago. Comprised of only three songs, the EP gave us just enough of an inside look to know the band’s roots come from the hard hitting but sludgy side of metal. Simply meaning, this thing ruled and is still something we’re spinning when in need of that extra adrenaline.

Good. Stuff. Period. Anyway, we recently posed our set of Profile questions to the band and drummer Mike White gave us the rundown. Head inside to check it out and hit those links to snag your own copy. Continue reading
