'METZ' (album stream)
A press release for the LP claims it's "a return to everything that's good about loud, ecstatic live music," and the band certainly launch into screeching sonic territory. The press sheet further describes the synched-up trio as "one brutally heavy instrument with three heads, slashing heavy-gauge strings, bending guitar and bass necks in weird unison, along with what is probably the loudest drumming ever heard."
Despite the peels of speaker-cone-rupturing six-string distortion, demonically pounded percussion and caustic cries, METZ manage to rustle up some stupidly hummable hooks on their self-titled set, whether on the cyclical cro-magnon bop "The Mule" or the Future of the Left-ish opener "Headache."
You can check it all out down below.
As previously reported, METZ have several upcoming Canadian and U.S. dates, which you can check out here.
