Biography

There was a time, in recent history, when you needed to have at least twelve members to even be considered a band in Canada. It was nearly impossible to tour if you didn’t have access to some kind of personnel carrier, and making a record involved several years of tambourine overdubs. You know there were kids out there who just wanted to get in a van and play loud as hell through an ... Read more in Amazon's METZ Store

4.0 out of 5 stars I love the smell of napalm in the morning. 2 Dec 2012
By Kenneth
Format:Audio CD
Do you fancy having the taste slapped out your mouth and your teeth kicked down your throat in a 30 minute blitzreig of unrelenting noise rock? Allow me to introduce you to Metz's self titled full length. These guys aren't messing around! I thought Cloud Nothings "Attack on Memory" was the most muscular onslaught of 90's indebted post hardcore that was likely to be released in 2012 until I became acquainted with this smoking ball of ferocity. A certain online music vlogger (who shall remain nameless) gave this record a backhanded compliement in a recent review when he said that the songs on here were great but they all sounded the same. He then went on to criticize the bands over realiance on the minor third interval?! As if punk has ever been revered for it's technical ingenuity. Metz aren't looking for Steely Dan comparisons here, this is dionysiac art thats designed to be visceral and immediate and if you can do that with a relative economy of chords whilst taking a utilatarian approach to vocal infelctions then brilliant. This Canadian trio certianly achieve that here and much like the danish teens of post punk outfit Icegae did in 2011, they prove that the right balance of intensity and passion will always be high currnecy in rock music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Faint hearted leave now 25 Dec 2012

Your parents would exclaim 'It's all noise' unless their surnames were Cobain, Pop, Tyner or Moore. Aural assault perfect for Christmas morning. Five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 13 July 2013

A raw, beautiful, and ferocious energy. Certainly a band to watch for the future, but don't listen while driving. Not unless you want to pick up a ticket, that is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brutal and Uninhibited Rock 17 Oct 2012
By J. Hubner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Metz debut is a blistering and punishing 29 minutes of what would be the equivalent of aural shock therapy. Equal parts crushing drums, screeching guitar noise and vocal shredding this is the kind of album that needs to come along every so often to wake us from our everyday coma and remind us that rock `n roll does still exist. And it can still be dangerous.

The Toronto power trio wastes no time in pummeling the listener. Opener `Headache' opens with big drums and massive guitars that are reminiscent of Nirvana's `Serve The Servants' off In Utero. There are many similarities between that Nirvana swan song and this debut. The loud, abrasive guitar spurts and big, overblown drums and of course the primal scream vocals all bring that Seattle three piece that changed everything in 1992 to mind. But besides the `sound' they bring to mind, Metz also has Nirvana's ability to assault you while at the same time writing something you'll remember. Underneath all the violence and anger there's an underlying song craft. But for the most part, Metz just beats the snot out of you. `Sad Pricks' is pure violence and chaos put to tape. `Rats' is the musical equivalent of the bombing of Dresden during WWll. `Knife in the Water' could almost be called catchy. Then the screams begin. `Nausea' actually lives up to it's title. A minute long piece of music that sounds as if the tape machine was about to break. Wobbling all the way through to the end. `Wet Blanket' is a scrapper. Throwing punches all the way to the end. The spirit of Detroit lives in this excellent track. MC5 and The Stooges are alive and well in this bloody nose of a song.

Besides Nirvana these Toronto punks, either intentionally or unintentionally, bring to mind Big Black, old school Dinosaur Jr, The Pixies and Wire on PCP. There's also a similarity to Cloud Nothing. Metz is Cloud Nothing's big brother that just got released from prison.

Metz is a force to be reckoned with. They play rock `n roll that's angry, brutal, violent and dangerous. It's also meticulous, precise, catchy and razor wire sharp. METZ is one of the best rock albums you'll likely hear this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Bout Those Metz 18 Nov 2012
By Nicholas Foley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Precisely ten seconds into the first song it seemed trying to write anything too eloquent about a band like Metz might be pretentiousness in motion. However you approach the intent behind this noise, something is undeniable: this is just rock music, and I can say that with no condescension. Sometimes talk is cheap. Just throw the ball, damnit.

Comparisons to Sub Pop luminaries are spot on although these apparent influences on Metz have seldom sounded this violent. There's finesse here but don't expect to find it in the songwriting. Where a stereotypical grunge song plays with the same old volume results, Metz is in full attack mode for the full half hour. With a consistent tone throughout its remarkable what they're able to do with the formula."Wasted" is as memorable a tune as any Melvins classic and seems happy to dive aplomb into Nirvana musical references, albeit the more abrasive ones. The mix on this album is jagged in all the right ways, letting woozy guitar lines acid wash into the assault of the drums. Meanwhile singer and guitarist Alex Edkins screeches away, his voice often sounding swallowed by his detonative chords. If David Yow sounded like a maniac trapped in a basement, this man sounds like he's drowning in the toxic amount of distortion just three of these instruments are creating.

Music blog hype aside, this album delivers what you'd want from a current noise rock band, and whether or not the emergence of Metz is part of any contrived `revival' in modern music is to be determined. For now, credit to these guys for not trying to reinvent any genre wheels but give it some gaudy new rims.

5.0 out of 5 stars Badass album by a Badass band 10 May 2013
By J. M. Stanley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
To date, I've only seen Metz live in a short set in-store appearance at Permanent Records in Chicago. I was so blown away by their music that I neglected to buy this album while I was there. These guys are the real deal. This album is very representative of their high energy, smack you upside the head sound. If you're a hardcore/punk fan, it's a must buy. Then, go see these dudes in the flesh. They'll knock some rust off your soul.

4.0 out of 5 stars These guys are good! 6 Mar 2013
By Glennnnn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Each original track has its own unique new sound. Very imaginitive compositions, editing and sound processing. The heavy reverb washes over almost everything sometimes but the driving rythms that power this high-voltage group. You can't often tell what the vocals are all about but just go with the sense of urgency. That seems to be enough. This is great work-music. Listening to it keeps me focused and sharp. I'm an artist and when working in the studio gets to be a drag with some boring detail that has to be gotten through, this CD will be one of those used to provide instant motivation!
