4.0 out of 5 stars I love the smell of napalm in the morning., 2 Dec 2012
This review is from: Metz (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.
