metz - s/t lp

METZ are Toronto's answer to a world obsessed with electronic music and pop star drivel....THAT IS THEY WANNA SMASH THEIR GUITARS OVER ALL THOSE NOT READY TO ROCK THIS HARD.......METZ harken back to those innocent days of the 90s when all i listened to was MUDHONEY, NIRVANA, DRIVE LIKE JEHU, SONIC YOUTH. FUGAZI and
SHELLAC tapes as i drove around town with my friends (hey we had nothing better to do).....

their post grunge guitar attack is chock full of aggro AM REP / TOUCH & GO sludgy vibes, noise rock dissonance, SST rambunctious post punk and DISHORD records style rule-breaking hardcore/post hardcore........  for fans of ANYTHING LOUD, RAW AND HEAVY, METZ's new S/T LP is FOR YOU.  this ain't no emo / wimpy indie rock......  Steve Albini and David Yow might just get RATTLED listening to their oh so CACOPHANOUS SCRAPPY rock n roll CHAOS......

when SUB POP heard their demos, they JUMPED at the chance to release their debut LP.  and they can't stop ranting about their new favorite canadian rock n roll destroyers - METZ play like 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 you’ve ever heard. It’s a return to everything that’s good about loud, ecstatic live music; a frantic nod to Nation of Ulysses, Shellac, The Pixies, The Jesus Lizard, and Public Image Ltd. at their most vicious, while still carving out some heavy new business. They play the instruments, the amps, and the room.

maybe why SUB POP is so stoked is that they haven't released an LP this awesome since last year's OBITS album (or that it's been a long time since SUPER FUZZ BIG MUFF came out.....mudhoney's and sub pop's best album, maybe even one of the best lps ever.....)

METZ s/t lp is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! 
one release that might just sneak onto many critics' year end lists......
          (perhaps even the one here at TINY GROOVES......)

LISTEN BELOW and GET READY FOR YR FACE TO MELT 
and YR SPEAKERS TO BLOW UP.......




WATCH METZ LIVE ON UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA'S RADIO K HERE...............
