METZ is coming! Next week: Heerlen, Rotterdam Groningen26-05-2016
Last year, METZ, the furious Canadian post-harcore power trio, gave us their clanging, banging, utterly badass album "II". And now, as an encore, they've teamed up with a kindred spirit to record a couple of new songs. "Swami" John Reis is a garage-punk veteran who's spent decades in bands like Drive Like Jehu, Rocket From The Crypt, and Hot Snakes. For a Record Store Day 7", Reis booked himself some studio time with METZ, and the team ended up with two new songs which walk the line between the freewheeling old-school honk of Rocket From The Crypt and METZ's guttural bash. It's pretty awesome! Give it a listen via Pitchfork.
METZ has three shows planned in NL next week, supported by fellow Canadians Solids:
30-05-2016: Heerlen (NL) @ Nieuwe Nor
31-05-2016: Rotterdam (NL) @ Rotown
01-06-2016: Groningen (NL) @ Vera
What happens when a seemingly irresistible force meets an immovable object is a serviceable metaphor for the music METZ creates, both live and on record. The guitars are titanic, the drums ill-tempered, the vocals chilling, and the volume worrisome.
