Toronto's Metz, fronted by vocalist/guitarist Alex Edkins, debuted with a string of explosive singles:
Soft Whiteout/Lump Sums (2009),
Dry Up/ Ripped On The Fence (2009),
Negative Space/ Automat (2010).
Metz (Subpop, 2012) bursts at the seams with the
manic atonal Headache and Wasted, delirious songs detonated by
bombastic drums. But that's only the appetizer. The real highlights, and
two of the masterpieces of punk-rock, are
the frenzied industrial psychobilly Wet Blanket
the glorious Get Off that weds
Neu-esque motorik and psychedelic freakout.
On this side of their flaming line are
insanely jarring noise-rockers like Sad Pricks and Negative Space
that evoke the era of Big Black and
Jesus Lizard, while on the other side
more restrained and melodic tunes like Rats
and The Mule that may hint at a radio-friendly future
(the latter enhanced with heavy-metal bombing guitar riffs).
