More on METZ:

METZ, Alex Edkins, Hayden Menzies and Chris Slorach 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 ever heard. It’s a return to everything that’s good about loud, ecstatic live music, while still carving out some heavy new business. Over the last three-and-a-half years, METZ have played in basements, skate shops, clubs, and festivals, sharing stages with Mission of Burma, Death from Above 1979, Archers of Loaf, Mudhoney, Oneida, Constantines, and NoMeansNo (read more @ Sub Pop).
