Stream METZ’s New Album Strange Peace
Toronto rockers METZ are back with more skull-shaking, propulsive punk. Their third LP, Strange Peace, picks up where 2015’s II left off, serving up 11 tracks of pure, unadulterated noise-rock. The band’s summer single, “Drained Lake,” was par for the course: a study in driving drumbeats and screeching guitar riffs. But another single, “Cellophane,” slipped in catchy chorus chants, possibly signaling a turn toward the melodic for the Canadian power trio. But if you’re jonesing for the hell-raising jams you’ve come to expect from METZ, fear not. Tracks like “Mr. Plague” and “Common Trash” bring the thrashing chaos you know and love. Check it out below.
