Artist Of The Day: Metz

Noise rock and grunge are two genres enjoying something of a purple patch in popularity in recent years, and with the stream of high quality bands producing it, it’s easy to see why. Both Basement and Japandroids provided some of the highlights of 2012 with their respective releases, and Toronto based outfit Metz wasn't far behind with their self-titled full debut release. Metz saw the band take a few leaves from Death From Above 1979’s particularly well-pruned book, as big riffs and untamed vocals combined with the occasional catchy chorus and many a distorted backdrop to great effect.

It is a sound which is sure to transcend favourably to a live setting, and the band are keeping increasingly esteemed company. May 29 sees the band team up with raucous indie rockers Titus Andronicus and brash hardcore-punk act Fucked Up in a venue which perfectly complements their grimy, distorted sound, and it’s a decision which is sure to make grunge fans’ ears prick up in anticipation.

Here at Muzik Dizcovery, we encourage you to go to as many live shows as you can. And if those words above didn't pique your interest, maybe this song will sway you.
