Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

Toronto‘s noise-rock bulldozer METZ has definitely slash and trash noise chromosomes
in their DNA. Noise-rock storms through their veins with an uncontrollable speed. Their
new album, titled ATLAS VENDING, the band’s fourth LP will awake this troubled planet
on 9 October via Sub Pop records. More info and pre-order facilities here.
So far they made our ears tremble with lead single ‘A Boat To Drawn In‘ (video below).
And here’s another brutal jackhammer. HAIL TAXI “is about looking back. The lyrics deal
with the idea of reconciling or coming to terms with who you were and who you’ve become” says frontman Alex Edkins.
‘Hail Taxi’ is a vintage Metz earth-quake with a ruthless tsunami of ear-splitting
riffs and sledgehammer drum blows. A volcanic ebullition battering forth and back
with a yawping screech-along chorus in the heated middle. At times, you really expect
that Edkins‘s voice will crash with annihilating force. I’m sure the unbridled wall-of-balls-crushing-sound at play here violates all decibel laws. This could be the sonic vaccine to destroy that nasty coronavirus.
Listen and watch (video by Director A.F. Cortés)…
