METZ / Metz [2012]

Canadian noise punks Metz make their full-length debut on a 2012 self-titled record clocking in at barely 30 minutes.
While they are a fantastic live act to catch, the studio recordings don't do them justice.  It's still loud, noisy and abrasive but there's a finely polished tone to it that I just can't seem to shake.  You're going to hear a lot of comparisons to Nirvana's Bleach days and for good reason, there's a lot of similarities to that sound only this time around it's a harsher sonic assault to the ears.  Not to say Metz is a bad band, it's just without the frenzy of their live performance, you realize just much they are in need of diversity in their songwriting.
