Metz concerts not for the weak-stomached

Canadian noise-rock trio mercilessly pummels a Casbah crowd

Metz' sonic onslaught kept building in momentum and volume.
Metz' sonic onslaught kept building in momentum and volume.

A live performance by the Canadian noise-rock trio Metz is a force to be reckoned with; in fact, it’s not something that can be handled by the weak stomached. Metz is a band that plays so loud and aggressively that they may leave you concussed for days after seeing them play. The band’s performance at San Diego’s Casbah on August 19 was no exception, leaving many San Diegans with a severe ringing in their ears.

"The Swimmer"

...off of the Toronto trios post-core sophomore set Metz II

Touring in support of their second album, Metz II, the rockers were only a few decibels away from literally tearing the roof off of the Middletown venue. The show was proof that the band’s two albums are immaculate representations of what happens when the three members get together and the intense energy they produce. Each song Metz played was a harder punch to the gut than the previous, with heavily distorted and dissonant guitar riffs played over irregularly timed, raid-fire rhythms.

Opening with “The Swimmer” from Metz II, the band played with an unstoppable momentum throughout the show, until finally ending with “Wasted” from their debut, leaving everyone there, including themselves, completely drenched in sweat. Metz epitomizes the spirit of rock ’n’ roll and has proven to be a significant addition to the Sub Pop stable as well as one of the most critical contributors to modern music.
