Event Details

Mistletone is amped to announce Toronto power trio METZ making their maiden tour to Australia.

METZ play like one brutally heavy instrument with three heads, slashing heavy-gauge strings, bending guitar and bass necks in weird unison, along with what is probably the loudest drumming you've ever heard. It's a return to everything that's good about loud, ecstatic live music; a frantic nod to Nation of Ulysses, Shellac, The Pixies, The Jesus Lizard, and Public Image Ltd. at their most vicious, while still carving out some heavy new business. METZ's debut album, produced by Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck) and released last year on Sub Pop via Inertia, articulated the unrelenting live force of the band with deafening clarity. It's a hell of an experience, listening to METZ; stand back, and watch jaws drop within the first four measures of their set. This is post-hardcore sludge-punk, distilled into pure, but artfully rendered chaos by one of the most brutalising bands in the world toda
