Can Metz Live Up to the Hype
Honestly, Metz was a hot commodity a few years back, and I feel like their resurgence is perfectly timed. I’m weaning myself off (a little) from the mild folky tunes of Winter doldrums, and looking forward to getting my rock on, so this is fitting. Musically, the band’s as dangerous as they’ve been before, though there’s a bit of a change in the vocals that’s slightly new. To me, this track feels like a post-hardcore blast of rock, which is perfectly fine, but I’m interested to see what the rest of Metz II sounds like; it’s being released by Sub Pop on May 5th…and for the record, I’m buying into the hype.
