9/10 Mike Staff review, 10 October 2012

Canada’s Metz are the first band on Sub Pop to sound like they’re on Sub Pop in some time, clocking in at under half an hour for 11 frantic tracks of demented neo-grunge with propulsive drums and tooth-rattling guitars, part Mudhoney/Jesus Lizard/Nirvana angst bluster, part Cramps/Dwarves demented swagger, the vocals are a strangulated roar and the bass is clanky and bassy and the guitars are trebly and gainy and it’s loads of fun.

It’s reminding me a little bit of Leeds’s finest Jesus Lizard revivalists Blacklisters actually, and other recent grungey types like Cloud Nothings and Dope Body spring to mind as well. It’s pretty shitkicking actually, in places it’s even reminding me of Todd or maybe Part Chimp, but with a scything Albini-esque guitar shriek cutting through with brutal, glassy clarity.

In a way I’ve mixed feelings about it, in a way it’s a little pedestrian, it’s all been done before, and for my money the Dope Body album earlier this year did much the same thing a little bit better, but on the other hand it’s a blast of straightforward noise rock fun with decent riffs and it’s brightening up my day and I bet their live shows are brilliant.
