Metz (2013)

Toronto, ON

The heavily buzzed Toronto post-hardcore power trio is one of the most eagerly requested bands since Sled Island 2012. Equal parts Jesus Lizard, Hot Snakes and Nation of Ulysses, Metz produce heady sludge-punk that proves its relevance, not through tired, anthemic call to arms lyrics, but through undeniably vital and visceral sonic blasts. Guaranteed to be one of the most talked about shows of Sled Island 2013.

"…they’re like a less unhinged Jesus Lizard, full of coiled ferocity that engulfs you, releases you briefly, then swallows you up again.” - SPIN
