The thundering Toronto pigfuck power trio Metz wrecked whole worlds with their 2012 self-titled debut. They took their time in putting together II, the big follow-up, but it’s finally about to arrive. The new album is leaner and more direct than its predecessor, but it also has bigger riffs and bigger hooks. It’s just a mean, nasty, expertly put-together rock album. It knows what the fuck it’s doing. We’ve posted the early tracks “Acetate” and “Spit You Out,” and now you can stream the whole thing at NPR.
II is out 5/5 on Sub Pop.
