Toronto sludge-monster power trio Metz are a day away from releasing their mean-as-fuck new album II. And after sharing the early tracks “Acetate” and “Spit You Out,” as well as a stream of the whole album, they’ve made a video for “The Swimmer,” another, big, heavy bag of hate. Directors Michael Leblanc and Scott Cudmore’s clip for the song tells the story of a grown man’s baptism and of its grisly aftereffects. It would come off squalid and ugly and jittery even if Cudmore didn’t tell the story with jerky GIF-style film-loops. Check it out below.
II is out 5/5 on Sub Pop.
