Have You Heard? Metz - Spit You Out

Metz - Spit You Out

Matching the sheer velocity of the live Metz experience is a gargantuan task, yet ‘Spit You Out’ does just that.

They say that you should stick to your strengths. So it’s not with complacency, but with determined, sheer rigour that Metz are back with an ear-splitting, brilliant piece of scuzzy noise-pop. ‘Spit You Out’ is an intense piece of music, if you ignore for a second the Beatles-esque unified singing in the song’s chorus, buried underneath shards of drum stick and guitar string. With a lo-fi studio sound that’s indebted somewhat to Times New Viking, there’s a rasping, dirty hook, punctuated with animalistic drumming and a guttural, primal bass-line. Supposedly inspired by ‘modern culture’, capitalism and disenfranchisement, this is a roaring, snarling behemoth of an effort by the Toronto trio, complete with – bien sûr – an obligatory gnarly guitar solo.

Matching the sheer velocity of the live Metz experience is a gargantuan task, yet ‘Spit You Out’ does just that – you can almost taste the stale beer odour, feel the sweat and see plaid-covered bodies fly around with teenage abandon. To sum it up in the most articulate and grandiose way possible: fuck yeah, this rules.
