Hardcore fans rejoice, Canadian rockers METZ are coming to the Kent!
One of the finest live bands on the globe, and we are thrilled that the Toronto based 3-piece have agreed to play Ramsgate. Bringing their latest and possibly finest record to date, ‘Strange Peace’. Available now from hotsalvation.com
“There’s no doubt they’re one of the most singularly powerful rock bands around. Ignore them at your peril” – 4/5 All Music
“METZ have created an album that has one foot rooted in the best of their past, while the other riotously stretches forward into a future. Long may it continue.” – 8/10 The Line of Best Fit
“Recorded with Shellac’s mastermind Steve Albini, ‘Strange Peace’ is an album that doesn’t need to be explicitly political to make a statement about our current chaotic climate. The opening gallops out of the gate like a malfunctioning industrial robot, a tangle of mechanical riffs and Edkins’ oddly infectious chants.
“The band’s ability to inject melody into the weirdest of places is striking. Designed to lodge itself in the brain of the listener like some insidious implant… cathartic rather than hopeless — an exorcism of nervous energy at a time when it’s direly needed.” – NPR Music
