Description

Toronto-based trio Metz unleash their highly-anticipated third full-length album, Strange Peace, an emphatic but artful hammer swing to the status quo.Strange Peace was recorded in Chicago, IL live off the floor to tape with Steve Albini. The result is a distinct artistic maturation into new and alarming territory, frantically pushing past where the band has gone before, while capturing the notorious intensity of their live show. The band continued to assemble the album (including home recordings, additional instrumentation) in their hometown, adding the finishing touches with longtime collaborator, engineer and mixer, Graham Walsh.

Strange Peace isn't merely a collection of eleven uninhibited and urgent songs. It's also a kind of sonic venting, a truculent social commentary that bludgeons and provokes, excites and unsettles. With all the pleasurable tension and anxiety of a fever dream, Strange Peace is equal parts challenging and accessible. It is this implausible balancing act, moving from one end of the musical spectrum to the other, that only a band of Metz's power and capacity can maintain: discordant and melodic, powerful and controlled, meticulous and instinctive, subtle and complex, precise and reckless, wholehearted and merciless, brutal and optimistic, terrifying and fun.

"Their whiplash of distortion is made with precision, a contained chaos. But you would never talk about them like that. Because Metz are not something you study or analyze," wrote Liisa Ladouceur in Exclaim! "They are something you feel: a transfer of energy, pure and simple." In other words: to feel something, fiercely and intensely, but together, not alone.
