Bred in the tight-knit punk community in Ottawa, Canada, Metz has been creating an experimental brand of punk-influenced garage rock since its formation in the mid-2000s. Currently based in Toronto, the three-piece employs grunge and noise elements into its sound, resulting in a no-frills noise rock that gets straight to the point. Metz released its eponymous debut album in 2012 to much laudation from critics and connoisseurs of unpolished, lo-fi music.
