METZ

Three-pronged sludge-punk thrashers METZ are bringing their ecstatic live show to Laneway 2016. After two years of non-stop touring in support of their rightly adored eponymous debut (Sub Pop, 2012), Metz released unto our earholes their second album II in May 2015. Full of grating riffs, relentless drumming and a whole lotta noise, NPR praised this record as ‘[not] just purgative music hell-bent on bloodletting and catharsis; it's also carefully composed, with loving attention paid to fine detail and immaculate precision.’ This one is gonna be awesomely loud. Earplugs advised.
