METZ “Acid b/w Slow Decay” 7" printed
METZ have once again formed a noisy symbiosis with Three One G, releasing their second 7” with the label. Written and recorded during the 2017 Strange Peace sessions with Steve Albini, these two beloved offerings, initially left on the cutting room floor, were revisited, reworked, and ultimately reinvigorated during the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic. With “Acid” and “Slow Decay” the Canadian trio continue to break new ground while honing their ever-evolving nuanced approach to pummeling rhythms and off kilter melodies. Of track “Acid,” the band describes it as “a song about having a fresh perspective, a newly widened outlook on the world and one’s life. Being shaken awake from a malaise and realizing there is no time for petty bullshit. Love what you love, love who you love! Embrace it and don’t wait.” Indeed, a fresh perspective and a sense of urgency is something Metz always manages to offer. This 7″ is now being physically released for the first time via Three One G, limited to 1000 copies, with one side of the vinyl being specially printed by The Black Moon Design, and featuring cover art by Jonathan Bauerle.
