Toronto hardcore outfit Metz have shared a new single, “Demolition Row.”
The track comes as part of a new split 7-inch with UK punk band Adulkt Life. Today, Metz has shared their contribution, “Demolition Row.” We haven’t hear much from the band since the release of Atlas Vending, but today’s release makes up for that. The gritty tune comes packed with brooding basslines and gritty guitars, coming together in wavering layers for a perfectly disorienting anthem.
“It’s quite singular,” Metz’s Alex Edkins explain. “We’ve never sounded this way before.”
Listen to “Demolition Row” below.
Adulkt Life’s songs, “Book Of Curses” and “Ants & Lions,” were meant for their 2020 album, Book Of Curses, but were cut. Frontman Chris Rowley calls “Book Of Curses” a “belligerent satellite” for the end of time “like in a few weeks.”
“When you’ve made yr small space attack ship mostly from sharp sticks and dashboards and recycled fuel stuffs Metz ship looks clean and tended for battles to come,” Rowley adds of the collaborative 7-inch. “Very happy to be sharing crew n rink with them.”
Those tunes accompany “Demolition Row” perfectly. The split 7-inch is out on March 4th via What’s Your Rupture? Pre-order the 7-inch here.
