My name is Bled. I live in Toronto.

I work in music,

and fully volunteer in comics

The Toronto trio METZ is rude, severe, and excellent. They make rock music, all of it loud, most of it precise without feeling checked. It’s raucous stuff, heavily indebted to music recorded for the Chicago label Tough & Go in the eighties, and recordings made in the nineties for the D.C. label Dischord. We are happy to be streaming their self-titled début album, exclusively, for one week. A few days ago, I spoke on the phone with the band’s guitarist and singer, Alex Edkins.
