Do you prefer it when a band makes you feel a) happy, b) sad, or c) like you’re being smashed over the head repeatedly with an iron bar?

If it’s one of the first two, then maybe music isn’t your thing. But if it’s the latter of these choices, then seek out Metz immediately. The Toronto trio played last night at the Bowery Ballroom and rocked so hard that blood was spilled. Quite literally.

Three songs into their set of visceral, pulsating noise-punk, bassist Chris Slorach was forced to leave the stage for a couple of minutes to take care of a nosebleed. The eruption of claret was triggered after he was hit square in the face by a projectile thrown by an overexcited member of the crowd. It wasn’t done in malice- it’s just that Metz’s hardcore onslaught is the sort of music that elicits extreme reactions. And those ones are often the best. – [NY Post]

After a wild-n-sweaty show at Shea Stadium on Tuesday, METZ‘s tour brought the noise to Bowery Ballroom on Wednesday night (4/17). I wondered whether the crowd at 18+ venue Bowery would be anything like Shea’s all-ages mayhem, and clearly it was at least a little. As you can see in the pictures in this post, Slorach bandanged his facial wound in true punk fashion with duct tape.

It was an all-Toronto night featuring industrial garage from tourmates Odonis Odonis and psych-punk from The Soupcans, making for a great, loud night all around. Check out more shots from Wednesday’s show below…
