Long considered one of the planet’s most bombastic live acts and foremost purveyors of abrasive melodicism, METZ has spent the majority of their 11-year tenure crisscrossing the globe and bringing their unparalleled energy directly to the people. Determined to connect with their fans and to find a way within the confines of the pandemic to create a live experience as dynamic as their most recent full length, ‘Atlas Vending,’ METZ took to the stage in October 2020 at the Opera House in Toronto to livestream a performance of Atlas Vending in its entirety. Now, the band announced the release of this raw and powerful performance.
To celebrate this release, METZ have shared the striking live performance video for Pulse from the Opera House. The opening song of a set that grabs you, shakes you, and doesn’t let go until the final crushing blow and the feedback subsides, this video, and the full ‘Live at the Opera House’ album and film, are clear reminders of the unparalleled energy and spirit of METZ live. Watch METZ perform Pulse Live at the Opera House via YouTube below.
‘Live at the Opera House,’ recorded by Graham Walsh and mixed by Seth Manchester, is available now on all digital service providers via Royal Mountain Records and Sub Pop, with bundles at Bandcamp and Royal Mountain’s webstore that include the full concert film directed by the band’s longtime video collaborator Scott Cudmore. Also starting today; a pre-order for the limited 1,000 piece pressing on tricolor (Black/White/Oxblood) vinyl which includes a download of the full concert film.
