Metz: A Royal 'Headache' In 2012, the Toronto punk trio has made some of the loudest noise in music. Watch the band visit KEXP in Seattle to perform "Headache," one of the best songs on Metz's self-titled debut album.

Metz: A Royal 'Headache'KEXP

If you aren't excited to have the loud, aggressive post-hardcore band Metz live on the air with you, then you might as turn in your headphones. All early reports back from listeners and fellow DJs had been that the Toronto band brings it live, and in the studio at KEXP, Metz did just that. Alex Edkins' ferocious vocals and guitar work, Chris Slorach's rumbling bass and Hayden Menzies' pummeling drums all added up to one of the loudest and best sessions I've seen this year.
