All Music Guide:
A virtuoso on a myriad of stringed instruments, Minneapolis-based experimental/progressive folk artist Paul Metzger focuses much of his creative energy on his 21-string modified banjo. A student of both Eastern and Western traditional music, Metzger first appeared on a split album that featured guitarist Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance) and lauded improv drummer Chris Corsano on one side and Metzger's unique improvisational guitar work on the other. He released the full-length Three Improvisations on Modified Banjo for Chairkickers Music in 2005, followed by Deliverance for the Locust label in 2007.
