Strong like an ionic bond, conducts electricity


Metallic bonding is classed as positive ions floating in a "sea" of delocalised electrons, this allows firstly for a very strong bond, as it's ion based, therefore it's held together by the electrostatic attraction , and the important part, which I think is what you're after is that the delocalised electrons can carry an electric current, therefore are conductive
