We Butter The Bread With Butter writes its own tale in the language of Grimm

Let’s not be mistaken with an apparently stupid name (seriously, who would give such a name to their band?!), We Butter The Bread With Butter hides this patronymic particularity under a nice coat of fat-free compositions. And we shouldn’t either let their typical metalcore haircuts lead us to believe that these Germans only are yet another version of a trendy musical movement without bringing anything new to differentiate them from the lot. First, there is great humour explaining this name which aimed at mocking the trend for bands to have very long names within the past few years. There is also a true boldness mixing electronic music to metal, in this time and age when such experiments smashes itself against the critical wall of the most conservative part of the metal community. But it doesn’t really matter what the reaction is, as long as a reaction there is.

And in the end, more than to the metalcore branch itself, it is almost to another tradition of German musicians that we could attach them: electro-metal/industrial played by bands such as Rammstein and Oomph! with whom they share another artistic choice: not sacrificing their native language to the English language which rules the world of rock. For WBTBWB, the German language is an instrument of its own.

We tackle these topics with Maximilian Pauly Saux, the band’s bassist who tells us that he, indeed, likes a bit of bread and butter for his breakfast…

Volk-Man (Die Apokalyptischen Reiter) could pretty much teach history, sociology or geopolitics. Basically, he has knowledge, eloquence and is able to captivate and maintain your attention. It is for this reason that this interview flows easily from one subject to the next : from philosophy to open-mindedness in music to the latest political events taking place in North Africa. In fact, he has quite strong opinions about the Occidental attitude towards Egyptian and Tunisian affairs.

At the end of the interview, the discussion was largely about the relationship between rock music and the German language, as well as their sad heritage that the Nazis left on the German music culture.
