Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

We Butter the Bread with Butter/Lions Lions/Honour Crest

When: Mon., Feb. 17, 6:30 p.m. 2014

If you thought this band was a joke, you’d be partly correct. Originally a death core duo from Lubbon, Germany, their intention was to be as ridiculous as possible. Shortly after forming in 2007, they decided to become more serious and as they grew, they acquired three more members in the summer of 2010. Now, they are touring in support of their latest release, Goldkinder, a collection of epic intros featuring shrieks layered over heavy guitar riffs. With songs like “Alles Was Ich Will,” and “Meine Brille,” they sound as though the Trans-Siberian Orchestra ventured out of Christmas music, and they look like they adopted the visual aesthetics of Kraftwerk along the way. Their shtick ventures into the ridiculous at times, but they’re surprisingly listenable. You have no idea what they’re saying, but their musical riffs easily get stuck in your head. (Trenholme)
