One Question Interviews: Bütcher

R Hellshrieker (Bütcher – vocals)

SPB: During live shows you've played an amazing Agent Steel cover, which sounded great. However, I couldn't help myself thinking something more unhinged should be covered by you, for example “The Burning Of Atlanta” by Whiplash, as it would fit better to your style (in my mind at least). If you were to play a cover set, what would it look like? 

R Hellshrieker: We are glad you enjoyed the Agent Steel cover. It's always so much fun to play an underground classic and everybody can scream their guts out to the chorus. I totally understand what you mean though, as Whiplash is a huge influence as well -- and lots of comments of old school maniac go in that direction. It should come as no surprise then that we actually covered “The Burning of Atlanta” for quite some time in our set! So, a very cool suggestion from your end, and maybe that's a callback for us, to start playing that again live! Who knows?
