Grunt Grunt Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

We rehearse a lot, we make new songs for a new live set and we are currently working on the second album.

2.Recently you where a part of a split, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

We are less « pure grind » than before, we are more rock'n'roll. We are putting some slow down tempos between blast beats.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

We have no lyrics. We consider that the music express all in itself. The vocals are like an instrument, as a second kind of guitar if you like. If Grünt-Grünt has a message it's in the whole music and album cover art. We are angry and hysterical in general

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Grunt Grunt'?

When we were searching for the name back in the days, we wanted something that express angryness. Because we are involved in comics making, we took the name from the Freak Brothers. When the brothers have no dope, or are angry, they constantly say « grunt ». So we took it.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

The best shows we played were when we made the first part of Total Fucking Destruction and Napalm Death. The crowd was awesome !
It's difficult to describe our stage performance, it's better to ask the public !

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

We are working on that at the moment.

7.Over the years you have been a part of a good amount of splits, what is the motive behind doing all of these split albums?

In fact we made 3 splits with Yattaï, Faxe and PUT. We like to share with bands we really like and it's a good way for people to know our work.

8.You have worked with a great amount of labels over the years, what are some of the more current ones that you are working with these days?

We worked with a lot of labels for co-prod issues. Now we are working with Bonobo Stomp, a local label.

9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of grindcore?

Hard to say, we are not so much known.

10.When can we expect another full length album and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

As we said, we are working on the second album. This will be release in 2016.
Musically, Grünt-Grünt plays unholy grind'n'roll exclusively.

11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

When we started the band, bands that have had an influence were Nirvana, Excruciating Terror, Napalm Death, early Nasum, Brutal Truth, Total Fucking Destruction, Brutal Truth, East West Blast Test, Darkthrone, Sepultura, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Green Beret, Black Flag amongst others.
Now a days we like Electric Wizard, Goatsblood, Rupture, Anti Christ Demon Core, Apathetic Ronald Mc Donald, Internal Rot to name a few.

12.What are some of your non musical interests?

We are involved in art in general. The singer makes video art, the drummer and the guitar player are comics drawers.

13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Thanks for the review and interview !
