The sandwich is possibly the greatest food-based invention. We need to be able to eat and post on Facebook at the same time. Sandwiches allow us to do this. The best thing about sandwiches, however, is that anybody can eat them. Vegetarian? Put some more salad in. Belly doesn’t like wheat? Use some gluten-free bread then! And everybody has a favourite sandwich. Even bands…

Hello there, Mat Welsh of While She Sleeps. What’s in your favourite sandwich.

Bread: Tiger bread.
Filling: Halloumi. Mushrooms. Mozzarella.
Salad: Lettuce. Spring onion.
Condiments: Garlic mayonnaise.

Tell us about your favourite sandwich.

“I would definitely throw on some grilled halloumi, some mushrooms, some Quorn, a bit of mozzarella, a bit of garlic mayo. Probably looking at a nice tiger bread. Well, it’s giraffe bread now isn’t it. God bless that little girl, making a change. There’d be a bit of lettuce and a little bit of spring onion. No tomatoes, man. [Descends into indecipherable swearing at tomatoes.]”

Loz Taylor (vocals): I don’t know anyone who hates tomatoes as much as him.

What’s so good about it?

“The halloumi adds a salty thing and the mushrooms are a meaty texture but there’s no killing in there. That’s it, man. Fire in your mouth. You don’t need to kill an animal, bro to have a nice sandwich. That’s what it’s called: The No Death Delicious.”

Metal rating? 6/6 because he fucking named it.
