In a brand new interview with the “Nothing Surprising” podcast, drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz of long-running Florida-based loss of life metallers CANNIBAL CORPSE was requested if he prefers the transparency and interplay with followers within the social media age over the pre-Web days when not understanding a lot created a sure mystique that’s misplaced on full publicity. He responded (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “It is a powerful one. It’s a powerful one, as a result of, clearly, I really like what the Web and expertise has introduced us, the place you’ve got obtained every part at your fingertips, bands having the ability to take action a lot and know a lot. It is cool, however I assume my old-school mentality or being from the technology previous to that, you type of do miss the mystique of the outdated days the place you did not know a lot about bands and also you needed to get your data from going to purchase {a magazine}, what little data you did get from that or what have you ever, or it is word-of-mouth type of stuff. So I type of miss the outdated mystique of the metallic again within the outdated days like that due to not understanding and never having every part at your fingertips. It is a powerful one, as a result of alternatively, it is good to remain linked with the followers and so many individuals can… We would not be doing this proper now if it wasn’t for that expertise. So it is a powerful one. However I must say, simply trying again at how I grew up and all this, it had that sure mystique. Now perhaps after I was youthful, I might have appreciated it to be like it’s now, as a result of you possibly can suppose again, what I might have identified or may have identified or this and that, which you do not know any higher since you simply do not even consider that, in fact, when that is all developing sooner or later and also you’re simply residing within the now. However I look again at how I grew up, and it was enjoyable going to file shops and discovering new bands that method and that is how you bought right into a lot of the bands, or studying about ’em in {a magazine}. If not, you’d go right into a file retailer and go, ‘Oh, have a look at this file. Wow. That appears cool. Let’s put it on. Wow. That is superior.’ And that is the way you came upon new music and the way you bought into bands. Now, in fact, who’s gonna try this? It is by no means gonna occur. So I miss that mystique and that method of the way it was. However that is a factor of the previous, I assume. I assume I am simply joyful to be part of that.”

Paul continued: “I at all times inform individuals I am simply joyful… I obtained fortunate, I suppose. Everybody’s gotta be born once they’re born and I simply occurred to be born in that complete transitional period with metallic… Being a young person proper then at the moment within the early ’80s after which rising with the music and the altering of the scene day by day. Look how a lot change occurred within the metallic scene from ’80 to ’90. It is unbelievable. Or from ’82 to ’85, or ’85 to ’88. And we had been part of that as a hungry teenager that is not even positive what… You are stepping into your bands and never even positive what you are totally into but, since you’re nonetheless getting molded and all. So I really feel very fortunate that I am a part of all that and having these transitions and being part of the motion, so to say. It was an important period to be rising up in. And if it wasn’t for that, CANNIBAL would not be what they’re, and clearly I would not be the drummer I’m and the musician I’m. So every part occurred for a motive and that is the way in which it goes. However, yeah, thrilling occasions. Undoubtedly.”
