CANNIBAL CORPSE MMROC Interview Featured At Blabbermouth !

In a new interview with the   "Metal Mayhem"   podcast,   CANNIBAL CORPSE   drummer and founding member   Paul Mazurkiewicz   was asked if he takes it as a compliment when his band is referred to as the " MOTÖRHEAD   of death metal," as was the case in a recent review in the U.K. magazine   Kerrang!   He responded (as transcribed by   BLABBERMOUTH.NET ): "I totally take it as a compliment. Because you get what you get; when you're gonna listen to   CANNIBAL CORPSE , you're gonna buy a new record, you know what you're getting. There's gonna be no second guessing; there's gonna be no, 'Oh, I wonder what they're gonna… Is it gonna sound like this?' Because so many bands have done that in the past.

"We're being ourselves," he continued. "We're not being anybody else. We're playing   CANNIBAL CORPSE   music for ourselves and we're staying true to ourselves. And I know the fans, of course, over the years, have come to understand that and to rely on us, to know what they're gonna get. They don't have to worry that, 'Oh my gosh. What are the gonna do? Are they gonna start having clean vocals?' or whatever. It's, like, no. It's gonna be   CANNIBAL CORPSE . That's what you're gonna get. So I totally take that as a compliment.

"The other one we always hear, and that's a major compliment… If you're gonna be put in the same sentence with bands like   MOTÖRHEAD … I mean, those are legendary bands, of course,"   Paul   added. "Or we always hear we're the   AC/DC   of death metal — kind of the same thing. There you go —   AC/DC   was   AC/DC ; they weren't anybody else. They weren't trying to be anybody else. They were   AC/DC ; you know what you're getting.

"To hear those phrases and comparisons like that, it's a complete compliment," he repeated. "And that's what we're going for, man — we've gotta be   CANNIBAL CORPSE   until the end. That's just the way it is."

CANNIBAL CORPSE 's 15th studio album,   "Violence Unimagined" , was released in April 2021 via   Metal Blade Records .   Erik Rutan , one of the death metal's most acclaimed guitarists who is known for his time as part of   MORBID ANGEL   throughout the '90s and early 2000s, as well as handling vocals/guitars for   HATE ETERNAL , lent his guitar as well as production skills to the effort, which was recorded at his   Mana Recording   in St. Petersburg, Florida.   Rutan   previously produced four   CANNIBAL CORPSE   albums (in addition to   "Violence Unimagined" ), alongside the likes of   GOATWHORE ,   SOILENT GREEN   and   BELPHEGOR . Filling in live on guitar since 2019, in 2020 he became a full member, contributing to the writing process.
