One of my highlights of 2006 was interviewing Cannibal Corpse drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz for Hails & Horns, the metal offshoot of AMP magazine. For being in the world’s biggest death metal band, Paul was amazingly gracious and down-to-earth. He candidly answered burning questions I had – was the band being funny with its artwork and song titles? What goes on in a performance video shoot? And, of course, what exactly is a cannibal corpse?

H&H; doesn’t have much of an online presence, so I put up the interview here. Paul’s on the right in the Sadus shirt. Note the textbook use of invisible oranges. Also, dig this clip of the ‘Corpse in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Jim Carrey’s performance is br00tal.
