Do you want to introduce yourself?
Paul Masvidal: Paul Masvidal
climbing inside the eyelash of a distant fear
Götz: What's that?
Paul: That's just a way of explaining
my moment I guess.
Skot Carino: Skot Carino, bass
fishing is God.
Sean Reinert: Sean Reinert, drums and
Chuck Schuldiner: Chuck Schuldiner, psychotic monster.
Götz: Okay, I think
maybe we get the inconvenient stuff out of the way first.
Götz: So okay, lets
talk about the European disaster right?
Götz: So why didn't
you make it to Europe. What is the reason behind it?
Chuck: Well, there's many reasons,
some personal, some not. There were a lot of stressful things
going on in my life at the time. I felt like I needed to
get away and look at things from a different perspective,
and unfortunately at a very inconvenient time. It made me
look really bad, which I understand, you know, why people
would think bad things. But, you know, I had to do what
I had to do, for certain reasons. It improved my outlook
on life in a lot of ways, I learned a lot from the mistakes
that I might have made. But, you know, I feel everything
happened for a purpose, and all I can do is say I'm looking
forward making it to Europe finally, and I hope people show
up [all laughing] and you know, support the music, and you
know, that's about it.
Götz: You know that
a lot of people are fed up with the band right now. In Germany
there're a lot of people pissed off. So you've got to win
them back somehow.
Chuck: Sure, I think it comes down
to the music, and the people who were disappointed they're
gonna hear an album that I think might change their mind
about me and the band in general. I think people should
buy music, should buy records and support bands for the
Götz: Talking about
statements, talking about rumors. One of them was that you're
not into this death metal thing at all anymore, and that
you wanted to do different music. That's what the guys of
Massacre for example told us. So I've listened to the new
record and that's not so different to me, so, how do they
come up with something like that
Chuck: I don't know, I think that
there're people who are desperate to ruin my name because
I did things that upset them. I really, you know, can't
help what I had to do at that certain point in my life.
Obviously I, we had the album coming out despite what people
might have said, you know. I'm not a bad person, whatever
people wanna say I'm
play rock then I'm,
whatever, I'll be more than happy to prove them wrong.
I think the new Death record is the most solid, and utmost
overall covering every edge on Chuck's
like what he
would like to interpret the music as we finally hear it
at its monumental statement.
Götz: Last question,
most important of all. Will this band make it to Europe
Götz: You're sure?
Götz: What if not?
Chuck: I'll come back in another life
as an acorn and that would suck seriously. No this is a
serious thing. I mean, you know, I know people are thinking
well he's insane and he's not gonna show up. That's not
the fact. I don't care what people said about me in Europe,
how supposedly I don't care about my fans, I'm playing in
a pussy rock band. That's bullshit. I'm out to prove people
wrong. The album proved people wrong. I care about people,
obviously the people who buy our albums, if I didn't care
about these people then I'd be nowhere. I'd still be whatever
in the garage, yeah, you know, I would have died out a long
time ago. I appreciate what people do for me, I appreciate
any help I ever get, I appreciate people's support, and
whatever, you know. We'll be in Europe, people need to come
out, yeah, real soon, the album's coming out on October
8, hopefully we're alive at the same time, so whatever,
you know, we'll be there, we're there to put on a good show,
and I'll be more then happy to speak with anybody, you know,
that have any questions.
