ANDERS: I would have to say it’s very
humbing. I dont really look at myself like that. I
am just a part of a bigger scene and just trying
to carve out my own place, but it’s a good place
to be in. I always feel like we are the underdogs,
so i’m never taking anything for granted. We are
always trying to build things up, but this time,
I’m not leaving again that’s for sure. There’s
a different attitude. I learned a lot by being in
other famous bands as well as being in my own.
You learn the do’s and don’ts to become more of
the perfect person.
How much did meeting Dirk
in 2014 influence you on
bringing Cadaver back?
ANDERS: It was something I had been
thinking about. One key obstacle was to find the
right musical partner and the right drummer.
I thought Necrosis’ music is so drum driven and
how good the drummer was. If you have one of
the best drummers in the world then you can
have one of the best bands in the world and it’s
that easy and that difficult, so to speak. I have
been very fortunate to work with amazing mu-
sicians all my life. My threshold for thinking
something is great may be higher than oth-
ers. That’s why I never take light on anything.
I always like to be ahead of the curve so to speak,
and him being an old fan of the music and being
one of the best drummers in the world and want-
ing to play with me, is just a phenomenal mix.
I just couldn’t walk away from it because sud-
denly it all made sense. (Continued on next
