Interview with Paul Speckmann
Conducted by: Carlos M. Llanas
If you ever listened to Master or Abomination, chances are you know about the mastermind behind it all, Paul Speckmann. Born in Chicago, Illinois, Speckmann spent his time writing and performing all through the 80’s and continues to play shows today. Sure, he toured with Master and released some killer albums, but before Master’s reunion there was something else…something wicked…something relentless. I’m talking about Death Strike of course. As vicious as it is raw, Death Strike’s "Fuckin’ Death" was the kind of album that you heard and immediately thought "What the fuck? This is wild!" and that’s exactly what it was; A wild ride from a genre of metal unheard of for that time. Paul was kind enough to share a few words with Metal-Rules.com and we were more than happy to have him. Here he is…Paul Speckmann.
