Mazurkiewicz was born on Sept. 8, 1968, meaning his teenage years spanned from Sept. 8, 1981 to Sept. 7, 1988.

What a time to be a teenager, huh? The drummer's formative years aligned right with the emergence of heavy metal and the several branches it quickly sprouted as new and exciting forms of metal were molded.

While Mazurkiewcz's musical career has been centered around brutal music, the stuff he was obsessing over pre-dates extremity in metal, right until the mid-'80s as more aggressive forms of thrash sprung up. Naturally, this fed directly into Cannibal Corpse's sound as they too pioneered a subgenre of metal.
