DEVIL’S ISLAND featuring Jinjer

Devil's Island featuring Roman of Jinjer.

We're back on our tropical desert island, in the middle of the ocean, hundreds of miles from anywhere. This is Devil's Island! Every week we maroon a band on the island and see what they get up to. It's not your average desert island and we'll see just how each band copes with the extreme conditions.

This week when we arrived at Devil's Island we found Roman from Ukranian metalers Jinjer, sat on the beach. We had not seen him for a while, we thought he was lost, search parties had found no trace! But now we've found him shipwrecked on our island!

How did they cope with life on Devil's Island? Find out now...

Welcome to The Razors'e Edge and our somewhat lovely, warm desert island. Don't worry about it's name I'm sure it's not as bad as that would suggest.

So you're marooned here on this island, but before you ended up shipwrecked you each chose one album that you couldn't live without. Which album did you each chose and why?

Roman: It's a difficult question. I think maybe not metal music, some relaxing music maybe. I don't know. Okay, okay... it will be System of a Down - Toxicity.

Just behind that palm tree is a shack for each of you to stay in, with enough space for you to put up a poster on the wall of one album cover. What album cover do you each chose?

Roman: For me I don't remember album covers, I don;t buy a lot of CD's or tapes. Maybe Limp Bizkit - Significant Other. It was graffiti style, it was cool.

There's also a bar on this here island. But alas each of you only get to chose one drink for the entirety of your stay. What's your tipple of choice?

Roman: Beer, just beer. [Laughs]

Your suitcases were lost when your ship sank, but you each managed to salvage one item of band merch. Whats the merch and for what band?

Roman: Merch, merch, merch.... I don't really wear merch. Maybe local bands I play with that I've bought on the merch table. I know, I have this Slipknot long sleeve. Let's say that.

You're getting desperate, you decide the only course of action is to put a message in a bottle and hope someone finds it. Your message could be to any member of any band, but should be the one musician most suitable for a rescue attempt. Who is it? 

Roman: Woah! I think B-Real from Cypress Hill. I love Cypress Hill and it would be cool for him to rescue me from the island.

Finally, when the ship sank you each managed to save one person from the wreckage. That person is the one musician that has influenced your career the most, shaped your way of thinking and your outlook on life. Who did you save?

Roman: Dimebag Darrell. He had a big influence on my playing. Also maybe Wes Borland.

We hope you make it off the island soon.
