DEVIL'S ISLAND featuring CRS
Welcome to this weeks edition of Devil's Island! Every week we maroon a band or artist on the island and see what they get up to, how they cope with being all alone on a small island in the middle of the ocean. It's not your average desert island and we'll see just how each person copes with the extreme conditions.
This week when we arrived at Devil's Island we found Francisco of Mexian technical death metal outfit CRS sat on the beach. The island is far from their base, so how did he end up here and how did he 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 chose one album that you couldn't live without. Which album did you each chose and why?
Destroy, Erase, Improve by Meshuggah. Great songs, dynamics, sometimes really aggressive, sometimes very melodic. I could easily say it’s my favorite all time album.
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?
Arise by Sepultura. Love the art, very metal but at the same time not a metal cliché.
There's also a bar on this here island. But alas each of you only get to choose one drink for the entirety of your stay. What's your tipple of choice?
Easy: Beer. If it’s craft beer even better. CRS it’s an abbreviation of Cirrosis (the liver disease) and our band it’s not called that for nothing!
Your suitcases were lost when your ship sank, but you each managed to salvage one item of band merch. What’s the merch and for what band?
I’d say Slayer’s Root Of All Evil t-shirt
You’re sat on the island thinking “I’m stuck here on this island with my bandmates for eternity”… who would you rather have been shipwrecked with?
If I’m gonna be there for eternity then with Alissa White-Gluz from Arch Enemy.
There's a walkman in your pocket, on the tape inside is the recording of the one live show that stands out for you. It could be any show, from any band, anywhere in the world. What show is on that walkman?
G3: Live In Concert with Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Eric Johnson.
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 most suitable for a rescue attempt. Who is it?
You've been stuck here for a while and food supplies are running low. There's only one thing for it... which fellow band member gets sacrificed to help the others survive?
Wow, I really don’t know. Maybe have the same faith for everybody and die of starvation.
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?
