DEVIL'S ISLAND featuring Eye of the Destroyer
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 find New Jersey hardcore/death metallers Eye of the Destroyer sat on the beach. The island is far from their home, so how did they end up here and 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 chose one album that you couldn't live without. Which album did you each chose and why?
I chose Paul McCartney's Ram because you didn't expect that to be my answer and it's the least metal album of all time. It's also coincidentally my favourite fucking album of all time.
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?
Kaufman chooses a poster of Pantera. This way when it gets cold and dark he can stare at Phil and remember how much he loves him. Joe chooses Slipknot. Mainly cause it's fucking Slipknot.
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?
All whiskey all day. I could go further and show you how much of a fucking whiskey snob I have become but I will spare you the bullshit and just get done to business.
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?
Suburban Scum ski mask.
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?
Literally fucking anyone else. Please kill me.
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?
Tattoo the Earth. Could be Slipknot, Mudvayne or Hatebreed's set. Im good with all three for eternity if necessary.
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?
I send a message to Chris Jericho and request he picks me up on his rocking rager!
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?
Kaufman dies and we eat him.
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?
I saved Corey Taylor. Corey Motherfucking Taylor!
