TNT: How do you guys go about creating an entirely new piece of work? Tell us about the process.
JG: We pick up any existing issue or cause, mostly environmental and social, and try to visualise how it would sound if developed. It starts with some rough demos in our home studio. Gradually, we improvise and select the best of the demos for taking it to the next level, outlining the traces of the final track. Then it's time to hit the studios for mixing and mastering, making it musically overwhelming to our audience, listeners and fans alike.
TNT: Tell us about your inspiration– Which band inspires you and what were the first bands you may have listened to?
JG: Our inspiration depends on experimenting. We like to experiment and introduce new elements in each of our track. We practice the techniques of slam death metal and we like low tuned guitars, so we pick death core and further develop our music infusing the elements of technical deathcore.
Bands like Cannibal Corpse, Carnifex, Suicide Silence, Aborted, and Dying Fetus inspire us. Initially, we were quite heavily influenced by the legends – Lamb of God, Meshuggah, Gojira, and the likes.
TNT: The beauty of metal music is to be able to vent out frustrations, does the band follow any ideology? If yes, does it influence the band lyrically?
JG: Most of our themes are based on socio-environmental issues that go around in our everyday life. Our lyrics are heavily influenced by themes just like our tracks, viz. Earth's Day, Inglorious Slayer, etc.
Basically, on our part as JG, we wish to inspire people through our socially meaningful lyrics bolstered by our music's ability to influence emotion.
TNT: Why the name 'Jammer's Graveyard'?
JG: Well, not much of an elaborative concept behind that.
We believe, "Musicians die, but their spirit remains." Every day in some remote corner of the earth, a musician dies along with the music in his/her heart, buried in the graveyard. We are the chosen ones to celebrate their music in the graveyard and to jam on their behalf.
TNT: Being musicians, time for oneself is always tied up but when free time to just chill is on the table, how would the members spend it?
JG: We spend our leisure time listening to new sounds/compositions, exploring new music/musical genres, exchanging knowledge and ideas related to music with each other as well as other band members.
TNT: Metal is passion but what are your hobbies outside music? What do you like listening to besides metal?
JG: Besides music, playing football and swimming are two of our favorite past time that we naturally have an affinity with. We also love travelling to places/destinations, Shillong being our ideal hot spot.
