The bluesy, psychedelic sound of North Carolina's Crystal Spiders hearkens back to metal's primordial era, before the genre became defined by speed for its own sake.

I spoke with bassist/vocalist Brenna Leath and drummer Tradd Yancey about the early days of Crystal Spiders, and how Brenna achieves her unique bass sound. We also talked about how writing songs is like making cupcakes, and working with Corrosion of Conformity's Mike Dean on the band's second album, Morieris.

My thanks to Brenna and Tradd for speaking with me, and to all of you for listening.
