"Civerous, from its inception, was always meant to be a death-doom band," explains bassist Drew Horton. But like their friends Apparition, the Los Angeles band aren't afraid to integrate influences from outside of metal into their cavernous sound.

I spoke with Drew about how a shared love for Spectral Voice shaped the band's sound, and being man enough to listen to pop music. We also discussed why the band learned to trust the suggestions made by producer (and Apparition guitarist) Andrew Solis during the recording of the latest Civerous album Maze Envy, and the role of the bass in Civerous' music.

My thanks again to Drew for speaking with me, and to you for listening.
