REVOLVER Which part of “Vertigo” did you come up with first? And what was the inspiration?
EVAN BREWER
Like most songs I make, this track just started with the first riff and kind OF went from there. I never really go into a writing process with a specific intent or inspiration. It’s really undefined and random….whatever happens just kinda happens.

Was this an easy song to write?
The song was easy to write, but quite difficult to record. I don’t really force a writing process so all my music comes out fairly smooth. Getting  the ideas to translate to tape is not always simple especially when the ideas are complex.

What do you like about playing instrumental music?
People tend to naturally gravitate towards the vocals, so not having a singer forces people to examine more deeply the details of the instruments. I like that.

What is your favorite metal instrumental?
Probably the Animals as Leaders album. It’s just right up my alley.
