Metal maestro talks about his genre-defying friendship with the Wooten brothers, Flea’s influence and more
Exclusive video interview with FBPO’s Jon Liebman

Evan Brewer has been the man behind the bass barrage for a slew of hard-hitting modern metal bands, distinguishing himself with technical virtuosity and an adventurous musical sensibility. Perhaps best known for his work with the metal/hardcore outfit Animosity and the more technically oriented death metal ensemble The Faceless, Brewer currently holds down the low notes for Entheos, a prog-tinged death metal quartet fronted by Chaney Crabb.
On the metal front, he’s also played in the metalcore group Reflux alongside Nigerian-American guitarist Tosin Abasi and vocalist (and Sumerian Records CEO) Ash Avildsen. But Brewer’s also spent his energies on music of a less metallic nature like his more melody focused rock side project Climaxes, which features Enthos drummer Navene Koperweis and singer Barry Donegan of Look What I Did. He’s also released two solo instrumental recordings, the all-bass album Alone and Your Itinerary, which features a mix of bass, drums, keyboards and electronic sounds.
At this year’s summer NAMM in Nashville, Brewer spoke with FBPO’s Jon Liebman about growing up amidst the Nashville music scene, his friendship with Regi and Victor Wooten, Antheos’ new album and other topics.
