Not exactly tech or death though... The rhythms on Muse's chord work is usually quite basic, although the chords can be more unusual.

They need to tour with Porcupine Tree so that everyone is like "Oh, my that supporting band is better than Muse" and then Porcupine Tree will be doing pretty well... Matt will decide it is time to revert to the ultra-brootz metal and all will be as it should.

Only problem with this is PT being on hiatus atm... but I'm sure Stevo can shrug off his solo work for a bit, no?

I dunno, seems like Steven Wilson has his head so far up 70s prog's collective rear end that he's forgotten all about PT

^ I for one don't mind, as his solo work has been consistently great so far. I'm sure PT will get back together before too long though.

Most of Muse's bass parts are pretty straightforward. The only ones I'd have issues with are the ones where it's straight sixteenth notes for most of the song, since I don't have very good endurance.

Muse is pretty basic bass wise.

They have some really fun songs though. The bass usually isn't boring

True. One of the things I like about them is that the bass is always dancing.

Yea, songs like Plug in Baby, New Born, Starlight, and Hysteria are fun because of that, and the bass really leads the song

The bassline for Hysteria is one of the sexiest ever written.

The bassline to Futurism is even sexier.

Hmm, maybe so. Futurism has always sounded to me like a glorious mash-up of all the best bits from their best songs, TBH. Yeah, the bassline in definitely at least on par with Hysteria's.

It's still T2L era so it's too early to say.

I saw one of those fan made videos that combines several clips of their Manchester gig and I thought it looked like a great show but it's basically The Resistance tour part two with dumber set list choices (Starlight is not an encore song, Survival should be last instead of Knights of Cydonia, and there should just be Madness; Madness and Undisclosed Desires in the same set is a bit disappointing in my opinion).

BRITs opening was epic. Almost a disservice to allow them to put on that spectacle of lights and music then give best live act to someone else.

This thread is falling unusually low in the rock forum. Time to bump... Any of you Musers gotten into any other bands recently? Just got into BTBAM myself.


That EP cover's just so pretty.

^ That is a nice cover, but I've never been a huge fan of them. The vocals are pretty poor, and the music's all over the place. Lately, I've been getting more into NIN, Anathema, Soundgarden, shoegazing, and some math rock stuff.

I wouldn't say the vocals were poor (or particularly amazing) but I suppose their music can be a little all over the place, but I guess I kinda like that.

I have been listening to Anathema's Pentecost III a lot recently (their best release btw )
