'Dubstep Is New Metal', Say Muse
Muse recorded a dubstep track and maybe two for upcoming album "The 2nd Law" after seeing leading light Skrillex perform a live show. And they say the experience proved to them that dubstep is the new heavy metal. Skrillex previously turned Korn onto the possibilities of the genre, resulting in their album "The Path Of Totality" although they say their next release will go back to their analogue roots. Meanwhile, Muse have followed them down the experimental path, which they'll reveal in "The 2nd Law: Unsustainable", the penultimate track on their next record. Frontman Matt Bellamy tells NME: "That stuff is capturing the imagination. The moshpit has moved from guitars and gone towards the laptop. With the song we're trying to see if we can challenge the laptop. "We created something that's dubsteppy, but we wanted to see if we could do it with real instruments. We wanted to ask, 'Can rock bands compete with what these guys are doing?'" Drummer Dom Howard reports: "We went to see Skrillex and we went, 'F--k, it's so heavy!' It was like a full metal gig they had circles of death. People were moshing. I hadn't seen a reaction like that to electronic music before. We took inspiration and came up with 'The 2nd Law: Unsustainable'." The band add that fans can expect a "jazzy brass number" and some "quite minimal" songs too. The 13-track album is due out on September 17. Tracklisting: 01. Supremacy 02. Madness 03. Panic Station 04. Prelude 05. Survival 06. Follow Me 07. Animals 08. Explorers 09. Big Freeze 10. Save Me 11. Liquid State 12. The 2nd Law: Unsustainable 13. The 2nd Law: Isolated System Thanks for the report to ClassicRockMagazine.com.
