Biography

Teignmouth, England, United Kingdom (1994 – present)

Muse are an alternative rock band from Teignmouth, England, United Kingdom. The band consists of Matthew Bellamy on lead vocals, piano, keyboard and guitar, Chris Wolstenholme on backing vocals and bass guitar, and Dominic Howard on drums and percussion.

They have been friends since their formation in early 1994 and changed band names a number of times (such as Gothic Plague, Fixed Penalty, and Rocket Baby Dolls) before adopting the name Muse. Since the release of their fourth album, Morgan Nicholls has also appeared with the band at live performances to provide keyboards, samples/synth, and backing vocals.

Their sound is a blend of , music, , , spanish guitars, and . Usually they use the bass line as the driving force, often with the guitar providing only an extra layer to the song rather than carrying the melody, the bass has distortion and other effects applied to it to achieve a greater weight, allowing the guitar to digress from the main tune and play higher notes. Another peculiarity is Muse´s piano style in many of their songs; their music has been inspired by the works of Romantic pianist-composers such as Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky and Liszt, and has thus resulted in a fusion of Romantic style with modern rock.

The band is known for their energetic live performances and front man Matthew Bellamy’s eccentric and avid interests in global conspiracy, extraterrestrial life, theology and the apocalypse (as much as in Space and theoretical physics). Their lyrical themes involve madcap conspiracy theory, revolutionary rabble-rousing, weird stuff about aliens (or Zetas, if you please), religions and other such classic Muse concerns.

    o fato deles não tocarem "a do Crepúsculo" já tornaria o show foda, que dirá com Bliss, Fury e um cover do Nirvana. Vocês curtem reclamar de barriga cheia mesmo, eu hein.

    Chororô de poser é difícil de aturar. O show foi PERFEITO, lidem com isso. Quem é fã mesmo se emocionou e tudo mais com o setlist. Ouvi gente reclamando das músicas não serem conhecidas, de não ter tocado “aquela do Crepúsculo” (Supermassive Black Hole, obviamente), da voz, do show ter sido mediano... tudo falta do que falar. Fiquei na grade o dia inteiro, perdi shows que eu queria ver como Nine Inch Nails, Nação Zumbi e Lorde pra não perder o show e digo que valeu MUITO a pena. Pra quem não estava com a voz 100%, esse show foi muito mais do que “bom”. só faço é rir desse povo que esperava que o cara com laringite ia mandar uns guturais fuderosos kkkkk [10]
