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 are 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.

    Вместо того чтобы как бараны орать что альбом говно, лучше бы включили его как фон разок другой. Именно так мое мнение о нем кардинально изменилось - удалив Mercy и Revolt я получил очень хороший альбом. А Globalist из якобы подобия Citizen Erased превратилась в самостоятельное крепкое произведение, особенно эта смачная середина....

    Omg, очередной высер с рок-ревью (про "рецензию" шестью постами ниже). Вроде и попадаются неплохие обзоры, на которые можно даже ориентироваться в плане стоит/не стоит слушать, но в основном - бездарные статейки с закосом под лурк, лишённые какой-либо внятной аргументации (-_\\

    "И потекли реки бурных выделений к ногам священной коровы, чьи деяния нельзя оценить людскими представлениями. И было это хорошо (Евангелие от Беллами: глава 3, стих 15). Как известно, святое трио Muse под предводительством Мэттью Беллами, да буду я гореть в аду за то что произнес его имя всуе, выпустило в свет новое музыкальное полотно Drones, которое можно сопоставить лишь с трудами мастеров эпохи возрождения. Шучу конечно. Итальянские бездари по сравнению с Muse - ленивые шпалоукладчики. Но не будем заострять на этом внимания. Пластинка Drones начинается с произведения "Dead Inside", которое филигранно воплощает идеи выворачивания наизнанку посредством отрывистого пения на фоне одинокого баса, на который позднее разящей диареей льются потоки гитарного звука..." http://rock-review.ru/reviews/18211-muse-drones.html

    TheSabstinator has gone mental as well. How can Drones be their best when they also made Origin of Symmetry, Showbiz and Absolution :/
