Muse Going All Dubsteppy On New Album?

Images-3Just picked up a tweet from my main man @SchweppsRocka with the trailer for Muse’s album (The 2nd Law) that lands in Sept and I must say I’m… confused.

If the album trailer is anything to go by, then Muse have made the questionable decision to embrace dubstep with their new material which is already polarising fans left right and centre.

I thought we learned from the pile of shit that was Korn’s recent dubstep album, The Path Of Totality that rock bands need to avoid dubstep like the goddamn plague, but no. Apparently Muse missed that memo…

Here’s the vid:



Of course, at this stage, it’s all just speculation. Muse have been pretty hush-hush on how the new album will sound, the only quote I’ve read so far was the bassist Chris Wolstenholme saying they want to do something “radically different” on their new album.

Muse, more than any band that comes to mind right now, are probably the only guys that might actually be able to pull off a rock / dubstep album but still, it’s a huge gamble.

And I’m sorry, but the whole post-apocalyptic, “we’re destroying the planet” angle they’re going for with this clip reminds me of one thing and only one thing.



For their sake I hope this doesn’t end in WUB-WUB-fuelled disaster.
