Muse talk about the dubstep influence on their new record, The 2nd Law, to The Sun:
“I’d been to see Skrillex and so had this idea. The thing about dubstep is it’s really heavy. When it really kicks and the bass drops, it’s like heavy metal with these big build-ups and a big riff that kicks in.”
“A lot of people were sceptical about it but it works.”
Here’s the song they’re talking about, which starts like the opening montage of a Michael Bay movie – before DAT DROP.
