They are a unique blend of genres such as progressive rock, alternative rock, electronic, and classical music. They are known for their grandiose and epic sound, which is characterized by soaring guitar riffs, intricate piano melodies, thunderous bass lines, and explosive drumming.
The band’s music often features complex arrangements, unexpected shifts in tempo and time signature, and a wide range of vocal styles from lead singer and guitarist Matt Bellamy. The lyrics are often political and dystopian, exploring themes such as government corruption, technological advancement, and the human condition.
One of the defining features of Muse’s music is their use of electronic and experimental sounds, which they often incorporate into their rock sound. They have been known to use synthesizers, orchestral arrangements, and other effects to create a futuristic and otherworldly atmosphere in their music.
Muse’s music is characterized by its ambition and grandeur, combining rock with classical and electronic elements to create a unique and innovative sound.
