Muse Drop Music Video For Their Heaviest Song Yet, Matt Bellamy Says: “With “Kill Or Be Killed” We Found A Modern Metal Sound Featuring Double Bass Drum Action And Even A Death Growl”


English alternative rockers Muse have launched what they are describing as their heaviest track to date. That track, “Kill Or Be Killed“, has debuted online below with an accompanying music video. Vocalist/guitarist, etc. Matt Bellamy commented of it:

“‘Kill Or Be Killed‘ is Muse at their heaviest! We wanted to update our hard rock sound on this album and with ‘Kill Or Be Killed‘ we found a modern metal sound featuring double bass drum action and even a death growl. Lyrically the song takes influence from my favourite Paul McCartney song ‘Live And Let Die‘, a dark take on how life’s adversity can sometimes bring out the worst human instincts to survival at any costs.”
