Muse Cover Deftones Again, Anvil Are Going to ‘Hell’ + More News
While performing in France on Monday night (Oct. 22), Muse covered the Deftones stomper “Headup.” There’s video footage of about 50 seconds of the British band ripping through one of the best songs on the Deftones’ 1997 Around the Fur album below.
In an interview earlier this year, Muse drummer Dom Howard compared dubstep to heavy metal: “We went to see Skrillex and we went, ‘Fuck, it’s so heavy!’ It was like a full metal gig – they had circles of death. People were moshing. I hadn’t seen a reaction like that to electronic music before.”
