Muse Release 'Reapers' Lyric Video
(Radio.com) Muse is sticking close to the theme of the band's new album, Drones, with the lyric video for the song "Reapers." The raucous and rapid-fire track opens with some impressive guitar finger-tapping action from frontman/ax-slinger Matt Bellamy, going on to showcase a seemingly endless series of head-banging riffs throughout the tune. The band's musical prowess is on full display here, and should go a long way in exciting fans of their sonic dexterity side.
The clip finds Bellamy staring down the camera while aggressively emoting the lyrics, juxtaposed with the concept album's protagonist being ruthlessly pursued by drones in an apocalyptic landscape that looks much like a video game virtual reality.
The video's twist is that the drone is being controlled by a beautiful woman (we won't make any assumptions to it being analogous to Bellamy's highly-publicized breakup with actress Kate Hudson). Watch the clip here.
