The Muse band was founded in 1994 in Teignmouth, southwest England, when schoolmates Matthew Bellamy, Christopher Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard came together. The band was also brought to the attention of a wider audience thanks to the single Neutron Star Collision, which became the core piece of the soundtrack for the film Twilight (third part of the Twilight saga). The band has received two Brit Awards, one Grammy, the American Music Award, four Kerrang!, nine NME Awards and countless local MTV prizes.
Muse seeks inspiration not only in classical music but also in music icons such as U2, Radiohead, Queen or David Bowie. In the band’s tracks elements of several rock varieties can be found – from alternative to glam, new progressive, space, symphonic and progressive metal, back to indie – blending together with electronic music elements into a surprisingly harmonious mix.
