Alternative rockers DEITY’S MUSE give me happiness each time they break out of the limiting South Africa scene. Their recent successes wouldn’t have happened unless they’d the passion to stay together longer than their local counterparts. Talent needs balls too. I’m not kidding. Most of the bands I loved are long dead. But DEITY’S MUSE keeps staying alive for me – hey, I can pretend!
It says something about DEITY’S MUSE that bands of varying genres want to perform with them. They’ve supported notables Seether and 36 Crazyfists but it’s their more recent associations that interest me most. TesseracT is is good example. Not long ago, they joined Jinjer, those astounding prog metallers from the Ukraine.
‘LUNGS FULL’ E.P.
Next month, DEITY’S MUSE head back to the UK. They’re supporting Monument on their latest tour. As a precursor, they’ve delivered something different to the menace of songs such as ‘Broken Scar’ or the pummeling of ‘Ten Years’. With the ‘Lungs Full’ E.P., DEITY’S MUSE has kept the grooves but gone melodic… in a good way. If this is what they sound like when they’re sleeping, then they’ve become my 24-hr band.
‘Sleep Escape’ is my favourite track. And I love the cover art!
