This track makes me wish the guys could make a power/symphonic metal album one day. It reminds me a little of Rhapsody or Symphony X and the sort, but maybe I'm just losing my mind.

EDIT: At this point, after reading the correct lyrics, I think it's clear this song is about a videogame character going through the motion by obeying to the encoded commands and hating it, and his desire of exiting the program.

And it's awesome as barbeque sauce.

Yes to a Muse power metal album. Definitely think they can pull it off. Technically they do already have a power metal song,even (one with power metal elements,to be more precise)

I think this would have been a better NFL tie in song than Pressure.

Not before they write a prog metal album.

I've said this before and Blockades makes me say it again: Muse + Leprous-collab album. MAKE IT HAPPEN.

And yes the song is sooooooooo good. Probably the best on the album.

The intro sounds like the music from every science video I watched at school .

Also, as I said in the main ST thread, Blockades sounds like Muse covering Octavarium / Systematic Chaos era Dream Theater, which in turn was when Dream Theater openly spoke of being heavily influenced by Muse. There's massive circularity here.





And this one too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_X_WV_5Wynw

That analysis actually makes me like it a lot more.

It's just a really solid track and will no doubt be insanely good live. SOLD!

The first part of the solo really reminds me of Smooth Sailing by QOTSA. It sounds messy and discordant but structured. Almost as if it's purposefully ramshackle.

The outro is so disappointing. It doesn't kick on into anything. It needs to tear into a riff.

And finally a sequel that actually lives up to the original.

So what you’re proposing is that they’re actually all a part of the Weakening Walls cinematic universe

They sound cut very much from the same musical cloth to me, just dressed up in different styles.
