Not too long ago, I was thinking to myself, “why have I never seen an unsigned band brave enough to step into Muse’s territory?” shortly afterwards, Death in Texas contacted me inviting me to photograph one of their gigs.
As someone that adores Muse, their influence was easy to pick up on in Death in Texas’ music. They have put a twist on the style though to keep it their own, and thankfully are in no way trying to become a clone of the legendary 3-man band.
Although Death in Texas’ music has a lot of room for growth, it’s definitely worth checking out. They’re taking on a challenging genre, and that’s something I want to support. You can download their EP for free here, I recommend checking out ‘Dancers’.
On a related note, I’ve pretty much scrapped all work on ‘Abstracted’ so far - I had gotten distracted from what I wanted it to be, and after some research and working out exactly where I want to take it, I’ve been frantically scribbling page-after-page of new ideas. I know that I should just get the ball rolling on it as soon as I can, but I want to make sure that I’ve got the foundations just right before I start building on them.
Death in Texas are another example of the type of band that I want Abstracted to be made for.
