DEITY’S MUSE Emerge From The Shadows In This Exclusive Guitar Playthrough For “Still In Hiding”

Hailing all the way from South Africa, alternative rock 4-piece Deity’s Muse are here with a brand new dual-guitar playthrough for their track “Still In Hiding”! The track comes off their 2019 EP Lungs Full, and features guitarists Wayne Boucher and Kyle Engelsman tearing it up in this groove-driven and melodic banger. If you’re a fan of bands like Tool and Intronaut, this jam is definitely going to be up your alley. Check it!

About the track, the dudes had this to say:

“Kyle Engelsman’s chunky riffing sets the tone for the song throughout with some tasteful hammer-ons, pull-offs, and triplets. Wayne Boucher’s approach adds the melody with a combination of a pitch-shifter, a chorus effect, and some delays to create a dream-like, spacey push and pull style lead part in the verses very much inspired by Alice in Chains and Tesseract. The roles reverse though as the bridge arrives at 2:43 when Wayne takes up the rhythm duties and Kyle supplies the ambiance in the form of a lead part with some delays and reverb. We didn’t want to have a typical sounding breakdown part after the bridge, so we’ve “progged it up” with Wayne’s eastern influenced lead part layered over the top of this short piece. Wayne’s lead part over the two choruses loosely follows the lead vocal adding an extra layer of movement and harmony.”
