Muse's UFO Stymies Slayer's Reign (In Blood)

Text

Slayer fans who tuned into MTV Europe to watch the band’s performance at Germany’s Rock AM Ring festival this past Saturday night were disappointed to find the station’s signal mysteriously scrambled. The cause? Why, a UFO of course!

According to NME, a UFO stage prop debuted that night by the ethereal rockers of Muse was so epic in size that it put a complete kibosh on MTV Europe’s broadcasting efforts, scrambling the signal during Slayer’s performance.

Muse still plans to use the prop during its headlining stint on the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury on June 26, broadcasters (and thrash metal bands) be damned.
