Guild Theory's Latest Single Melds the Essence of TOOL and MUSE into a Melodic Rock Masterpiece

Guild Theory have created a sound that calls. ‘Indignant Swines’ is a single that plays with the conventions of rock and breaks into the new day with a powerful and open-armed stride. The single picks tones and colours with precision. Each instrument meets its melody perfectly, there is a musical synergy that swims about the sounds of the track, keeping us entranced. Once the flying banner of sound falls, the vocals pick it back up. There, they begin to sing. They cut through the guitars, the bass, the clack of the drums. Clean, calm, powerful. Once they start you never want them to stop. They call, they fall, they round into a chorus and charge.


‘Indignant Swines’ picks up the essences of TOOL and MUSE and blends them together. You get the creativity and musical prowess of TOOL, but none of the confusion. Guild Theory have taken a heavier weight and placed it on melody. The MUSE angle comes from this melodic streak and its dependence on vocals. They really drive the track home and without them, we’d be lost. The single is pared down to the bone. It is showing us its efficient essentials and it’s because of that it hits so hard. Each beat, each strum, each bass note, each vocal line — has to be there. It’s a maximalist track formed from minimalist desires.

Once the flow of the song swings one way and back, you’re hooked. There’s a presence to Guild Theory that sets them apart from the norm, even in the indie-sphere. There’s a wealth of texture, a font of musical knowledge, and an adept understanding of musical structure. ‘Indignant Swines’ feels like something a much larger band would put out. A penny isn’t dropped, a note never missed, a prolific and succinct hit of prog rock goodness.
