Assassin (Grand Omega Bosses Edit) Confusion

I was listening to Assassin (Grand Omega Bosses Edit) and during the part after 2:29 I noticed the riff playing just seems very similer to one in another song but I just can't figure out what it is. Or I just could be wrong/delusional. Can any of you tell what I'm thinking I hear?

I think that might be it, because this is confusing me. I'm pretty sure it was a Muse song too. *Goes and check*

 

Yeah that's it. Thanks, you saved me ages going through my Muse library :LOL::)

I'm sorry (and sorry to bump), but that's not alike at all, and even with my best good will can I see that. The only thing you could have found alike, was that at a certain point a more Arab-ish scale was used. Most Arab songs sound alike to me, but not this :rolleyes:

 

On-topic: Was "Grand Omega Bosses edit" done by Muse themselves? I like the intro much more because of the distorted <something>, and it makes me like the song much more in general.

From MuseWiki:

 

It was reported that an extended version of "Assassin" was to be the B-Side for the "Knights of Cydonia" single on the offical Muse site.[15] This was later clarified to be for B-Side to the vinyl and non-preordered digital formats, and that the name of it is "Grand Omega Bosses edit".[16] Grand Omega Bosses is an anagram for 'Debase Masons Grog', or 'Message Board Song', a former title during the 2005 cryptography game,[6] used to signify the then-untitled, extended version of "Assassin" on a set list. This version reinserts the interlude and lyrics featured in the 2005 live version, as well as adding a piano part during said interlude.

The "Grand Omega Bosses edit" adds some depth to the interpretation of the song. Instead of one resisting alongside others (as in "join forces underground"), the importance of taking action before the isolation of resistance can be overcome is strengthened in the lyrics of the bridge (see "You're not alone / But you must actualise / The first attack"). Whilst at 3:11 Bellamy can be heard saying 'Go!' in the album version, this was removed on the "Grand Omega Bosses edit".

The piano part within the 'Debase' interlude was added prior to the shortening of the song, rather than afterwards. Costey revealed that the band had been planning to release the "Grand Omega Bosses edit" for some time prior to its release.

 

 

This doesn't actually answer your question, but it tells a lit more about the Grand Omega Bosses edit.
