Mutiny Within "Mutiny Within"

The Roadrunner Records self titled debut of central NJ band Mutiny Within has been out since February and these guys have been touring pretty heavily in support of it. This band took what started out as a Children of Bodom tribute band and turned it around into an original-song-writing monster. Mutiny Within showcases the band's ability to take from their influences while maintaining an independent sense of self. Blending both clean and growling vocals into a mixture of Melodic Metal and old-school Thrash this is the breath of fresh air the Metal scene has been waiting for. The music is so strong that vocalist Chris Clancy actually relocated from the UK to the states just to be a part of the band. If that doesn't show self esteem and determination, I don't know what does.

If you are looking for some powerful Thrash with a taste of Progressive Metal, then Mutiny Within is the band for you. Standout tracks include the album opener "Awake" as well as "Images," "Year of Affliction," and "Lethean."

Rating: 4/5
