Mutiny Within

Mutiny Within is a Metalcore/melodic death metal band from Edison, New Jersey, United States formed in 2002. Influenced by bands such as Symphony X and Dream Theater as well as Euro-shredders including Soilwork and Children of Bodom. They evolved over the following years, started recording demos and gigging locally with national acts including 3 Inches of Blood and Symphony X. They has opened for bands such as Seven Witches, W.A.S.P., Carnivore, Seventh Void and Danzig.

After several frontman, they find their way with former With Intent vocalist Chris Clancy, which got them a deal with Roadrunner Records. “Keep it heavy, keep it fast and keep it clever. Never pace to anything. It is an active record.” That’s how bassist Andrew “AJ” Jacobs, the sole founding member, effectively encapsulated what the band and their self-titled debut are about. The resulting album, Mutiny Within, is the culmination of years of figuring it out, getting it together and finally making it work and it’s all manifested in an album that is almost shocking in its technical prowess and its use of melody amid maelstrom. In early 2010, the band will support Arch Enemy in its Tyrant of Evil headlining tour along with Arsis.
