Remember Mutiny Within? The NJ band’s first album was on Roadrunner Records, and while that was their only record for the label, they continued on, releasing Synchronicity in 2013. Now the band have announced a third album, Origins, that will be released on February 10th. Yesterday, they released a song from the forthcoming album, “Archetype of Destruction.” It’s got a Soilwork meets Dragonforce vibe, and is pretty catchy on first listen. Here’s what bassist Andrew Jacobs says about Origins:
“At the end of last year, we found some old demos we thought had been lost, which led to a discussion about putting together an EP. We planned on releasing the demos along with a couple of new songs but once we got started, we had more and more ideas for new songs and the plan quickly evolved into making an EP of brand new tracks. Our fans have stuck by us through so much and as we kept working we felt we were selling them short with just an EP, so we pushed on and turned it into a full album. We’ve now been in the studio for almost a year and have put together what we think are our best songs to date. It’s Mutiny Within but evolved, more extreme, longer songs, but still with everything that made people excited about us. My favorite part; it’s all real. The drums, the vocals, the shred, and most of all, the passion we’ve always had for our music…we tried to capture the energy as if we were on stage and we’ve done that. We’re so excited about the results and have no plans on stopping now. We owe our fans everything and we hope they continue to enjoy listening to us for a long time to come.”
The album will be available digitally on February 10th, and there will be a limited number of physical CD’s as well. You can preorder the album here.
