Amazing debut from Mutiny Within. It's prog metal, but all of the songs typically stay in the 3 to 4 minute area. Vocalist Chris Clancy has a great voice, and while he doesn't scream a whole lot (exception here on the fantastic Lethean) when he does it sounds great. Highlights from the album are the single Awake, Falling Forever, and Year Of Affliction.
#4 Memphis May Fire - Between The Lies
OK, so it's really an EP and not an album, whatever, IT'S AWESOME. The band loses some of their southern hardcore roots, and I thought I would have a problem with that, but this is still a very solid EP. Matt Mullins' voice sounds great as always, but his scream has also become much more developed and versatile. Highlights from the EP are Action/Adventure with it's way too catchy for it's own good chorus…
