Mutiny Within - Synchronicity (2013)
This is probably some of the best metalcore I've heard in a while (not that I'm a huge fan of the genre in the first place.) It's not very progressive compared to the band's first album, but if you're looking for straight-ahead, catchy stuff then this album is for you. Some of the songs are fairly samey though which detracts from the album and makes me not want to listen to the whole thing, but the talent here is undeniable. Chris Clancy is an absolutely phenomenal singer and growler. That's the main thing that sets this album apart from the rest. I don't plan on reviewing many more metalcore albums this year (apart from the upcoming Killswitch and Trivium records), but as this album proves there is hope for the genre.
