New Jersey-based quintet MUTINY WITHIN (formerly MUTINY) will hit Bieler Bros. Studios in Pompano Beach, Florida this coming Monday (April 6) with producer Jason Bieler (SIKTH, SKINDRED, DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL, NONPOINT) to resume recording its debut album for a late 2009 release through Roadrunner Records.
The initial sessions for the CD took place at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida with producer Jason Suecof, who has previously worked with ALL THAT REMAINS, GOD FORBID, TRIVIUM and DEVILDRIVER, among many others.
Commented Bieler: "I haven't really been inspired to produce many bands recently. After working with bands like SIKTH and SKINDRED with Matt LaPlant (our main producer/engineer at Bieler Bros. Records) you get spoiled. I also get bored really easily, especially with faceless instrument owners with record deals and no talent. Quite frankly, I would rather be playing hockey and have my head driven through the boards than sit through a session like that! Long story short, I have turned down project after project. Fortunately, Bieler Bros.' success allows me to pick and choose what I work on. My friends at Roadrunner called me and sent me some demos, and lo and behold, I was blown away! MUTINY WITHIN shred from top to bottom and have a vast, expansive sense of melody. They also have a unyielding work ethic... an unbeatable combination in my opinion. It is going to be great to work on a record that our friend Suecof worked on. There are few more metallic dudes on the planet! This is going to be an epic record and it all starts on Monday."
Four of MUTINY WITHIN's self-produced songs can be streamed on the band's MySpace page, including the track "Awake", which was among the top 10 most downloaded songs at the Roadrunner web site.
