Vancouver based Deathcore outlet ‘Glimpse Of Mutiny’ have recently released their debut, 3-track EP which intends to stray from the general ‘norm’ the genre has been seen to develop as of late. The EP presents an impressive range of Metal-based genres within the primarily Deathcore release which include aspects of Metalcore, Thrash and Progressive Metal, all of which give the release a unique and unconventional feel.
These unconventional styles are evident in the first track ‘With Webbed Fingers’ which starts off with a circle pit inducing Thrash riff, with your average breakdown following a few seconds after. Talking of breakdowns, in each song they hit hard and are used when relevant, as well as helping to obtain the entire Deathcore vibe.The remainder of the track contains moments of Progressive Death Metal with hints of Avant-Garde which is blended together surprisingly well.
The other two tracks ‘Perish’ and ‘Sofia’ contain more of the same unpredictability and fast paced brutality. Instrumentally, this band are insane. Each track is littered with complexity in terms of the guitar work as well as the drums, and the vocals are performed to a very professional standard.
In conclusion, my advice would be to welcome this EP in to your music library with open arms, it’s borderline perfection. A must have for any metal fan.
