Album Review

The third full-length by Australian metalcore band Parkway Drive finds them changing producers but not their fundamental approach. Where their first two discs were shaped by Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam D., the new one has Joe Barresi behind the boards. He's known for working with progressive-minded artists like Tool, Isis, and Coheed and Cambria, but Parkway Drive are about as un-progressive as you can get. Their downtuned, concussive sound fits right in with peers like Every Time I Die, Bleeding Through, Throwdown, and dozens if not hundreds of other bands. There are some surprises here, some side trips into more serious metal, with vocalist Winston McCall in particular shifting from a snarl not unlike Lamb of God's Randy Blythe to a harsh black metal-influenced shriek. Barresi has filled the low end with booming bass, and the drums are relatively free of the tick-tock triggering that plagues many other metalcore acts; indeed, they sound like they're played by a live human being in a big room, a bit of sonic wizardry many producers seem to have forgotten how to perform. No individual song leaps out, though the delicate voices at the beginning of "Home Is for the Heartless" and the undersea effect that kicks off "Sleepwalker" are cool tricks. Taken as a whole, Deep Blue demonstrates that Parkway Drive are very good at what they do, and just need someone to help them leap out from the pack a little more.

Customer Reviews

Keeps getting better...

Parkway Drive don't fail to impress...which is why I bought my tickets to the Never Say Die tour in Manchester.
And in response to the guy who said it was 'shouty'...not once does he shout , this is talent and metal at it's best... So go and put a donk on it if you aren't happy , but we are.

The best metalcore around

Another blistering offering from Aussies finest. If you like Horizons, Killing with a Smile and/or Don't close your eyes you need to just buy it (and if you haven't got any of these you need to get em') This represents the official graduation to the big time for PD on the back of the behemoth that is 'Horizons' not sure yet if it fully matches that mesmeric offering but it for sure as hell is another distinctly large slab of melodic bludgeoning. Leading lights are 'Wreakage' 'Sleepwalker' and 'Unrest'.

Excellent new album.

To put it simple, Parkway Drive have stepped up their mark and are definialy proving that they are the best at what they do. Excellent breakdowns, guitar riffs coming at you from everywhere, pummeling drums, the bass is heavy enough to slap you into next week, and Winston's vocals just tops it all off.

A personal favourite is Pressures, amazing breakdown and the drums are fantastic.
A few more listens and it could possibly become one of my favourite Parkway albums.

I definitely recomment that you check this album out, buy it, buy their merch, buy a ticket to one of their shows. They desevere so much support.

Amazing band.


Formed: 2003 in Byron Bay, Australia

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Hailing from the hippie-loving beachfront town of Byron Bay, Australia, metalcore outfit Parkway Drive blasted out of their serene surroundings touting a volatile blend of intricate metal riffing, punishing breakdowns, and hardcore's emotional tension. Named after a rural countryside road, the band was formed in summer 2003 by vocalist Winston McCall, guitarists Luke Kilpatrick and Jeff Ling, drummer Ben Gordon, and bassist Jia O'Connor. They split an EP with like-minded countrymen I Killed the Prom...
