Album Review

Strictly all-meat-no-filler metalcore, the second album by Australian outfit Parkway Drive is the sort of solidly efficient album that keeps terms like "solidly efficient" from sounding like faint praise. The five-piece led by singer Winston McCall, along with producer Adam Dutkiewicz (who between his ongoing tenure in Killswitch Engage and his side career as one of metalcore's most in-demand producers is turning into the style's equivalent of high-profile indie producer Chris Walla), keep the songs stripped down to bare essentials, right down to the largely under three-minute song lengths. Similarly, McCall's vocals avoid the more comical extremes of the traditional metalcore bark while maintaining a suitably aggressive presence, while the band's lockstep rhythm section (bassist Jia O'Connor and drummer Ben Gordon) and unison-riff specialist guitarists Jeff Ling and Luke Kilpatrick fire off each track with enough energy to compensate for the general sameness of approach. As a result, Horizons is strictly by the book metalcore, but delivered with enough talent and passion to put across a set of songs that might easily come off as samey and dull in less capable hands.

Customer Reviews

EPIC

If you though "Killing with a Smile" was good, you're in for a treat. The only word that I can describe for this album is "epic." No other hardcore album comes close, except maybe Killswitch Engage's As Daylight Dies. This album is very heavy, but not overbearing like other genres (grindcore, black metal, etc) and is the best hardcore album of 2007. Their musical maturity is growing a lot more by means of intricate and smoothly woven guitar solos that perfectly compliment the rhythm section and breakdowns that simply do what they are supposed to do- punch you in the chest.

Haha.

To the kid that said this band is no different.. Leave then. This does not sound like as i lay dying. Or killswitch. This band is awesome and i think it in large part has to do with the vocalist. Its pure energy. Passion. Power. They remind me a lot of IKTPQ with song structures and such. This whole CD is a must buy.

Wow

Parkway Drives last album was really good, but this album is put together much better. Like all albums, it is hard to listen to for the first few times, but once you get the songs in your head they are amazing, This cd is really diverse and songs dont have the same repetitiveness many other artists have..there are no filler songs. BONEYARDS has one of the sickest breakdowns I have ever heard, along with many others. I really recommend this album, and their old music. Great album
