With each average ten minute track on the new Elder opus OMENS (Armageddon Shop, 4/24) the increasingly more progressive rock by leaps and bounds band of trailblazers head further into more exciting horizons. The standout cut "Embers" soars from almost flirting with Sunny Day Real Estate/Fairweather melodic but moody charm to sophisticated progressive alternative post metal. I know, that is a mouthful...but it's pure ear heaven. They were always good, but the level of freedom in the current material is extremely exciting, melodic and strong chakra opening good shit. This record defies shuffle mode and rather than pouts simply works on capturing your complete attention with brilliant performances. Press play on the title track and just let it all go. Along with bands like Huntsmen, Bask and King Buffalo, they are helping lead the way for a new pack of innovators still coloring within yet expanding historical sub-genres.

“Welcome to the free world
Where nothing’s as it seems
Tell me, can you find a cure
When you can’t see, and you can’t feel the disease…”
Parkway Drive are really at their most unstoppable at present, playing to huge crowds, dropping a Rage cover of “Bulls On Parade” (fun and heavy, but guitar tones didn’t do the groove justice) on a sea of mostly white fans. And now in this bad ass “Vice Grip” clip the metalcore band stole the best video of the week away from Slipknot’s sort of redundant “Killpop” (a great song musically and performance-wise, but the visuals seem dated and the lyrics, while super catchy, sound like a bad torture porn. Not my fave thing to know some of the meatier headed maggots are singing ,“I guess there’s nothing left to do, but have my way” ).
Anyway, new Parkway album IRE is due in September but fans can sing along with the bro “yeah yeah yeah” chant now and watch the Aussies dude it up in the desert. The footage of the band jumping out of the airplane together is really pretty fuckin’ cool and you can’t help but feel their bond and like these guys have the scene in the palm of their hands right now! Many solid songs and a dedicated drive is making this band new fans everyday, deservedly.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I realized there were only three bands playing. I didn’t know how early or late the show would be over, how long sets would be, or whether or not the bands would lack energy due to the small bill. The Parkway Drive show would be a different animal.

I fucking love consistency. Crushing drum blasts, vicious hard as nails vocals, and thrash and a half guiar riffing. Parkway Drive don’t fix shit if it’s not broken. For their fourth Epitaph full length, they keep it pretty tightly knit, same Parkway time, same Parkway place: fucking metal.

Parkway Drive is currently hiding out somewhere in Los Angeles, CA working on their next full length album. The band is going to take a total of seven weeks to work on this project, which is the longest that they have ever taken on any of their albums. This will be the band’s follow up to their infamous 2010 release Deep Blue.
Vocalist Winston McCall had these comments to make about the new album:
“When we finished Deep Blue I was like, ‘I don’t know where we go from here?’ But if there was ever a way to step up from the last record, this is the way to do it. We’re expanding in every way we can. But at the same time – and I say this with every new record – it still sounds like Parkway.”
