Parkway Drive, yet another Aussie group that knows how to rock. The album is produced by Adam from Killswitch engage and just like his previous produced album by All That Remains, this album looks to catch the ears of metalheads everywhere.

All the songs on this album will grab you by the neck and not let you go until it's all over. Don't listen if you're expecting clean song melodies and the cliche metalcore. This is straight up in your face metal that is very reminiscent of the American band As I Lay Dying. Well how As I Lay Dying used to be anyways.

When it's produced from Adam from Killswitch, you know it's gonna be something special. They might not be inventing the genre but they're making a dent in it. They will be destroying stages on the Warped Tour this summer. Be sure to check them out if you're into metal.

Sounds like:
As I Lay Dying, All That Remains
