Not as hilariously bad as "iT's A gLiTcH iN tHe CoRtEx!!!" but this ain't it either. This is what I imagine LARPers listen to before charging into battle.

Entirely fair i think revising those for me will just make me sad to know how hard they dropped the ball now. Fun fact they have barely toured Aus even when it was the only option in the last 3 years

Parkway Drive just continues to evolve over time. "The Greatest Fear" is a paced, methodical burn that slams in its final seconds of life. I know this isn't old Parkway Drive, but we all grow. This album is already off to a powerful start. Long-time fan who would love to see Winston wail live.

I remember them saying on their dvd something about Australia never really having any great metal bands and that they started Parkway Drive to be the first great australian metal band

and a couple of scenes later you have this dude in his boxer shorts sparring with his boner on camera while the rest of the band are staring and laughing

I don’t know if anyone else has seen the dvd that I’m talking about but this song sounds like something those people would make

Haven't listened to these guys since Deep Blue, always thought they thought they were solid metal core but not like everyone else seemed to love even as an Australian.

What a transformation they've taken in the years in-between. This blows.

I said this on the glitch thread but I’ll say it again. These guys were probably some of the most relentless tour animals from 2004-2015. I think they’ve gotten a bit tired and just want to cash in on big festival anthems. They’ve earned it but it sucks lol
