Parkway Drive are easily one of the better metalcore bands out there. Their mix of really fast riffing with lead harmonies is reminiscent of melodic death metal, while they maintain the elements of metalcore that many are familiar with, e.g. the breakdown. This “core” sound is what has brought them many fans, and now their fans can finally get some new music, mixed, mastered, and official.

I think this new song is a very strong indicator of what direction the band wants to go in. It sounds more focused and central than some of their earlier songs. Seems like ‘Deep Blue’ helped push the band to expand further and really tighten up their sound. You can listen to the song ‘Dark Days’ here.

Parkway Drive’s forthcoming release Atlas is out October 30th on Epitaph Records.
