Parkway Drive – Atlas

Parkway Drive is one of the more successful metalcore bands out there. Their fan base is huge, as well as dedicated. They have brought just about everything to the table over the past three albums; huge ballads that beg to be shouted along to, heavy hitting metalcore songs with brutal breakdowns, and catchy songs with riffs that stay in your mind for a longer time than anyone would care to admit. However the main problem with this band is that over the past three albums, while they have incorporated all of those elements and many more, they have yet to make a truly great album. Spread out over three releases, the most recent one Deep Blue being their best thus far, it is hard not to get the feeling that they had it in them to make a great album that combined all three elements successfully, but never did. So with their latest outing, have Parkway Drive continue to make the same mistake, or did they improve their formula to make a better album?
