EDITORS’ NOTES

Having mastered one of metal’s angriest subgenres, Parkway Drive just got even heavier. Reverence, the Australian metalcore legends’ sixth album, picks up where 2015’s expansive, exploratory Ire left off. Rather than racing ahead with faster BPMs and ear-splitting shrieks, the band dig deeper—led by Winston McCall’s monstrous growls—to cataclysmic theatrical effect. Acoustic guitars, synths, and sinister spoken word add melodrama to “Wishing Wells” and “Cemetery Bloom,” and “The Void” packs a punch with thrilling, harmonized power-metal solos. After 15 years, Parkway Drive aren’t just relevant: they’ve still got plenty of pulverizing tricks up their sleeves.

Parkway Has Been Thinking Deeply

I have been listening to Parkway now for the past 13 years. I am here to tell you that I’m glad they aren’t recording the same sound they started with. There are plenty of bands out there with heavier rifts and breakdowns than what you will find on this album. It gets old. What we have here is something new and something unforgettable. This is Parkway Drive.

Not impressed.

PWD has been hit and miss over the years and these first two releases spell a miss for me. Don’t like the style of metal they’re going for.
