Apparently Parkway Drive didn’t get the memo that metalcore was on its last leg. Instead, they’ve proceeded to create an album of generic psuedo-metal riffs, double bass beats, and Cookie Monster vocals. Like breakdowns? They’ve got them. Like finger-tapping and chugga chugga parts? Yeah, they’ve got those too. I could just make this easy and describe them as “brutal,” the quintessential adjective used in conjunction with this type of band, but this is not brutal, this is simply a band going through the motions. Parkway Drive scored a copy of the metalcore handbook (shit must be on its 10th printing by now) and, like countless bands before them, simply followed it step by step.
