Editorial Reviews

Australia's Parkway Drive follow in the footsteps of Unearth, Bleeding Through, and Evergreen Terrace, and they've amassed a huge amount of respect in a very short time in both the metal and hardcore communities. Here are eleven tracks of pure rage, a massive sound that encompasses death riffs, punishing breakdowns, thick rhythms, mayhem-inducing beats, and a technical precision that borders on frightening. "Killing With A Smile" will appeal to all extreme music fans.

First off, this band is NOT American. They are from Austrailia and are very good friends of I Killed The Prom Queen. I first heard the song Mutiny on their Myspace, and was blown away. After I got the cd and found out Adam from Killswitch produced their cd, I knew the rest of it would be good. If you love great melodic metal-core, and you're tired of a lot of "trendy" bands, and you want something different, get this. Every song is amazing and it's one of the few cds I never skip a track on.

I have heard many metalcore/Hardcore bands around, and i would have to say Parkway Drive is my favourite by far. The sound is unique and every song has something different and catchy about it. Although every song on the Cd is sensationable, i would have to rate there best song is "A Cold Day In Hell"

For those who have recently purchased this Cd and would like to know more about Parkways music, They also have 3 Other ep's. They have a EP entitled "Don't Close Your Eyes" This EP has 8 tracks, including the original "Smoke 'Em If Ya Got 'Em"

Parkway also have 2 older EP's, one entitled "Parkway Drive & I Killed The Prom Queen Split", only having 2 songs on it, aswell as another split EP with "Think Straight" aswell as "Shoot To Kill", this EP is entitled "What We've Built" and includes 3 songs. These 2 EP's are rare and more difficult to find than "Don't Close Your Eyes"

Although Parkway have an enormous amount of tallent throughout all there music, "Killing With A Smile" would be their standout Cd up to date.

My biggest advice to you is to purchase this cd and give it a try, you will definately not be dissapointed.

Wow where did Parkway Drive come from? I mean I know where they came from, but it amazes my mind how these guys got so good in only being together for a short time. To my knowledge they only have one previous ep (which is hard to get a hold of to begin with) and "Killing With A Smile", which in it's own respect is a superiorly technical slab of metallic hardcore that will put eyeliner-fashioncore-scenesters to shame. Everything Parkway Drive presents on "Killing With A Smile" is jaw-dropping, and easily ranks up at the top of the ladder with metalcore heavyweights such as Killswitch Engage and As I Lay Dying. However where KSE of AILD lighten up to become more accessible to the mass public, Parkway Drive keeps their foot on the gas pedal and hammers your ears to the floor. Swedish death metal fans (At The Gates, In Flames) are going to eat this up, but so will the hardcore kids which is a nice touch for the band as it shows they can appeal to a broad audience. Simply "Killing With A Smile" is probably one of the most overlooked (and difficult to find) metalcore records I've listened to this year, and I'd recommend you track down a copy, especially if you're into metal or hardcore.

After being battered by the blistering opener "Gimme A D", you'd think you were listening to something like At The Gates "Slaughter Of The Soul", because the musicians in this band are extremely, extremely talented. There's definitely a melodic death nature about the music, especially in the guitar style which has obvious hints of At The Gates and In Flames.

One of the elite hardcore albums around at the moment. Produced by Adam Dutkiewicz from Killswitch Engage has helped to put together one of the most complete hardcore albums I own. Some of the highlights for me are songs including 'Pandora', and gimmie a.d. The album reaches its pinnacle with an angry verbal assault over lost a love, put together with some creative heavy guitar work in 'Romance is Dead'. A must own for all Fans of Metal and Hardcore.

Australia has kangaroos and America has metalcore bands. Both are in great abundance and it seems several of them are even born with each passing day. Thus, metalcore bands from a foreign country (where the genre isn't as popular) might be huge in their homeland, but they've still got to conquer the United States (where there's plenty of competition for heavy music's spotlight). Australia's Parkway Drive are one example of a band that's currently facing this challenge - they just can't seem to garner as much respect overseas as they did down under.

Truth be told, though, Parkway Drive actually deserve your attention. Although they're not exactly redefining the current music scene, they're one of only a few modern metal bands that isn't an obvious Killswitch Engage or At The Gates rip-off. Also, despite what you may have heard, they actually do not sound very closely related to Bleeding Through and/or Unearth. Instead, the music heard on their debut album ("Killing With A Smile") is far from textbook in this day and age, and one could even argue that, because it's so heavy (sometimes even brutal), it doesn't belong anywhere near the metalcore tag. If anything, this sound, which is saturated with wall-shaking riffs, busy blast beats, flattening rhythms, and bone-crunching breakdowns, surprisingly technical musicianship and bellowed vocals, leans closer to being death metal (or at least deathcore).

Opener "Gimme AD" immediately gets the album into the thick of things. It's a lethal and immediately memorable mix of nifty hooks, smoking, dogfight riffs, high yells, quick, skilled drum patterns (including thunderous double kicks and a persistent, thumping snare drum), bullying rhythms, and a Lamb of God-meets-Deicide vocal style.
