Parkway Drive is an Australian metalcore band from Byron Bay, New South Wales, Australia, formed in 2002. As of 2009, Parkway Drive has released two full-length albums, Killing with a Smile and Horizons, a DVD, an EP, entitled Don't Close Your Eyes and two split albums.

History

Early History/Killing With A Smile (2002–2006)

Parkway Drive formed in the summer of 2002. The origin of the band's name is from the band's hometown in Byron Bay, Australia. The band would practice in a house garage, aptly named the "Parkway House", on the street named "Parkway Dr.". Not long after the band had formed, they released a split EP with metalcore band I Killed the Prom Queen from Adelaide, entitled I Killed the Prom Queen / Parkway Drive in 2003. Parkway Drive also made an appearance on the Byron Bay Hardcore compilation What We've Built, preceded by their EP, Don't Close Your Eyes. In May 2005, they headed to the USA to record their debut album with renowned metal producer, Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz whose production credits include Unearth and Underoath.

Since the release of Don't Close Your Eyes, Parkway Drive have rapidly accumulated a fanbase Australia-wide, courtesy of support slots for international acts including Hatebreed, In Flames, Chimaira, Shadows Fall, As I Lay Dying, Bleeding Through, Alexisonfire, and performances at Metal for the Brain 2005 and Australia's Hardcore 2005. The band's debut album, Killing with a Smile was released in August 2005 and has since sold in excess of 30,000 copies in Australia.[citation needed] They toured strongly behind the album, playing dozens of headlining shows, as well as an appearance at the Gold Coast leg of the Big Day Out festival in January 2006.

In June 2006, the band was signed to Epitaph Records, which released their debut album Killing with a Smile in the United States during August of that year. In late May 2006, bass player Shaun Cash left the band for personal reasons with full support from the rest of the members. The band soon found a replacement in their "merch guy" and long-time friend, Jia "Pie" O'Connor. Now a permanent part of the line-up, he played with them for the rest of their first international tour in the United Kingdom and Europe, and later dates in the United States.

In October 2006, they were billed as the Australian contingent on the Rockstar Taste of Chaos tour, playing alongside Anti-Flag, Underoath, Thursday, Senses Fail, Taking Back Sunday and Saosin. During November and December 2006, they appeared at the Homebake Festival, Sound Fest, Resist Records' tour, Soundwave Festival and Gravity G Festival before returning to the UK and Europe.

Horizons (2007 - 2009)

On 3 March 2007, a new song was previewed to a crowd at Underworld entitled "The Sirens' Song". The song would later feature on Horizons. They were placed on the bill for the U.S. Vans Warped Tour 2007 as the only Australian band on the tour. On 15 August, Winston McCall appeared in an interview on the short.fast.loud show on Australia's Triple J Radio station in which he previewed a track off Horizons entitled "Boneyards."

Horizons was released on 6 October 2007. The album was generally acclaimed by critics and fans alike; especially Blunt Magazine, 'simply slays from the get go'[citation needed] and awarded it 10/10, and planet-loud.com, which suggested that it would 'set the benchmark for metal albums to come'. It debuted at number 6 on the ARIA Charts.[1] After the release of Horizons, the band toured through the US, Australia and Europe with such bands as Killswitch Engage, Bury Your Dead, Darkest Hour and others.

In February/March 2008, Parkway teamed up with Byron Bay bands/friends 50 lions (fronted by Winston's brother) and Word Up!, to complete the Surf Rats Tour of east coast Australia. This tour (travelling to towns not listed on the standard touring circuit) was based around surfing big surf spots on the way.

In December 2008, Parkway Drive toured Australia nationally on the "Sweatfest" Tour. In support of Parkway Drive was; A Day To Remember, Suicide Silence, The Acacia Strain and Confession. In 2008, Parkway Drive's "Smoke 'Em If Ya Got 'Em" was remixed by Sydney producers Teen Heat. On 12 December 2008 while performing at UNSW Roundhouse, Parkway Drive announced that they were filming a DVD of the show, which would include footage of the performance and a few songs from other bands featured in the Sweat Fest Tour. On 18 January 2009, Parkway Drive announced their headlining US tour with Stick to Your Guns and Mychildren Mybride. On 28 January to 1 February 2009, Parkway Drive went on a tour in Japan with Shai Hulud and Crystal Lake. Parkway Drive played at the 2009 Bamboozle Lineup at the Giant's Stadium parking lots; as well as being confirmed at 2009's Download Festival.

In May 2009, Parkway Drive announced that they would be releasing a live DVD and an Australian tour was also announced with August Burns Red and Architects in support of it. Supporting them on their sold out Sydney leg of the tour will be local Sydney band Hand of Mercy, on their Newcastle leg will be Safe Hands, hometown Byron Bay show will be Sink Or Swim, their Melbourne leg will be local Melbourne band House Vs. Hurricane and In Trenches, on their Canberra leg, Dead Kings, on the Brisbane leg, Wish for Wings, and on their Adelaide leg, Abandon All Hope. In June 2009, Parkway Drive played at the 2009 Download Festival.

Horizons is to date their best selling release, with the album reaching multi-platinum status in Europe.

Untitled 3rd Album (2009 onwards)

Parkway Drive have been confirmed on the 2010 Warped Tour lineup for all dates.

On March 23, Parkway Drive entered the studio to begin recording their forthcoming album, still as of yet untitled, with producer Joe Barresi. According to frontman Winston McCall, this will be their rawest, and heaviest record to date. [2]It is scheduled for release sometime in June or July of 2010.

According to a blog posted on Myspace on April 1st, 2010, they have finished tracking the drums for the album.

According to a blog posted on April 8th, 2010, Parkway Drive were half finished with rhythm guitars, bass and vocals for the upcoming untitled album.

Цитата:
It would be a crime to classify Parkway Drive as simply another band to alloy Hardcore and metal genres into a sound more parody than paragon. Basically because, they do it with a passion that will make you feel like you've been kicked in the throat. Come to think of it, if you've been lucky enough to see them live, you probably have been.

Originating from the small coastal town of Byron Bay, the band, citing influences such as Unearth, Bleeding Through, and Evergreen Terrace, have rapidly accumulated an enviably loyal fanbase Australia-wide and have been attributed as the main cause of the flourishing Byron Bay Hardcore scene.

Parkway Drive has amassed a huge amount of respect in a very short amount of time in both the metal and hardcore communities. In May 2005 the band headed to the USA to record their debut album with renowned metal producer and Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz (who is responsible for acclaimed releases from the likes of Unearth, Killswitch Engage and From Autumn To Ashes) at Zing Studio in Massachusetts.

The result is ‘Killing With A Smile’, 11 tracks of pure rage, and without question Parkway Drive’s finest hour to date. With a massive sound that encompasses Swe-death riffs, punishing breakdowns, thick rhythms, mayhem inducing blastbeats and a technical precision that borders on frightening, Parkway Drive transcend cliched labels like ‘metalcore’ with ease.

This is an album that will appeal to all fans of extreme music, a fact reflected in the diverse crowds that flock to Parkway Drive’s packed out live shows, where it’s not unusual to see metal fanatics flying around the pit with their hardcore siblings.

Since the release of “Don’t Close Your Eyes” Parkway Drive have rapidly accumulated an enviably loyal fanbase Australia wide courtesy of support slots for international acts including Hatebreed, In Flames, Chimaira, Shadows Fall, As I Lay Dying, Bleeding Through, Alexisonfire, Metal For the Brain 2005 and headlining honours at Australia’s premier hardcore festival Hardcore 2005

От себя:
Любителям подобной музыки - ценить всем в обязательном порядке, одна из лучших работ, что я услышал в 2005 году. Парни рубят мелодик металкор в смеси с самым настоящим smdm в его лучших традициях. Всё очень четко и технично. Я под большим впечатлением

А у них помимо этого есть еще альбомы?

Да еще есть сплит с I Killed The Prom Queen и епишка "Don't Close Your Eyes". Тоже очень интересно послушать

Альт по звучанию и восприятию все же на много проще.. Металкор сложнее и тяжелее.. Врядли его смогут слушать те люди которым он не интересен.. это моё имхо, теперь может по теме? smile.gif

Народ, а что все молчат, никого быльше не зацепило что ли? huh.gif

Все сделано добротно и качественно. Согласен с Дядькой, ничего особенного dry.gif

kill.switch, да и кстати, сейчас новые ню-метал релизы, уже не говоря о рэпкоре, являются чуть ли не редкостью. Какой ажиотаж был у альбома Disturbed! Ill Nino! Mudvayne! Хм, еще пару лет назад от него прохода не было, а сейчас это уже редкость.

че-то я похожести ваще не заметил.
а по-моему похоже, даже очень.
всем пока. у меня новая жизнь.
По-моему с killswitch их сравнивать вообще не стоит.. Чистого вокала практически нет темболее тех знаменитых "килсвичевских" запевов. Музыка былиже к мелодик дету нежели к хк. Мне напомнили Darkest Hour, Unearth и даже где-то Dark Tranquillity

Если кто сомневается качать или нет, здесь можно заценить 2 песни:
