Top 50 of 2012: No.16: Parkway Drive - Atlas (Epitaph)

Joining a new wave of extreme metal, Parkway Drive have been pushing the boundaries since the get-go, alongside bands like Bring Me The Horizon and While She Sleeps, they’re proving that the genre can be spiced up a little and proving how stale the other bands have become. Atlas kicks off with a slow carefully picked intro which builds into a crescendo of noise, and while they do experiment here and there believe me they still bring to noise! Favourite track for me has to be ‘Swing’ with it’s “This soul was born for battle, My heart was built for war” refrain but the whole album is a joy to listen to from start to finish, excellent band as always.
