Parkway Drive

  • From: Byron Bay NSW, Australia

This generation saw the creation of the New Wave Of American Heavy Metal, when bands like Killswitch Engage, All That Remains and As I Lay Dying dominated Ozzfest, Vans Warped Tour and Rockstar Mayhem Fest with a bold new sound combining the best elements of the New Wave of Swedish Death Metal, traditional heavy metal and visceral underground hardcore. Australia answered back with Parkway Drive. Byron Bay’s brightest is now an international force, seizing the worldwide crown through sheer determination, force of will and undeniable musicality. It’s all courtesy of pulverizing but unforgettably catchy riffs, vocals that connect on levels that are at once urgent and visceral and a groundswell of support with fans and press that stretches across several continents. Whether headlining Never Say Die in Europe, setting the stage ablaze on Thrash and Burn in the US, launching their own Mix N’ Mash in Australia or stealing the show at festivals ranging from Download to Sonisphere, Parkway Drive has earned a reputation as one of the most vitally important bands of the modern metal age. New Musical Express, Alternative Press, Metal Hammer and countless other publications have recognized what the worldwide underground has long known: Parkway Drive has perfected the special blend of heavy histrionics and crowd-participation-inducing connectivity so many bands aspire toward yet too few achieve.
