Parkway Drive - Darker Still

This new Parkway Drive record, yeah it's not very good. I didn't expect anything incredible from them here but I thought they would put forth something worth my while. PWD have been slowly transitioning from Metalcore into a more radio friendly alt-metal sound. In doing so I think they created a non threatening metal record trying to appeal to a mass audience. It's formulaic, boring and a shell of what the band used to make. I can appreciate the attempt at a song like "Darker Still" which is one of the better songs on the LP but Winston's vocals are not great and it seems rather off for them to make a song like this. There are some songs I enjoyed but the overwhelming majority of tracks here are either boring or straight up bad. And "If a god can bleed" is unforgivable.

Top Tracks- Darker Still, Like Napalm, and Soul Beach

Non-Starters- if a god can bleed
