Why bother? Nothing's gonna change. You could use that time and energy to do something positive.

I'm kinda digging this honestly. It's a huge change. Those riffs are fun though. I'm a sucker I guess.

I think it's a better fleshed out and overall stronger album than Ire, but still won't come close to Atlas. The Void is arguably my least liked song on this, most of the unreleased songs are quite cool and well written. What intrigues me the most is how they did Chronos, it feels like at times they wanted fans to hear "Carrion" (intro and +3 minute mark) or stuff from Atlas (towards the end). Also Winston has cool rapping and clean vocals, they work, also Absolute Power fucking bangs.

My most disappointing album of the year. The blood and Chronos are the only remotely good songs on the album.

I really enjoy every song. You can feel the emotion they put into the album especially when you read the meaning of the album and songs. Abusolute Power, Shadow Boxing, In Blood, Chronos, I Hope You Rot are heavy hitters with Wishing Wells. Prey, The Void, are songs that branch out more towards different styles in my opinion. Cemetery Bloom is interesting about Winston's wife and his words and poetry are so good throughout the album. The Colour Of Leaving is emotional and heartbreaking about the loss of the band's friends dying to cancer. Overall I'd give it an 8/10. Better than I was expecting. This album was scaring me but I have faith Parkway will be safe in the future with this direction.

I hope you rot guitar solo, at the end of the song, is bullshit. I honestly wanted to listen to that, but noooo; "let's do a fade away". fuck that. I hate it shit.

That weirded me out so much, like when they initially started the fadeout I thought "hey ok, the track is ending, not a fan of fadeouts..." and then as the song reaches like ~50% volume THEY START PROPER FUCKING RIFFS :lol:

@SavageWraith Great review

 Couldn't agree more. The ending of The Colour Of Leaving has some of the best lyrics. 

 

"You never know the words you should've said until they're all you're left with, until the dirt is falling and the guilt it burns your bones. And we ask the biggest question, Why the fuck did this all happen? Who on earth deserves this and what the hell do we do now? So we live like we have lost and we love like we are broken. And as the color leaves the sky we are left in reverence of the frailty of it all."

 

God I love this band.

Shadow Boxing 5/5 holy fuck. This song is so blizzard but in the best way. It's very much classic Slipknot fast paced spoken word maybe even rapping some may say but it switches right back into a ruthless banger that's unmistakably Parkway Drive. Really cool track. Possibly my favorite besides Chronos but more on that later. Honestly I think metalcore fans would give this a solid 4/5 if they have a fully functional brain. Or enjoy really cool songs. That whisper "no one will save you..." brief silent pause "AHHH!!!" Killer track.

 

These were my thoughts too about this song. Im hearing "In Blood" now, and so far, it has strong tracks, solid tracks and one masterpiece. Shadow Boxing is just Art. 

 

I definitely will buy the album tomorrow :)

Didn't like any single so far,

was afraid I wouldn't like this album,

and I was right... sadly...

The artwork is the only thing I like about this album...

It's not about direction or stuff, I just can't get into it. I wish I could like I did for Atlas... fav song's Shadow Boxing tho

Hop you guys enjoy this album more than I do
