Yet another creative leap forward for the chart-topping Australian band, Atlas boasts some of the most up front and confrontational material Parkway Drive has ever released, while at the same time taking several unexpected turns into lush sonic terrain, redefining their trademark sound while reinforcing their position as leaders in their field.
The new record is positioned to be the most highly anticipated heavy album of the year and follows 2010’s phenomenally successful Deep Blue, which debuted #39 in the US on the Billboard 200, #2 in Australia, as well as reaching solid Gold and winning the ARIA Award for Best Hard Rock and Metal Album. It is already receiving rave reviews from the renowned rock/metal press: Rock Sound called it band’s “finest and without question most diverse album to date”, granting the record a 9/10 score, while Metal Hammer, who rated the album with a 9 out of 10 as well, stated that Atlas is an “evidence enough that they’re one of the best metalcore bands on earth.”
The video for debut track “Dark Days” has received over 1,3 million views on YouTube:
