First of all, what is Parkway Drive (PD)? A road? A parking lot? Or a band? Well, yup its a band. Such a weird name, yet they are so rock!!! Yeah!!!

So, who the fuck is Parkway Drive? Simply to say, PD is a metal core band from Australia, yet they way they played reflecting a lot of music style, from classical to punk-rock style. This 5-piece band songs are something really worth to hear, as they are the only one band who managed to increase the selling of their CD`s from 150 something to over 1000 in just two years. They even numbered in mainstream charts without any song played via radio station or MTV. Yeah, they are wildly popular out there. Its fascinating that there is a band who manage to do this without the help from media.

Earlier this year (May if not mistaken), they had released a DVD set , a documentary about their journey to what they have become today and a live set. To be honest, I was so impressed after watching this DVD. That documentary showed their journey from just an unknown band to something that people willing to queue all day long for their show. Lots of happy and sad memories, their unstoppable spirit to fight for their band, it was all really worth to watch. Plus their live set performance was so exciting, watching thousand of fans sang along with them is a real proof of how their efforts in bringing up "Parkway Drive" were really paid off.

Why people love metal core genre? Many people maybe dislike this, indicating that the way they scream it not considered singing. Always referred back to black metal. Haha. Well ladies and gentleman, I representing the fans here would like to say that this is not true. They are many reasons why people love this genre. The act of playing during live show, the fast-tempo songs, the technical play metal always used, the breakdown, and also the guitar solo. This is it. This is why Parkway Drive is one of the best metal core band I`ve ever heard of, especially their breakdown, which is so good to me.

In short, I not saying that I fuck other genres. I am universal, learning to all kind of music. Muse, Lenka, Girl`s Generation. The more I hear, the more that I can know about people around the world, their inspiration, their style.

p / s : But I am a rocker. Enjoy band performance more than others.
