A trailer for “Wild Eyes”, the new video from Australian metallers PARKWAY DRIVE, can be seen below. The song comes off the band’s fourth album, “Atlas”, which was released on October 30, 2012 via Epitaph Records. The deluxe package included the “Home Is For The Heartless” DVD, a unique travelogue that follows the band’s adventures touring to many obscure destinations including Colombia, China and India.
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.
Recorded in Los Angeles with esteemed producer Matt Hyde (SLAYER, HATEBREED), “Atlas” sets the standard in musical progression by pushing musical boundaries and drawing from a wider scope of influence. From heavy, technically advanced riffs and rapid fire blast beats, to haunting death growls combined with fervent vocals and symphonic melodies, “Atlas”‘ ferocious mix of metal and hardcore reaches new horizons with songs such as “Dark Days”, “Old Ghost / New Regrets” and “The River”, all of which will have fans careening straight for the circle pit.
“Everything has been enhanced,” said McCall. “People don’t have to kiss the old parts goodbye. When you think of change, you think of things being taken away, but there’s not a case here where anything has been taken away. This is just more on top.”
