"Cohesive and engaging throughout, this is a sound of a band at their most fearless." - (4.5/5 - Alternative Press)
"Having steadily improved with each subsequent release, Parkway Drive's fourth Album is hands down their best yet, and it's also their most ambitious." - (10/10 - Outburn Magazine)
"Australian hardcore metal band Parkway Drive has done it again." - (Aquarian Weekly)
"Under the radar, Parkway Drive have become one of the most important heavy bands of
recent years." - (9/10 - Metal Hammer)
"Parkway Drive put themselves in a tier of modern heavy music that not many others are
matching." - (4.5/5 - Decoy Music)
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 and has since built steadfast momentum as a result of a groundswell of fan support in the US. Building on a record that was regarded as "not just a landmark album for themselves, [but] a milestone album for modern metal, ( Metal Hammer)," Atlas cements Parkway Drive as the world's most hardcore musical superpower.
