The Top Ten

Carrion - Horizons
No contest; nothing compares to this song well constructed, excellent vocals, and I never get tired of it. "carrion! In a moment I'm lost! Drowning from the inside! Her eyes take me away. Tare me apart from the inside out! " just look at the lyrics and fall in love. This song mad me notice them. Now I can't go back! Keep up the good work!
Awesome song, just love the way he screams CARRION at the intro


A trademark song by them, why isn't it on the list. Great song.
[Newest]This song is a Beast. Took me like 15 listens for some reason, but its great.

2Romance Is Dead - Killing With a Smile
The breakdown in this song is so awesome and heavy I threw my neck out when I was driving the other day. #spin
The brutal breakdowns that fluctuate from beginning to end, contrasting amazingly with the ambient strings in the final moments. This is what makes this song so powerful. So diverse. Love it!
That bit at the end gives me chill, its so awesome and the instruments blend so well.

Throughout the whole song the quality of blending and harmonizing of the instruments is done almost perfectly.
[Newest]I just love this song

3Sleepwalker - Deep Blue
This has the best riff of any Parkway song. I can just listen to this all day and not get over how awesome it is
Easily the greatest Parkway song. The opening riff! The opening riff!
Best song from Parkway Drive. Says "Australian metalcore is not dead! "
[Newest]Best Song. Always in the pit.

4Karma - Deep Blue
Amazing song. Kicks off with an awesome drum solo and just has addictive riffs throughout the whole song. Absolutely cannot get enough.
First Parkway Drive Song for me, the song's just one big breakdown and it's awesome for that

5Boneyards - Horizons
This song is nuts! Really catchy guitar riff at 0.51 and really good screams from Winston throughout the whole song. Definitely gives songs like Carrion and Idols and Anchors so much support off their best album!
My first song I heard by them so I HAVE to pick it. This song got me started on PwD and they quickly became my favorite band. They don't make bad songs. Every song has a part that at one point just melts your face. I just have to go with Boneyards. Plus it has my favorite breakdown in it at the end.
Probably my all time favorite breakdown
[Newest]Possibly the best breakdown ever.

6Horizons - Horizons
This is perhaps one of the best tracks in the entire metalcore genre! The lyrics, the music, the passion...
A good change of pace. A little slower, but still has an awesome breakdown
The ending solo takes me to a different world every time. Surely their best song!
[Newest]Excellent track with a more deeper message than most

7Dark Days - Atlas
Awesome song, the last 1:30 has the slickest solo to a huge breakdown I've ever heard
Passionate, meaningful, excellent vocal work from winston McCall, nice riffing, insane breakdown! Carrion close second though.
I have been listening to these guys for years now and their latest album blew me away. This and Slow Surrender are incredible.

8The River - Atlas
One of my personal favorites, should be in the top 5 at least. Everything is good about this song, the vocals, the screaming, the guitar, the breakdown. One of the best songs on atlas.
This was one of the first Parkway songs I heard when I was getting back into metal, this song is the reason I got back into listening to metal again, should be in top 10 at least
Best song on atlas. So much power and emotion behind this song. And it's heavy and the riffs are badass.
[Newest]Probably the deepest song they've out out there, so much emotion to it in general. And the chorus...

9Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em - Killing With a Smile
This should be in the top 3. The Hardcore intro and all those killer riffs-those breakdowns. This is an epic.
Dope Ass riffs throughout the whole songs. LOVE IT

10Frostbite - Horizons
Maybe a bit different from the usual Parkway song structure, but such an amazing guitar riff and intense vocals! The song is a masterpiece in structure, melody and intensity. A shame they never play it live...


The tapping part is awesome!

The Contenders

11Wild Eyes - Atlas
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Fantastic highs and lows! Don't even get me started on the instrumentals! Not only that, but the lyrics are downright phenomenal. Just look it up if you can and fall in love with this!
What?! These should be the first
Best parkway drive song ever
[Newest]Best guitar riff of all

12Idols and Anchors - Horizons
One of the best Intros I've ever heard. Love every riff. Drums are amazing. Vocals are equally incredible. I can't believe this isn't in the top ten let alone the top 3. Just listen to this song and I promise you too can understand the true meaning to live.
This song is the definition of a metalcore song. Fast tempo, catchy riffs, tapping interlude and a nice solo to finish off.
I love this song! Definitely the best! If I could play the guitar like this... And I'm a girl (would be hot, hm? ;) ) This guitar part at the end... It's just orgiastic and pure perfection! Period.

13The Siren's Song - Horizons
Great guitar. A fast paced song with a great breakdown

14Deadweight - Deep Blue
One of my favourite songs by them, I don't understand why they never play this live though?!

15Feed Them to the Pigs - Horizons
Title itself deserves top 10 spot

16Pandora - Killing With a Smile
Heavy breakdowns, cool melodic part
Very good lyrics about an atomic bomb.
The part after 2:55 is just amazing, and energizing
My favorite from their first album...

17Unrest - Deep Blue
The heaviest Parkway song, the whole song is a breakdown, by far my favorite song by them, so brutal and in your face

18Swing - Atlas
Last 40 Seconds of this song = Best breakdown I've heard so far.

19Home Is for the Heartless - Deep Blue
"An icon cast in the light of freer times, now writhes in a bed of lies! "
The soul reason I started listening to heavy metal
The guitar in this song is just unbelievable

20Dead Man's Chest - Horizons
