Why bring me the horizon is first when here we have one of the biggest metalcore bands of all time, if not the best. bring me the horizon is good, oliver's vocals are excellent, but nothing is like the guttural winston, nothing is like the riffs and breakdowns Jeff ling and luke, and Ben is one of the best drummers of the 21th century. Parkway Drive is innovation, is one of the bands that may represent the modern metal and has the potential to save the pop riffs of metal 90s or 80s parkway drive is the best, and should rather be in first place, bring me the horizon is just another band like all the others, but does fame. - Danoni

Parkway Drive is one of those bands you will remember forever. You find new songs to love each time you listen to their album. They are even better live

Just listened, a little light, but overall good.

Parkway Drive deserves the first place most of all in this list. Parkway Drive today is one of the best bands of the 21st century and the best concertesa Metal / Hardcore style. Even without clean vocals, the scream and the instrumental of this band are more than perfect, fleeing the sameness of many bands today, and without saying that the 4 albums and to the EP are all excellent and all practically perfect songs, I recommend everyone here in this site to hear at least some of the band and take their own decisions, and see if you have any band with drum solos and better guitar than Karma, Idols and Anchors, Sleepwalker, Its Hard to Speak Without a Tongue (which looks a lot like riffs IKTPQ - Say Goodbye) among many other songs that are able to bring back the metal Escencia, which is withereth over the years. Parkway Drive is the best Metalcore band on the planet, and more than deserves this
