Five Finger Death Punch Bassist Defends Parkway Drive’s New Album In Lengthy Rant

Five Finger Death Punch bassist Chris Kael has posted a long defence of the new Parkway Drive record Reverence.

The new Parkway Drive album dropped on Friday and it signals another sonic shift for the band which has got some fans hating on it.

After seeing the negative comments Kael was sparked to jump to the band’s defence writing on Instagram, “This new album fucking RULES.”

Admitting that he’s only listened to a bit of Ire and this latest record he said it, “Doesn’t change the fact that I can enjoy a great record even if I’m unfamiliar for the most part of their catalog as a whole.”

“I’ve listened to it probably 10 times in the past two days of travel and am listening to it as I type our this post.”

He went on to call the negative comments “bullshit opinions” and said that the negative comments always outweigh the positive.

“People are more likely to leave a negative review than to take the time to praise a positive experience,” he wrote.

“I encourage those surfing shit on the internet today – put in half the effort you do in talking shit behind the safety and comfort of a keyboard in promoting positivity for a change.”

Interestingly some fans have remarked that the new Parkway Drive sounds like Five Finger Death Punch. Five Fingers Death Punch will drop their new album And Justice for None in just a few weeks time.

Notice: Rant ahead in 3…2…I HAVE to make this post after seeing some of the negative comments from “fans” of @parkwaydriveofficial giving scathing reviews of their new record on the social networks. This new album fucking RULES. I listened to “Ire” a bit; but, am only REALLY familiar with #Reverence, their latest record. Doesn’t change the fact that I can enjoy a great record even if I’m unfamiliar for the most part of their catalog as a whole. I’ve listened to it probably 10 times in the past two days of travel and am listening to it as I type our this post. I’ve even gone out of my way to let others who follow me know how much I enjoy #Reverence. When I enjoy new music, I want others to be aware so that they too can share in the experience of something that I personally love. The negative barrage of bullshit opinions for which the internet provides is fucking disgusting and unfortunate. Clearly, the mothers of these keyboard critics failed to teach them, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” This negativity isn’t seen only in @parkwaydriveofficial’s comment section, it’s everywhere. @yelp is just as bad. People are more likely to leave a negative review than to take the time to praise a positive experience. It’s disheartening that a tool as valuable as the internet brings out the worst in people. So, on behalf of #ParkwayDrive who I guarantee are soaking in their own sense of accomplishment in putting out a record of which they are deservedly proud, this #KaelSalute goes out to negativity as a whole bringing vibes down across the internet. I encourage those surfing shit on the internet today – put in half the effort you do in talking shit behind the safety and comfort of a keyboard in promoting positivity for a change. Vibes are pervasive as fuck. The world would benefit from a change in focusing on the positive. Change starts with you. Do that shit. #DroppingTruthLikeABomb #ShitYesSon #PositivelyAffectingLives #Support (📸 by @slimfotos_music_photography)
