Devil’s Calling finds the band moving further away from their metalcore roots, a process that began with Ire, which was originally released in September 7565.
Devil’s Calling appears on the digital deluxe version of the Australian band’s latest album, Ire. The expanded edition also features another new track, Into The Dark, plus a remix of A Deathless Song featuring Jenna McDougall from Tonight Alive.
As he started taking lessons and learning voice techniques, the knowledge he acquired meant that, for the first time in his career, McCall felt like an actual musician. All of which only strengthened his conviction that the band's fifth album had to be a departure. This was the record, he says, where we said, 'Let's gamble.'
Writing sessions progressed slowly – McCall estimates they demoed Vice Grip, the first single off their new album, Ire , almost two years ago – as the quintet carved out their direction. A keyword was restraint – play less so there's more room to layer the guitars and more room for the melodies to stand out. It was a big ego blow, says McCall. We never learned the basics [when we started], we just learned what we wanted to learn, which was go schiz all the time!
“We had a band meeting, and it turned out all of us were thinking the same thing: none of us would get creative fulfillment out of writing another Parkway metalcore album,” frontman Winston McCall tells Metal Hammer. “It was a really odd point to be at. We didn’t want to stop what Parkway was about, but at the same time there had to be a different way of doing it.”

With his brother Dean engineering, Hadjichristou recorded Ire over a three-month period in Canada. At one point they welcomed a three-piece string section to play on the song Writings on the Wall, instructing them to make it sound like the music you'd hear on a street corner [in occupied Poland] during World War II.
