On the subject of The Greatest Fear, we hand over to Parkway Drive frontman Winston McCall for a run down about the track:
The greatest fear, the one we all share; this song is about the unifying force we all must face —death. The goal was to create a song that saw death not as something that separates, but something that connects us all on our paths. Musically, we wanted to create a song that did this concept justice. It’s heavy, it’s epic and when it stomps it leaves an impact.
The Greatest Fear, along with the eleven other tracks of Darker Still take the listener on a journey. Described by the band as “unfurling like the great rock concept albums” with a comparison particularly to Nine Inch Nails’ The Downward Spiral. Darker Still covers “society’s fear of death, isolation and a loss of humanity in its journey to redemptive enlightenment”.
