Five Finger Death Punch bassist Chris Kael has spoken out against the negative fan responses surrounding Parkway Drive‘s new album, Reverence.
Winston McCall and co. put the album out last week Friday (4 May) to critical acclaim, with a great number of international media praising the band for their maturing sonic shift. We gave the record a nine out of ten, calling it an “incendiary collection of music“.
Taking to Instagram, Kael hit out at the culture of overwhelming negativity which the Internet has managed to breed in recent years, explaining how the web has become a platform for negativity and criticism as opposed to one of sharing positive experiences. “People are more likely to leave a negative review than to take the time to praise a positive experience.” writes the bassist, making a pretty valid point in the process.
Speaking of Reverence, Kael also came out in support and praise of the record, despite admitting that he is largely unfamiliar with their back catalogue. “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.” he wrote.
