Album: Asking Alexandrida, From Death to Destiny (Sumerian)

The name Asking Alexandria may conform to the emo cliché of present participle plus girl's name, but the York band technically qualify as metalcore.

In practice this means the well-worn formula of alternating between melodic interludes and thrash. It would take a listener more immersed in Kerrang! culture than I or, most likely, you to discern whether From Death to Destiny is a good or bad example of its genre. But an example of its genre it most certainly is.
