has always been my favorite band. With this release they decided to do something a bit different. They mixed a lot of hard rock/heavy metal influences in with their metalcore sound to produce and I quote 'a musical baby of motley crue and slipknot'!!!
Asking alexandria has always been a metalcore/electronicore band with tons of heavy breakdowns and screams. With this release they prove they can be influenced by hard rock and still be brutal enough for the hardcore fans out there. They have their softer tracks like Run Free
and Moving On
, but still prove they have the BRUTAL capabilities like demonstrated in the songs Believe and Dont Pray For Me.
Certain tracks may be liked by some and hated by others - such as The Death of Me
because of its rock related core, but I say this to all the AA haters out there, every track on this album has its ups and downs but that doesn't make it bad!
I APPLAUD this release as it demonstrates a truly great band that will be loved for years to come, especially from me. 20/20
NOTABLE TRACKS - Run Free
, Believe, Creature
, The Road
