Asking Alexandria is one of the most popular {{Metalcore}}/[[ScreamoMusic Screamo]] bands of the 21st century. They are currently one of the modern faces of the genre and Sumerian Records flagship band with a rabid {{fandom}} and {{hatedom}}. Although they traffic on the usual metalcore tropes of screaming vocals and breakdowns, they distinguish themselves by being influenced by 80's {{Hard Rock}} and featuring euro influenced electronica sections.

They debuted in 2009 with "Stand up and Scream" was a modest success with an {{Electronicore}} sound, boued by the viral success of first single "The Final Episode" the album managed to pave the way for later success.

Their sophomore record "Reckless and Relentless" made them a smash, debuting on multiple charts and turning them into a mainstream, headliner act. this album saw them start to move away from electronic elements and the addition of hard rock and hair metal elements.

Their latest album 'From Death to Destiny" is not only their greatest success so far and the result of a drastic change in sound and image, almost completely ditching {{metalcore}} in favor of {{hard rock}} and {{arena rock}} with slight metalcore elements. While many older fans have griped, this has broken them through almost fully into the hard rock mainstream, with the {{power ballad}} "Moving On" being especially successful.

In 2015, singer Danny Worsnop left the band due to his fading interest in metalcore, and to focus on his 80s rock influenced project We Are Harlot. He has since been replaced by former Make Me Famous and Down & Dirty singer Denis Shaforostov, better known as Denis Stoff.

* {{Sex Drugs And Rock and Roll}}: Most of the lyrics past the first album are this.

* {{Sex Drugs And Rock and Roll}}: Most of the lyrics past the first album are this. This is virtually absent after Denis took over lead vocals.



** It is however good to note that the lower range he was left with, he has tried hard to improe his ability in. This shows on the Rock Mix of "The Death of Me"

* {{Follow the Leader}}: Their hatedom has levied this accusation against their early sound; describing it as a mix between Music/{{The Devil Wears Prada}}'s ultra slick melodic {{Metalcore}}, {{Bring me the horizon}}'s Emo Teen oriented look, and {{Enter Shikari}}'s rave informed {{electronicore}}.

* FaceOfTheBand: Guitarist Ben Bruce is the true brains behind the band.


Added DiffLines:

* IAmVeryBritish: Averted. Most of the band is from [[OopNorth York]], Danny lived in Texas for a while in his youth which seems to have resulted in a case of WhatTheHellIsThatAccent, and Denis is from Ukraine.

** On the other side of it with new singer Denis Stoff, who was clearly a massive fan going back to his first band "Make Me Famous", and once uploaded a clip of him covering a segment of "Killing You" a whole 2 years before he'd get to perform it with them.



* {{Vocal Evolution}}: Worsnop's vocals have changed dramatically due to heavy drug and alcohol consumption. When they first came out he had a very wide range and a high pitched voice that resembled a british Anthony Green or Craig Owens. Now his voice is a lot rougher and lower pitched. In fact he can barely sing "Not the American Average" anymore.

* {{Emo Teen}}: A big part of their early image (their first album even featured the lead singer of Alesana. but as of From Death to Destiny they've ditched it with a drunken, hedonistic party image, with beards, unkempt clothing and hair, and leather cloths.
