The UK is very well known for breaking some of rock’s most influential acts and as of 2011 you can add ASKING
ALEXANDRIA’s name to this already illustrious list. In Sept. 2009, this British sensation unleashed their debut album,
Stand Up and Scream, upon North America and the disc quickly sent shockwaves throughout the metal/hard rock underground
scene. This was a propulsive blend of aggressive music with hints of European Trance, soft catchy melodies
resulting in a sound more mature than just your average play by numbers hardcore outfit. This was just the refreshing
new sound that people have been waiting for.
