Asking Alexandria - Reckless And Relentless (Review)
This is not so new album which was released in April (thought I may as well discuss it). Asking Alexandria have been famous for combining the use of metalcore music with european trance, together making a nice melodic and some what catchy songs. After rising to popularity incredibly fast from their previous album, this album still includes the use of the european trance. The songs are written to an almost novice style, not very complicated, but they are quite melodic and just sound nice with the nice mixing they have used to produce this album. They still feature clean vocals with screams getting a nice blend of heaviness and cleanness. The band has also adopted a more "hair metal" look to relate to the party induced music, rather than there more "emo" appearance in "Stand Up And Scream". So personally the more simplistic songs are a down side but they do give a nice melodic tune to listen to. Their new album (depending on what edition you got) also includes mixed tracks of their songs. The lyrics are mostly based around the theme of partying but also feel to have a more in depth theme to them, so the lyrics shouldn't be to discouraged.
Asking Alexandria - Reckless And Relentless: 7/10
