Drum mix sounding particularly epic on this one, I actually added a second drum mic to the mix, one from DPA and now a second one from Beyer dynamic that sits inside the bass drum!! really beefs it up!

Album: Asking Alexandria
Released: December 15, 2017
Asking Alexandria are an English rock band from York, North Yorkshire. Ben Bruce, the band’s lead guitarist, originally formed the band in Dubai, United Arab Emirates in 2006. The band’s original line-up consisted of completely different members compared to that of the band’s line-up from 2008 and released their debut EP, Tomorrow. Hope. Goodbye. in 2006, then followed up with their debut album titled The Irony of Your Perfection in 2007. After realizing he wouldn’t be able to achieve international success in Dubai, he moved back to England, Nottingham in 2008 and reassembled the band with new members from the local area, including lead singer Danny Worsnop, of which he had moved into his flat apartment in York. When asked why he chose that particular name, he explained that “‘Most bands have a pretty shit band name, so I just came up with something. I came up with Alexandria as a human name, because people relate to humans.” although the reason for using the word ‘asking’ is not explained.
All of the band’s members have expressed their passion for 1980s rock music, and demonstrated it with releases such as the Life Gone Wild EP featuring covers of two Skid Row songs or the Under the Influence: A Tribute to the Legends of Hard Rock EP featuring covers of songs by bands such as Journey, Mötley Crüe, Whitesnake and Def Leppard. Their third studio album From Death to Destiny is heavily influenced by such bands. Some of their favorite artists include Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Mötley Crüe, Sebastian Bach, Skid Row and Van Halen, but they also take influence from modern bands such as Slipknot and Avenged Sevenfold.
