Asking Alexandria are a British rock band from York, North Yorkshire, consisting of guitarists Ben Bruce and Cameron Liddell, drummer James Cassells, lead vocalist Danny Worsnop, and bassist Sam Bettley. Initially formed in 2006 by Ben Bruce, the band officially established as a six-piece in 2008 with the founding line-up consisting of Bruce, Worsnop, Cassells, Liddell, Joe Lancaster, and Ryan Binns. After the departure of Lancaster and Binns, as well as the recruitment of bassist Sam Bettley in 2009, the band released their debut album Stand Up and Scream (2009). The band released two studio albums Reckless & Relentless (2011) and From Death to Destiny (2013), before the departure of Worsnop in January 2015. He was replaced by Denis Stoff and the band released The Black (2016). Stoff departed from the band in October that year, and Worsnop subsequently returned to the band. The band released their self-titled fifth album in late 2017, which was a marked stylistic departure from their previous works. Their recent sixth studio album, Like a House on Fire, which was released on 15 May 2020, shows the group’s continuity of a more straight forward and melodic hard rock sound, while also shift into different genres. Here are all of Asking Alexandria albums ranked.

5. Reckless & Relentless (2011)
“That is really all there is to say about this album. The simplicity is key to its success. The production quality and Sturgis at work makes this album the strong hitting singalong you wont want to put down. Every song is wonderful from start to finish and the lyrics tell a great story which reminds me of John Milton’s-Paradise Lost.”
4. From Death To Destiny (2013)
” The screams are less frequent and Danny’s clean vocals sound a bit different than they used to, which depending on who you are could be a turn off. The reason that the album works so well for me is that the band has matured the same way that I have, shifting to a more melodic and less chaotic style. Whatever your preference, at least give it a shot. There’s sure to be something you like.”

3. The Black (2016)
“This is a sick album. The new vocalist sounds incredible and the music is on point. I’m sure the new live shows will be just as incredible. The chaos surrounding Danny was a draw for me I must admit. t’s fun, catchy, and has great production behind it and sounds great in the high-end infiniti car audio system in the ol’ vehicle.”
2. Asking Alexandra (2017)
“Definitely a different sound. However, I personally think this album is AWESOME. I really like Alone in a Room, Where did it go?, Into the fire, and Empire is wearing on me. If you listened to Danny while he was with We Are Harlot a few of the songs remind me of that vibe.”
1. Stand Up And Scream (2009)
“This was their debut and it rocked. Incorporating techno sound with their metal crosses boundaries few are willing to dabble with. I think it is amazing. It is for the most part metal which is great. But again it has some industrial sounds that are awesome. The best part is they don’t sound English!”
