ASKING ALEXANDRIA Frontman Talks To METAL HAMMER About 'From Death To Destiny' (Video)

Vocalist Danny Worsnop of the British metalcore act ASKING ALEXANDRIA recently stopped by the U.K. offices of Metal Hammer magazine to discuss the band's third album, "From Death To Destiny". Check out the chat below.

"From Death To Destiny" sold 38,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 6 on The Billboard 200 chart. This achievement not only marks the group's highest-charting debut ever, but also Sumerian Records' highest first-week sales to date.

"From Death To Destiny" debuted at No. 1 on the U.K. rock and metal chart. It's another first for the band, and it's particularly special for the band to garner so much support throughout their home country.

Commented ASKING ALEXANDRIA guitarist Ben Bruce: "It's taken long enough! It wasn't because we were being lazy, but because we wanted it to be perfect. 'From Death To Destiny' is our third album and we wanted to make sure we'd bring out the best possible record we could."

He continued: "This is our biggest sounding record and alongside the classic ASKING ALEXANDRIA stuff — the breakdown sections, heavy sections, fast sections — we've thrown a lot of new influences in there. It's a very diverse album and I think people who pigeonholed us are going to realize they were wrong when they hear it."

Issued on August 6 via Sumerian Records, "From Death To Destiny" was recorded with renowned producer Joey Sturgis (THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, EMMURE).
