Review of Asking Alexandria in Atlanta, GA at the Masquerade on October 29, 2010 on the For We Are Many Tour with All That Remains.

Set list:
If You Can’t Ride Two Horses At Once, You Should Get Out Of The Circus
A Prophecy
A Single Moment Of Sincerity
I Was Once, Possibly, Maybe, Perhaps A Cowboy King
Hey There Mr. Brooks
Final Episode (Let’s Change The Channel)

If there’s one thing to be said about the five Brits in Asking Alexandria, it’s that they know how to put on a show.  On their stop of the For We Are Many tour in Atlanta supporting All That Remains, it’s clear that they have one purpose: wreak havoc and leave everyone wanting even more.  Kicking off their set with an anticipation-building Alerion, the atmosphere in the room is full-on excitement with a dark tinge from the horror-themed beginning of the song.  With heavy guitars starting in along with frontman Danny Worsnop’s appearance on stage screaming the words “Fuck This”, the crowd erupts into insanity and mosh pits break out everywhere.  It might be hard to understand why this band has grown so substantially within a very short period of time, that is until you experience first-hand the energy that they put into their live show.  From the mosh-anthems such as A Prophecy and A Single Moment Of Sincerity to the sing-along crowd pleasers like If You Can’t Ride Two Horses At Once… and The Final Episode, these guys put the same dedication into every note that they hit.  From the walls of death to pure violence that the crowd churns up during the entire set, it’s easy to tell that these guys are here to cause a scene and have a good time; not to mention making everyone else have a good time, too.  With their new song Breathless thrown into the mix, it is not hard to tell that Asking Alexandria have a bright future in front of them.  Their new disc, Reckless And Relentless, is due for release in March 2011.
