Asking Alexandria has scored their second top-10 album on the Billboard 200.
The group’s third studio album, From Death to Destiny , secured the #6 slot this week with just under 38,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Asking Alexandria’s 2011 release, Reckless & Relentless , was their first album to hit the top 10 on the tally. It debuted at #9 on the list with 31,000 copies sold its first week out.
“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,” guitarist Ben Bruce recently told the U.K.’s Metal Hammer about the album. “It’s a very diverse album and I think people who pigeonholed us are going to realize they were wrong when they hear it.”
