British melodic emocore unit Asking Alexandria were initially formed (and quickly disbanded) by singer-guitarist Ben Bruce in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in the mid-'00s. Despite the fact that they recorded an album, Bruce broke up the band and returned to England, eventually contacting old friends and launching an entirely new unit in 2008. The two bands share a name but, according to Bruce, have no connection to one another. The second iteration of Asking Alexandria released its debut in 2009, Stand Up and Scream. Combining the grumbling chug of death metal with high-speed runs, mall-ready radio-metal choruses and the dancefloor moves of crabcore bands (read: synths), Asking Alexandria position themselves squarely in the no-man's land between earnest metalcore and the party-mongering of such contemporaries as Brokencyde and 3OH!3. The EP Life Gone Wild (featuring a pair of Skid Row covers) appeared in 2010, and their second album, Reckless and Relentless, surfaced in early 2011.

Live at Wacken '09
Bring Me The Horizon
Runtime: 40 minFronted by a tattooed clothing designer and influenced by death metal, grindcore, and emo, Bring Me the Horizon aren't the average deathcore band. The group was formed in 2004 from the ashes of several Sheffield-based outfits, with the 2003 Disney film Pirates of the Caribbean serving as the inspiration for the band's name. Singer Oliver Sykes, guitarists Lee Malia and Curtis Ward, bassist Matt Kean, and drummer Matt Nicholls initially established their own label, Thirty Days of Night, to release their debut EP, 2005's This Is What the Edge of Your Seat Was Made For. Upon signing to the higher-profile label Visible Noise (whose roster also included Bullet for My Valentine and Lostprophets), they reissued the EP to a wider audience. Bring Me the Horizon's full-length debut, Count Your Blessings, appeared in October 2006, with an American release following one year later courtesy of Epitaph Records.
Live at The O2 Academy
Bullet For My Valentine
Runtime: 1 hr 9 minRunning red hot on the heels of their fourth album 'Temper Temper', Bullet For My Valentine rolled into Birmingham's O2 Academy like a tank, armed with burning anthems like 'Your Betrayal', 'Tears Don't Fall' and 'Waking The Demon' alongside newer cuts 'Temper Temper' and 'Riot'. With big ambitions and bigger riffs, the band have always had world domination fairly in their sights, but they've never been more on target than now. With album sales over four million and a monster legion of fans, the lads have rightly earned the tag of "the best British metal band to emerge in years" (as Q Magazine dubbed them). Lock and load people, it's Bullet time!
