So I finally got around to watching Asking Alexandria’s 15 minute short film “Through Sin + Self Destruction” and I have to say I was quite surprised by it.
The video consists of the 3 songs “Reckless & Relentless,” “To The Stage” and “Dear Insanity” from their latest album and has a story that ties all the songs together somewhat. The story itself just follows the band around showing the crazy lifestyle they lived while on the sunset strip for a show. Everything is highly over exaggerated but still follows the outline of the antics they get themselves into. It is interesting to watch for the most part but from the second half from Danny’s near death experience onwards is the best part with it ending with basically just part of a live song from them.
Without credits it only lasts a little over 10 minutes so it doesn’t really ever get the chance to start to drag on and we even get a few guest appearances during it. You get to see Sebastian Bach for a minute and you also get to see Johnny Plague (Winds Of Plague) and Frankie P (Emmure) for a second. One of the best parts is the outtakes at the end though. It really shows some of the good times they had making it.
Overall if you aren’t a fan of the band or their music then you won’t like it at all. If you are it’s worth the watch.
