Asking Alexandria's Ben Bruce hates metal elitists


Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce was recently interviewed by Metal Wani, you can read some excerpts below.

About metal elitists who dismiss his band because of their sound, he said: "You can sit and complain as much as you want but the fact of the matter is we’re flying the flag for metal whether you like us or not. The fact that we are maybe a little bit more commercially acceptable and a bit more palatable means we’re getting radio play which is just helping open people’s eyes to being introduced to more metal bands."

He continued: "If you’re going to sit in your bedroom and be a bitch and just argue and moan about the fact you don’t like our band, no one is going to discover metal and eventually we’re all going to die and there’s going to be those elitists sat in their room going, ‘Why are there no new metal bands for me to listen to?’ It’s because you’re a fucking asshole and ruined it you fucking idiot."
