EDITORS’ NOTES

The Los Angeles band In This Moment conjure anthemic confessionals that sound as though they’re emerging from the ruins of a dark, decaying cityscape. Kinetic singer/lyricist Maria Brink and band play up various influences (industrial, Southern gothic, and Alice Cooper) against themes that canvas everything from child abuse to avarice, all submersed in a fierce (and sometimes tender) postpunk, post-metal, electronic carriage. There’s glittery stomp (“Dirty Pretty”), a horror-show requiem (“Natural Born Sinner”), ironic tease (“Sex Metal Barbie”), teenage redemption (“Out of Hell”), and a slithery duet about obsession with Shinedown singer Brent Smith (“Sexual Hallucination”).

About In This Moment

Born of a chance meeting and the innate musical rapport established between vocalist Maria Brink and lead guitarist Chris Howorth, In This Moment quickly grew from local cult favorites performing in Los Angeles clubs to a MySpace phenomenon before landing a deal with Century Media. Along the way, the group was fleshed out by rhythm guitarist Blake Bunzel, bassist Jesse Landry, and drummer Jeff Fabb; embarked on several U.S. tours with the likes of Diecast and 36 Crazyfists; and gradually honed its melodic metalcore songwriting for the recording of the 2007 debut album Beautiful Tragedy, which was supported via the band's inclusion in the Hot Chicks of Metal Tour, featuring Lacuna Coil and Within Temptation, among others. Debuting at the number 37 slot on the Billboard Top 200, The Dream arrived in 2008, followed by A Star-Crossed Wasteland in 2010 and the electro-charged Blood in 2012. The group's fifth studio long-player, 2014's Atlantic-issued Black Widow, marked In This Moment's major-label debut. In June 2017, the band dropped the single "Roots" in anticipation of the release of its sixth full-length, Ritual, which arrived the following month. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia
