A lot of people tell me that I like “scary” music.  If this is something you hear a lot, then you’re going to love In This Moment. What’s better than screaming guitar riffs, powerful lyrics, and a tall, hot blonde with some sick screaming pipes?  That’s what I thought. Fronted by the ever-so-gorgeous Maria Brink, In This Moment has been tearing up the music industry since 2005.  Get this, Ozzy Osbourne’s bassist also became their band manager that winter.  It didn’t take them long to get picked up by Century Media Records.

Maria’s vocals range from a sweet, sensual whisper to an earth-shattering, gritty scream to give you the best of heaven and hell.  However, there is one element to the band’s music that remains consistent, and that is the deep messages behind their song lyrics. In my experience, especially with the “Blood” album that dropped in 2012, you can literally feel the raw angst, love, and hate hidden beneath each note.  The emotion can be felt not only from Maria’s voice, but the captivating guitar riffs and the wildly thunderous drum lines.  Each song is contagious, and you’ll find it to be rather difficult to resist cranking up the volume and rocking out.  In This Moment will definitely get your “blood” pumping.
