In This Moment has been rightly acclaimed as one of the most combustible and emotionally invigorating bands in modern metal. Fueled by singer Maria Brink's powerful voice and provocative persona, the band has received steadily growing praise and commercial success for its idiosyncratic melding of raw power, sonic experimentation, and widescreen songcraft. "BLOOD" – In The Moment's fourth and most recent full-length release – made a spectacular chart debut upon its 2012 arrival, entering the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #15 while also coming in at #1 on the "Top Hard Rock Albums" ranking. The album proved a breakthrough, spawning such top 20 multi-format rock radio hits as "Whore," "Adrenalize," and the top 10 title track.
Like any truly great hard rock band, In This Moment has spent much of its decade-long existence on the road, building an increasingly passionate fan following via headline tours and support runs alongside such like-minded acts as fellow Atlantic recording groups Halestorm and Shinedown. What's more, In This Moment has taken part in a long list of blockbuster festivals and multi-artist tours, with highlights including Ozzfest, Vans Warped Tour, Music As A Weapon V, Mayhem Festival 2010, Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival 2012, Carnival of Madness 2013, Australia's Soundwave 2012, and the UK's legendary Download Festival. Most recently, the band was among the stars at KNOTFEST US 2014, the heavy music destination festival hosted by the one and only Slipknot.
