In This Moment Biography
Few individuals throughout this world have the drive to create their own fate in life, resiliently defying all obstacles in their way. IN THIS MOMENT are a group of five people on the path to doing just that, with an eye on carving out their own destiny and refusing to let others deter their sole mission of becoming the biggest band in the world. Their highly anticipated debut album, Beautiful Tragedy, produced by Eric Rachel (Atreyu, God Forbid), is a dynamic opus that proves they are well beyond their years.
The Southern California-based unit formed in 2005 when Chris Howorth (guitars) and Maria Brink (vocals) met via mutual friends and immediately realized they had similar interests. The duo quickly wrote five songs and called the project IN THIS MOMENT. Jeff Fabb (drums), who was playing in another band with Howorth, soon joined the fold, and the three of them entered the studio to record their first demo. The new tracks garnered overwhelmingly positive responses on their MySpace page, and the word started to spread. Blake Bunzel (guitars) and Jesse Landry (bass) rounded out the lineup, and soon their new material caught the attention of Century Media Records, who enthusiastically signed them to a worldwide deal.
IN THIS MOMENT quickly became one of the most talked-about artists within their local scene due to the intensity of frontwoman Brink and an undying work ethic. Their organic buzz quickly carried over to the band’s MySpace page, with over 125,000 friends and more than a million plays as of the end of 2006. Their invigorating mixture of metal and hard rock is sure to catch the attention of fans of acts ranging from AFI and My Chemical Romance to Bleeding Through and Atreyu. The diversity and depth of their songwriting is refreshing, and their musical prowess is simply undeniable.
IN THIS MOMENT closed out 2006 with a three-week national tour that saw them play alongside a number of different artists such as 3 Inches of Blood, 36 Crazyfists, Sworn Enemy and labelmates Diecast. The quintet kicked off the New Year with a bang, joining Kittie, Walls of Jericho, Dead To Fall and 36 Crazyfists for a massive U.S. tour.
In 2007, IN THIS MOMENT begins to write their own unique and exhilarating chapter in the hard rock/metal genre, laying the foundation for an extremely bright future.

AMAZING!!!! | Reviewer: Robert | 3/23/09
Been a fan of In This Moment since they started on mySpace. have both their studio albums and think they are 2 of the greatest albums I have ever heard. The song The Promise:Into The Light is a very deep and heartfelt song that only Maria Brink could sing as beautifully as she does. Keep up the amazing work and continue to put out amazing albums!!!

In This Moment ROCKS! they're awesome. they're totally original. They sound like no one else. Which is one of the reasons I love them so much. Maria's vocals are amazing. The way she switches it on and off like that is really awesome. No one can do it like she does. Those lyrics are so inspirational and powerful. And the music... WOW. those guitars are unbelievable! Can't get enough of In This Moment!
Never heard anything Like it before | Reviewer: Tara | 9/18/07
I think Maria's music comes from the heart and the fact she is a girl and she can change her voice like that, being able to scream that way. I've never heard any girl besides the singer Kittie sing like that and honestly to me Maria sings better than she does, my three favorite songs by In This Moment would have to be beautiful Tragedy and Daddy's little Angel and This Moment.....So I just wanted to say I like this music and this band because I believe in it and I feel their music comes form the heart.......
