In This Moment

in_this_momentIn This Moment is an American metal band formed in 2005. By mid-2005, the band recorded demos and posted them on MySpace, where they generated an internet following. Rob “Blasko” Nicholson, the bassist for Ozzy Osbourne became the bands manager after discovering them through MySpace. By the end of the 2005, they had generated a fan base through internet marketing and do-it-yourself touring. This sparked an interest from Century Media Records, and a worldwide record deal followed. The band released their debut album Beautiful Tragedy on March 20, 2007. The quick success of the album pushed them on a few high profile tours including The Hottest Chicks in Metal Tour 2007 with Lacuna Coil, Ozzfest in the summers of 2007 and 2008, Megadeth, and the Rob Zombie and Ozzy Osbourne tour. In September 30, 2008, they released their second album entitled The Dream.

They have released two albums to date, both on Century Media Records. The band’s sound is recognizable mainly for vocalist Maria Brink’s use of a combination of screaming and clean vocals.
