This is In This Moment.
They are heavy enough to be in the broad sweep of of the genre called, ‘metal’… but with a highly polished pop sheen.
And lots of visuals.
Hey… if you had a lead singer that looks like Maria Brink, you’d be foolish NOT to consider the visuals… y’know what I’m saying?
But in all fairness, the girl has some pipes.
When she’s not busy with cos-play, she puts in some amazing vocal performances that has earned her a legion of female (and male) fans.
Find me a heavy metal fan girl… she will know who Maria Brink is.
The L.A. based unit has been releasing music since 2005… and have just dropped a carnival mirror-drenched piece of eye candy for a song called, ‘Sex Metal Barbie’.
“I am very excited about the release of the ‘Sex Metal Barbie’ video,” Brink recently said in an interview with Loudwire. “Directing it was a liberating experience. When you write music that you are very passionate about being able to bring the visual aspect of it alive with the music is what ties everything together. ‘Sex Metal Barbie’ is all about rising above hate. I used other people’s hatred to create this song and concepts.”
She adds, “I really wanted this video to convey that other people’s perceptions of us are just their own twisted and warped views. I wanted a sarcastic and delusional visual to bring this video alive. Lastly I want to thank all the people who feel compelled to express negativity toward us for all the inspiration. I couldn’t have done it without them.”
