Maria Brink's back with lots of screams. What else do you need to know?
Lying somewhere between Arch Enemy on a camomile tea venture and a pissed off Paramore, In This Moment may well be onto something on their third full-length. Ballsy frontwoman Maria Brink seems to have all bases covered, along with her competent cohorts – and the result is rather intoxicating. Their latest full-length mixes up metalcore savagery with some quite awesome chapters of neck-hair tugging melody, and it’s infectious. Tracks such as ‘The Promise’ (aptly named) reek of a band with credibility but with commercial pull, and this, their best album to date, may well prove to be a surprise package in 2010.
