In This Moment, California’s sensational metalcore artists are bringing their electrifying sounds to the Rebel (Sound Academy)!
In This Moment was formed (under the moniker Dying Star) in Los Angeles in 2005 by singer Maria Brink and guitarist Chris Howorth. They recruited drummer Jeff Fabb, guitarist Blake Bunzel, and bassist Josh Newell to complete the band’s line up. Their musical style can be best described as a blend of metalcore (a broad fusion genre of extreme metal and hardcore punk, noted for its use of breakdowns, which are slow, intense passages that are conducive to moshing), alternative metal (a genre that infuses heavy metal with influences from alternative rock and other genres not normally associated with metal), industrial metal, gothic metal, nu metal (a form of alternative metal that combines elements of heavy metal music with elements of other music genres such as hip hop, alternative rock, funk, and grunge), hard rock, and post hardcore. The band’s been through many line up changes over the years and it currently consists of Maria (lead vocals and piano), Chris (lead guitar and backing vocals), Travis Johnson (bass and backing vocals), Randy Weitzel (rhythm guitar and backing vocals), and Kent Diimmel (drums). They’ve had a stellar career with 5 studio albums, 1 live album, 1 compilation album, 13 music videos, and 13 singles.
Don’t miss your chance to see these artists add a unique touch to metalcore!
