Biography

Change. Some people welcome it. Others resist it. Some seek it out. Others fear the unknown. Sometimes it happens beyond our control. Whatever one's mindset, change is inevitable. The challenge comes with how we face it and deal with the consequences. For vocalist Maria Brink and guitarist Chris Howorth, the duo at the heart of In This Moment, change came unexpectedly when they found themselves rebuilding the walls around their foundation. Stripped down to their essence, the core of In This Moment is on fire with their fourth album, aptly titled Blood. "I knew that I wanted this album to bring out elements we've never shown before. This alluring, darker, sinful side of us that no one has ever seen," says Brink. "We wanted to find something new within ourselves, and with this album, I'm definitely the boldest I've ever been. I'm not trying to push boundaries. It's not a conscious thing. It's a natural artistic place." Brink and Howorth began tracking Blood with producer Kevin Churko late last year at The Hideout Studio in Las Vegas, their 3rd with Churko at the helm. "In January [2012], we began writing and recording more songs," says Howorth. "Kevin put no limits or restrictions on us. There was no setting the clock this time. He just wanted us to record until the songs were the best they could be." The powerful title track, "Blood," was the first one written for the album and it's one of Howorth's favorites. "It really set the tone for the whole record and kicked a bunch of doors down," he says. "I think it's a really unique song that doesn't sound like anything I've heard before, and I'm really proud of that. My other fave is "Hello." I like it because it's so heavy and melodic at the same time. Crushing riffs and huge choruses never get old to me. This song is In This Moment 101. Our fans will love it."

    Motionless In White aren't a band, they're a lifestyle. Since forming in Scranton, Pennsylvania, in 2005, this Gothic-inspired metalcore act have captivated audiences with their aggressive music and arresting aesthetic, but nothing could prepare audiences for their third full-length Reincarnate, an album that truly defies categorization and establishes them as one of the most exciting acts in rock today. “Everything has to fit my very specific vision for what I want to accomplish but having these people help with things I never would have been able to think of on my own was fantastic,”the band's malevolent frontman Chris Motionless explains. In fact Reincarnate saw the group’s current lineup of keyboardist Josh Balz, bassist Devin “Ghost” Sola and guitarists Ryan Sitkowski and Ricky Horror becoming more collaborative while still remaining to be Chris’ brainchild. “I’ve always predominantly done the writing and programming for Motionless In White but with [2012’s] Infamous and Reincarnate, Ricky had a big hand in it as well,” Chris explains. “I guess you could call us partners in writing for the band because we write both write everything musically."

    Within Avatar’s diverse songs, a steady focus on the fluid and organic power of the riff (recalling the thunderous foresight of heavy metal’s original wizards, Black Sabbath) takes flight combined with an adventurous sprit veering off into the astral planes of the psychedelic atmosphere conjured by pioneers like Pink Floyd back in the day. Avatar has found a footing that combines the best of rock n’ roll, hard rock and heavy metal’s past, present and future into an overall artistic presentation that is thought-provoking, challenging and altogether enchantingly electric. With the grandiose showmanship of American professional wrestling, the snake oil salesmanship of early 20th century vaudevillian troubadours and the kinetically superheroic power of early Kiss, Avatar lays waste to lesser mortals with ease. Whether somebody gets their rocks off listening to Satyricon or System of a Down, they’ll find something suitably deranged here.

  • Gemini Syndrome

    Gemini Syndrome encapsulates both ends of the spectrum. The band conjures ethereal alternative melodies and then tempers them with gnashing, guttural distortion. These five musicians—Aaron, Rich, Mike, AP, and Brian— all from diverse musical bands and worlds converged when the guys discovered that the spiritual musings of Aaron melded with Rich, AP and Mikes taste for dark and melodious rhythms. It was when Aaron’s fascination for the illuminati and mysticism caught Brian’s attention and sealed the unbreakable bond that would then extend between each of the members. They began residing under one roof, to live, sleep, and breathe music together communally as a band in the truest sense. After some early demos and cutting their teeth on the road, the group retreated to Las Vegas to complete what would become their first offering with Kevin Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, Ozzy Osbourne, In This Moment).
