The band is fresh off an epic, show-opening performance of “Black Wedding,” which is a duet with Judas Priest legend Rob Halford that lives on Ritual, at the first-ever Loudwire Music Awards. Billboard deemed it “powerful.” Watch it here.
Additionally, In This Moment’s charismatic singer Maria Brink currently graces the cover of Outburn.
Ritual arrived this July and produced the Top 10 Active Rock single “Oh Lord.”
The album enjoyed a huge Top 25 debut on the Billboard Top 200 chart and a Top 10 debut on the Top Current Albums Chart. The album landed at #1 on the Hard Music Chart, #3 on the Rock Chart, #9 on the Top Current Albums Chart, #10 on the Digital Albums Chart, and #23 on the Top 200.
In This Moment are currently in the middle of the second leg of their wildly successfully “Half God, Half Devil” headline tour, with support from Of Mice & Men and opening act Avatar. Tour plans for 2018 will be announced soon.
Press praise for Ritual is as follows.
“Maria Brink possesses one of the most powerful and compelling voices, male or female, in the modern rock genre… Sonic and emotional opulence has always come naturally to In This Moment, and Ritual doesn’t disappoint, as it struts about in the usual dark finery… its moody charms are administered with both muscle and grace.” — All Music Guide
“Ritual takes the qualities we enjoy about the band, and spins them in delightful ways.” — New Noise Magazine
“Brink has an outstanding voice with a lot of power and texture, and when unleashed is a potent force…
Ritual is their most mature album, especially lyrically, but still musically adventurous.” — Loudwire
“At this point, In This Moment is unstoppable.” — Blabbermouth
“Ritual is a spell that you will want to fall under again and again. This is what it means to evolve organically.” — Cryptic Rock
“Ritual is a blast from beginning to end.” — Screamer
In This Moment also dropped their sonically arresting and dramatic reimagining of Phil Collins’ beloved ’80s classic “In the Air Tonight,” which lives on Ritualand has been incorporated into the band’s live set. In This Moment have truly made the song their own, thanks to a captivating rendition that both preserves and updates all the tension and release of the original. Listen here.
