In This Moment has grown from the stomp and thunder of a nu-metal band with a screaming coquette up front to a brazen theatrical display with a goddess at the helm. Formed in 2005 by singer Maria Brink, the band initially seethed on stage with little or no production other than its brutal metal fronted by a woman slant. Now taking a page from the Alice Cooper and Rob Zombie school of horror, the band is forging a new metal rant with awesome set design and song specific choreography. It's a spectacular spectacle and it's a show for those who like it and need it that way.
In This Moment plays with Butcher Babies and Upon a Burning Body on Sunday, April 19, at Water Street Music Hall, 204 North Water Street. 7 p.m. $25-$30. waterstreetmusic.com; inthismomentofficial.com.
