Rock fans can expect an incredible blend of genres from In This Moment. And this blending of genres and experimentation has led to some of the most exciting songs of the past two decades. But because of this, it’s not always easy to choose a few songs as “essential listening”.

But here are our picks for what you HAVE to hear.

First, check out “The Gun Show”. From the very aggressive opening, you know you’re in for a treat. Maria Brink delivers exceptional screams through the song. It’s also got a heavy sound and is a song all about self-respect. It’s a powerful song that has to be heard to be believed.

Next be sure to listen to “Prayers”. This song from 2007’s Beautiful Tragedy is metalcore 101. Maria Brink worked through an injury to see this song finished and her determination paid off. The song was featured in 2007’s The Hills Have Eyes and peaked at #40 on the Billboard Hot 100.


“Adrenalize” is an incredibly sexy song that hits the sensual power that metal can have. With an almost playfully purred set of lyrics and a killer music video, this song was going to be a winner. It earned it’s peak performance at #20 on the Billboard Hot 100.
