In This Moment’s Maria Brink on The MetalSucks Podcast #336
In This Moment vocalist Maria Brink is our guest this week. We discuss the theme behind the band’s new album, Mother, how the death of family members influenced the writing and recording of the record, the visual aspect of In This Moment’s live presentation and the difficulty of making that work on a budget, how collaborating with different singers is always exciting for her, the possibility of doing a video for the band’s cover of Queen’s “We Will Rock You” with Lzzy Hale and Taylor Momsen, how the coronavirus is inspiring her to use technology to reach her fanbase, and the possibility of the band doing a live streaming performance.
Petar, Brandon, and Sylvia discuss the recent drive-in concert in Denmark and whether that could work for metal bands, Randy Blythe’s statement that social distancing efforts would never be successful at a metal show, Bad Religion’s decision to cancel instead of postpone their touring plans so fans can get ticket refunds, Lars Ulrich’s statement that Metallica could write a new album during this time, and The Black Dahlia Murder charting on Billboard.
Songs: In This Moment – “The In-Between,” “As Above, So Below,” Paradise Lost – “Ghosts”
