In This Moment
n This Moment was formed by Maria Brink (vocals) and Chris Howorth (guitars) in 2005. After Jeff Fabb (drums) soon joined they began their performances under the name Dying Star. Unhappy with their musical direction, they changed their name to In This Moment and recruited two new band members in the form of guitarist Blake Bunzel and bassist Josh Newell. But by the end of 2005, Newell left and was replaced by Pascual Romero, who in turn was later replaced by Jesse Landry.
Performing a mixture of alternative metal, industrial metal, nu metal, metalcore, gothic metal and hard rock, their debut album, Beautiful Tragedy, arrived in 2007, with the follow-up, The Dream quickly following the following year to debut at number 73 on the Billboard 200. A Star-Crossed Wasteland (2010) and Blood (2012) followed; the latter debuted at number 15.
Coming in with an 8 was their fifth album, Black Widow (2014), while Ritual (2017) managed a 23.
The band membership has changed several times. Landry was replaced by Kyle Konkiel in 2009 and Konkiel was replaced by Travis Johnson in 2010. Jeff Fabb and Blake Bunzel both left the band in 2011, to be replaced by Tom Hane and Randy Weitzel respectively. In March 2016, Tom Hane (drums) announced his departure from the band and was replaced by Kent Diimmel (ex-3 By Design).
