Coming into this, I really had no idea who In This Moment were. I had only heard one song made by them, seen one music video and that’s about it. That being said, after Hail The Yeti, Kyng, and Motionless In White did their respective sets, I was ready to see what In This Moment was about and what they had to offer.

The first thing that I noticed was the props and the stage production. Most the venues that were picked out for The Hellpop Tour are mid size venues. So I was legitimately surprised by how much thought was put into stage production and how everything looked.

From the masked dancers, to Maria’s costumes, everything was spot on and made you feel like you were within Maria’s wonderland filled with nurses sporting syringes, and soldiers sporting guns. It was enough to set the tone of what they were going for and didn’t clutter the stage.

The next thing that shocked me was Maria’s vocals. It’s really hard to find bands/musicians that sound exactly like they sound on their album or even better than on their album. Maria is the latter. Maria’s vocals are nothing short of amazing. The range that she possesses is just out of this world, as she goes from screaming vocals in “Adrenalize” to soft melodic notes in “Into the Light”.

The band opened with “Adrenalize” and went through 11 songs, ending with “Blood” the single off their new album. In This Moment are not an act to be missed, and you can catch them on the rest of their tour dates or next year when they continue on with The Hellpop Tour part 2, featuring Hail The Yeti, Devour The Day, and Butcher Babies.
