For some reason, I find women that scare me unusually sexy. Probably why, to me, Maria Brink is hot as balls in Louisiana in August. Women that look like that are not supposed to growl and scream and grimice like that (excuse me, I'm having a moment). And she can sing. Really sing (any doubts, check out the acoustic performance at the end of the stream of videos below).

Since 2005, Maria and her band In This Moment, have recorded four albums (Beautiful Tragedy, The Dream, A Star-Crossed Wasteland, and Blood - due out next week) and performed on several tours including The Hottest Chicks in Metal Tour 2007 with Lacuna Coil, Ozzfest in the summers of 2007 and 2008, Megadeth, and the Rob Zombie and Ozzy Osbourne tour. Currently, they're part of the Uproar Festival, which hits Dallas on September 16th.

Can't make it to Dallas? No worries, as In This Moment bring their mix of metalcore and hard rock to The Riverside Warehouse on October 30th. A great way to kick off Halloween! To give you an indication of what we've got to look forward to, suck down some ITM videos below:
