For two out of the four days of the sold out Shiprocked Cruise sponsored by Monster Energy Drinks, In This Moment stole the attention of the 2000 fans both on the main Monster Energy Pool Deck Stage and at the Stardust Theater. What made it more momentus is that this is their third [year] installment with Shiprocked which proves their ever-growing popularity with the cruise company as well as in the metal scene.
Cruise dates of January 26-30, 2014 on the Norwegian Pearl, a full ship of metal music fans rushed to have the best seats in the house at these nearly intimate sets to watch singer, Maria Brink, up close and personal to see what kind of show she will put out for the evening.
With hits from 'Adrenalize,' 'Blood Legion,' Beautiful Tragedy' and 'Whore,' Brink was always calling out to the fans, making sure she had their attention, asking them to scream for her to let her know they are there, to which the fans loudly roared back, horns up and lips singing along.
A special feature with the show on this cruise was the fans themselves. Many had come out dressed in band shirts, some in similar outfits and some had 'Whore' hats. However, one group of fans dressed up as the entire band and dancers uniformly. (photo in the gallery) Brink, as well as the other members in the band asked to have pictures taken with the fans. Definitely memories of a lifetime.
Other bands on the ship included, Five Finger Death Punch, Three Days Grace, Papa Roach, Century Media label mates Butcher Babies, Sevendust, Wilson, Scorpion Child, and several others totaling 22 bands as well as hosts and comedians.
In this Moment had just completed their album tour cycle and will be returning home for studio time. They are scheduled for some festival dates in the coming months.
