Music Monday: In This Moment, “Beautiful Tragedy”

Funny story about this band: my husband and I were in a local record shop looking for this new heavy metal band with a female lead vocalist, and we were sure the band’s name was “Beautiful Tragedy” but we couldn’t find the album anywhere, and finally we figured out that we’d flipped the name of the song with the name of the band, and the real name of the band was In This Moment.

So we go to pay for the CD, and while we’re doing it, we ask about tickets for the upcoming Lacuna Coil concert. The guy ringing us up is giving us WEIRD LOOKS, but we get our CD, we get our tickets, and we go.

And then we learn, when we get home, that there would be three opening acts for Lacuna Coil: Stolen Babies, Within Temptation (who you listened to last week), and — you guessed it — In This Moment.

So that was a happy, but slightly embarrassing coincidence. But the concert rocked, this band rocked, so I thought I’d treat you to their debut song, which encapsulates what I like best about this band: strong melodies with a solid dash of metal screaming. The later albums are sometimes more metal than I’d like (with some questionable lyrics), but their songs with strong melodies win me over every time. If you like this song, but don’t want to get TOO metal, you should pick up their sophomore album, The Dream.

But first, let’s get hear their debut song, shall we?

Like it? Love it? Hate it? Sound off below!

Reminder: Music Monday is about the music, not the videos. Videos are just the medium I’m using to share the music, and some videos aren’t actually videos at all. Enjoy the songs, but if YouTube forces you to watch some sort of advertisement before you can get to the music, please be patient.
