IN THIS MOMENT's MARIA BRINK: 'Just Being Sexy Will Get You Nowhere'

Barbara Caserta of Linea Rock and Radio Lombardia recently conducted an interview with IN THIS MOMENT vocalist Maria Brink and guitarist Chris Howorth. You can now watch the chat below.

Asked how she feels when she is being consistently named one of the "hottest chicks in hard rock" by the editors of Revolver magazine and metal fans alike, Brink said: "When I think of myself, I don't think I'm one of the 'hottest chicks in the world.' I have all kinds of insecurities. I don't think it's about… Like, even in our stage performance, it's vulnerable at certain times, it's sad, it's raging… It's not just about being a sex symbol, or being sexy to appease everyone. I'm not about that. I do something because I'm comfortable in it, but it's mine and nobody else's; nobody can touch it and nobody can have it. And it has to have also… It can't just be about being sexy. It has to have all the emotions involved, I think, on the album and in the live show. Because if you do all sex, you lose all of the other beautiful things that should be a part of it… And just being sexy will get you nowhere. You could be the sexiest woman in the world, and if you can't sing, if you're not an artist and you can't create a show, you can't have power in front of a crowd, you're gonna crash and burn. So if you just try to rely on that, you're not gonna get very far."

IN THIS MOMENT's new album, "Black Widow", sold around 36,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 8 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on November 17, 2014.

"Black Widow" was once again helmed by Kevin Churko (OZZY OSBOURNE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, HELLYEAH, PAPA ROACH) at his The Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada.

IN THIS MOMENT in 2013 inked a new deal with Atlantic Records, a division of Warner Music Group, following the completion of its contract with Century Media Records.

IN THIS MOMENT released all four of its previous studio efforts through Century Media, including "Blood".
