In This Moment - Black Wedding

Wow, I can’t believe I haven’t posted a song from one of my albums of 2017! I’m not really much of a head banger, but every year there are one or two pretty hard core metal albums that get to me. Last year, it was definitely New York rockers In This Moment’s Ritual. It starts off with some intense big drums, chanting and gonging bells on Salvation, seques into one of the finest rockers from all of year with Oh Lord, then into a weird homage to Billy Idol’s White Wedding called, not surprisingly, Black Wedding. Then we get the dark and brooding cover of Phil Collins’ In The Air Tonight. Wow - what a run!
Here’s a fantastic version of Black Wedding. To show you how little I know of the heavy metal scene, the song title says “(feat. Rob Halford)” and I didn’t even know that he is the lead singer of Judas Priest! But he shows up in this live video for Loudwire Music Awards. But be sure to check out the rest of the album. It’s fantastic! Wish I could see them in concert but I think my head banging concert days are over (if, in fact, I ever had them!).
