In This Moment has released a teaser for the official music video to the song “Black Wedding.” The track, which features a guest appearance by Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford as he duets with lead singer Maria Brink, is from In This Moment’s latest LP, Ritual, which came out last July. Halford appears in the video too, dressed appropriately enough in the robes of a priest.
Guitarist Chris Howorth on how the collaboration happened: “Maria was kind of like, she liked the chorus but she wasn’t really happy with the way the verses were going, so she started having this idea of a mother and a priest. And you know, we’re friends with Rob Halford, so we asked Rob and he said yes — he’s the greatest dude ever — and you know, he came down to Vegas and did the vocals for it and it was unbelievable. I mean, when I hear his voice kick in on the song, it’s unreal.”
In addition to “Black Wedding,” Ritual includes the singles “Roots” and “Oh Lord,” as well as a cover of Phil Collins‘ “In The Air Tonight.”
