As In This Moment prepares for the release of their new album Godmode this October, they have been teasing us with Björk covers. This formidable force within the alternative sphere released a version of “The Purge” by Björk this past July, and more recently they made their into Las Vegas’s Hideout Recording Studio to cover “Army of Me.”
“Army of Me” has always been a noir, haunting, near-threatening yet empowering song. With words like…“And if you complain once more, You’ll meet an army of me” …and “There’s nothing wrong, Self-sufficience, please.” But in In This Moment’s musical hands, the song has somehow become even bleaker and more sonically deep. Plus, the visualizer video is a glitching aqueous scene that depicts seven cloaked figures, with a central figure wearing a crown in the center.
According to Blabbermouth.net, In This Moment vocalist Maria Brink has been into Björk for a very long time. “I was a teenager when I first got into Bjork. I was mesmerized by her. She has a really inspiring energy to a lot of her stuff, an enlightening feeling. She’s just so innovative and groundbreaking and inspiring and magical.” Guitarist Chris Howorth chimed in, “Maria played me three different Bjork songs to see which I thought would be the best. This was the one. I didn’t know it was gonna come out as cool as it is. It’s so rockin’.”
