Review: In This Moment – Black Widow

Black widow spiders are known for the females’ unique appearance and tendency to eat their mates. They are considered the most venomous spiders and their bite can be fatal to humans. In all cases the females are the most distinctive, with shiny black bodies and a red hourglass-shaped marking. ‘Black Widow’ is a very fitting tittle for this new album. If you ...
