    Canadian metal band Imonolith are gearing up to release their debut album, State of Being. The latest single, “Becoming the Enemy”, is premiering exclusively via Heavy Consequence.

    The band’s lineup features numerous musicians from the Canadian metal community including Devin Townsend Project drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen and guitarist Brian Wadell, along with Jon Howard of Threat Signal on vocals, guitarist Kai Huppunen (Methods of Mayhem, Noise Therapy) and Scott Whalen (Econoline Crush).

    Given the member’s diverse musical backgrounds, Imonolith don’t fit any obvious metal genre tag. Van Poederooyen and Wadell bring elements of prog, while Howard’s vocals are rooted in the metalcore and extreme metal. “Becoming the Enemy” highlights the band’s varied skill set, and features a guest appearance from Avatar singer Johannes Eckerström.


    “‘Becoming the Enemy’ is a song about becoming your own worst enemy,” Van Poederooyen said. “All of us have done it at some point of our lives. The point of the song lyrically is to learn from your mistakes instead of repeating them over and over.”

    After offering up four singles from the album, Imonolith will release the LP in its entirety on March 27th. They’ll then immediately commence a lengthy European tour starting in Sheffield, UK — the band’s first headlining trek.
