Imonolith, the band consisting of vocalist Jon Howard (Threat Signal, Arkaea), guitarist Jed Simon (ex-Strapping Young Lad, Zimmers Hole), bassist-or-guitarist Brian Waddell (ex-The Devin Townsend Band, Devin Townsend Project), bassist Byron Stroud (ex-Strapping Young Lad, ex-Fear Factory), and drummer Ryan van Poederooyen (ex-The Devin Townsend Band, Devin Townsend Project), is currently working on its debut full-length album.
You can check out a demo of the new song “The Reign” below. It sounds very mid-2000s kinda nu-metal, but in a good way! Here’s what the band had to say about the track.
“‘The Reign‘ is about how society can negatively influence the mass majority. Life is all about living it your own way and not trying to be someone you’re not. Be yourself. This may be an aggressive and heavy sounding song, but it has a positive underlying message.
This is just ONE side to Imonolith‘s overall sound. ‘The Reign‘ represents part of the heavier side of our music. On the flip side, you can expect a lot of melody (vocally and instrumentally), with vocal hooks, memorable guitar riffs and creative, plotting rhythms throughout our music. Imonolith was based and built off of being versatile. Stay posted for more music to come soon!”
Imonolith plans to release an album later this year.
