All-star modern metal band Imonolith released their highly anticipated debut album "State of Being" this past March. Like many bands in the music industry, they have been affected by the COVID 19 pandemic and were forced to cancel their European tour dates in March and April.
While the guys have isolated themselves at home, they're still in daily contact with each other, keeping their creative juices flowing. Even though they are separated across the globe from each other, the members of Imonolith have been able to put together something special for fans entitled "The Quarantine Sessions".
Drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen explains in further detail:
Imonolith features drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen (Devin Townsend Project) guitarist Brian ‘Beav’ Wadell (Devin Townsend Project), Jon Howard (Threat Signal), guitarist Kai Huppunen (Methods of Mayhem, Noise Therapy) and Scott Whalen (Econoline Crush). The collective of heavy-hitting players is at the top of their game recently releasing their debut album "State of Being" on March 27th. The album features special guest appearances from Jens Kidman (Meshuggah) and famed Swedish vocalist Johannes Eckerström and is made up of 10 hook-laden, riff-heavy tracks that center around the theme of how people deal with various stages of life.
The album has already seen the release of four singles and videos - 'Hollow', the 2019 debut single that made big waves, racking up 216K Spotify streams, 'Instinct', 'Dig'; and the most recent single, 'Becoming The Enemy'. With the release of these singles, Imonolith has already received worldwide praise that has garnered them a massive number of streams and attention from the media and fans alike.

“A force to be reckoned with.” - Metal Hammer

“‘State of Being’ is built on a backbone of pure heaviness, hard-hitting riffs and irresistible hooks which keep the album burning at high intensity from start to finish.” – Sonic Perspectives
“Those looking for something that knows how to groove hard, offer a catchy chorus, or knock you flat on your back over the course of an album will find ‘State of Being’ to be an immersive listen.” – Dead Rhetoric
“A winning combination that works perfectly.” - The Rock Pit
