August 11, 2018, 5 days ago
Strapping Young Lad founder Devin Townsend recently decided to "take a break" from the Devin Townsend Project. Following his announcement that he had put the Devin Townsend Project on indefinite hiatus, two members of DTP teamed up with a couple of members of Townsend's former group, Strapping Young Lad, to form a new band, Imonolith. Joining drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen and guitarist Brian "Beav" Waddell (who played bass in DTP) are bassist Byron Stroud, second guitarist Jed Simon and vocalist Jon Howard.
The band has checked in with the following update:
"Sorry for the lack of posts, we've been busy guys. Here is some various outtake footage of Imonolith singer, Jon Howard, recording vocals for the song, 'The Reign'.
Jon's singing throughout the Imonolith material is very versatile, as you will all soon here. There is actually a tonne of melody in Imonolith's music. 'The Reign' is one of the heaviest tracks on the upcoming album. When it comes to vocals in Imonolith, you can expect a lot of melody, clean singing, screaming and everything in between. Jon definitely gets to showcase his wide range of vocal talent in Imonolith.
For this particular video clip, we're keeping it heavy... stay posted for more Imonolith music and news soon!"
A message from the band:
"'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!
Thanks as always for your awesome support!"
