IMONOLITH release quarantine session ‘The Mourning’19th May 2020
All-star modern metal band IMONOLITH have released the latest in their weekly video series “The Quarantine Sessions,” a playthrough for the track ‘The Mourning’ from the recently released debut album, State of Being.
Says drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen, “’The Quarantine Sessions’ are getting pretty fun to do for all of us in IMONOLITH. We’re changing it up with every session we do. The videos have been getting a great response from our supporters and we’ve been gaining new supporters along the way. It’s a great way for all of us in IMONOLITH to keep active and give people something fun to watch. Jon’s kicking ass editing the videos and we’re all having fun recording our parts for it.
“This is our fourth song we’re releasing called, ’The Mourning’. It’s a song about being yourself and not conforming to someone else’s idea of how you should live your life or do things… you’ll become one of The Mourning as a result. The song is a bit left field compared to the rest of the record and we love that!
“Jon’s vocal performance is pretty unique and varied throughout this track. Beav and Kai have guitar solos in this song that possess a lot of twists and turns, while Scott and I lay down a plotting, heavy foundation. Hope you dig it, and don’t forget to check out our Live IMONOLITH Instagram Feed tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. Pacific Time with some IMONOLITH members. See you there!”
