Briefly Speaking...


"The question we’re left with is regarding the negative in the world: ‘Is all Forgone?’"

The latest “Quarantine Sessions” video from all-star modern metal band IMONOLITH – “Forgone” from the band’s debut, State of Being – is available now on the Music Choice network in the United States.

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 “Forgone” “Quarantine Sessions” video is available to 60 million national households on Music Choice’s Metal channel, as well as Music Choice On-Demand, and Music Choice’s website and app.

To make the most of extra time at home, IMONOLITH is assembling a “Quarantine Sessions” video, released every Monday, in sequential order for each of the tracks from their debut album, State of Being. The band is staying connected with fans, as well, with live Instagram chats each Tuesday.

“Hey everyone, another week, but not just another ‘Quarantine Session’ video,” commented Drummer Ryan “RVP” Van Poederooyen. “These videos have been a lot of fun for the band to make and believe it or not, we put a ton of effort into each video we release. Every band member shoots video footage in multiple angles, Jon ends up editing all the video footage together and our Social Media team puts the final touches on the whole thing. We hope all you guys have liked them up to date.”

This week’s ‘Quarantine Session’ video is for the song “Forgone” off the band’s debut album, State of Being.

“This has been one of the more popular songs outside of the singles we have released for the album,” Van Poederooyen continued. “This song is about how the human race can collectively come together world-wide and create a positive environment to live in, or work against each other and create a negative environment that can create war, racism, terrorism, among many other negatives. The question we’re left with is regarding the negative in the world: ‘Is all Forgone?’ If not, how can we collectively better ourselves and our environment? Musically, it’s on the heavier side of things, while maintaining vocal hooks and has subtle touches of prog throughout. It’s a fun song for us to play. We hope you guys dig this video playthrough of it!”

Additionally, IMONOLITH is presenting “Riff Lessons,” which are picked up by the Little Kids Rock network, reaching 550,000 kids across 500 school districts in 48 states and Washington, DC. Check out the latest “Riff Lesson” from guitarist Brian “Beav” Wadell at
