Featuring guitarists Kai Huppunen and Brian Waddell, vocalist Jon Howard, bassist Scott Whalen, and drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen, Imonolith is a new Canadian metal powerhouse with a debut album, State of Being, out on March 27th. Today, the band has shared their fourth new single, “Becoming The Enemy,” a video for which can be seen below, and which features Swedish vocalist Johannes Eckerström.

Commenting on the track, Van Poederooyen said, “‘Becoming the Enemy’ is a song about becoming your own worst enemy. All of us have done it at some point in our lives. The point of the song lyrically is to learn from your mistakes instead of repeating them over and over.” He adds, “We continue the theme we started in ‘Instinct.’ The theme of our album State of Being is about how people deal with various states of being throughout their lives. We thought having ‘The Sickness’ appear in a couple of videos would help tie everything together and tell a visual story to go along with the album as a whole.”
