Imonolith (Threat Signal, Ex-The Devin Townsend Project, Etc.) Premiere New Song “Becoming The Enemy” Feat. Avatar’s Johannes Eckerström

Imonolith (Threat Signal, ex-The Devin Townsend Project, etc.) have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Becoming The Enemy.” This track features Avatar’s Johannes Eckerström and it will appear on the band’s new album “State Of Being,” which is set to be released on March 27.

Drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen commented:

“‘Becoming The Enemy‘ is a song about becoming your own worst enemy. All of us have done it at some point of our lives. The point of the song lyrically is to learn from your mistakes instead of repeating them over and over.”

He also added the following about the lyric video:

“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 videos would help tie everything together and tell a visual story to go along with the album as a whole.”
