Believe it or not we’re now on the fourth week of the playthrough video series from supergroup Imonolith as they work through their entire album “State of Being” while on lockdown, one track at a time. That means we’ve reached one of the stand out tracks in “Dig“. To recap those supergroup credentials, in their ranks are members and former members of Devin Townsend Project, Threat Signal, Methods of Mayhem, Noise Therapy and Econoline Crush, not to mention guest appearances fromThe album features special guest appearances from Jens Kidman of Meshuggah and of course Johannes Eckerström.
Vocalist Jon Howard comments on the song and his editing skills: “As you may know, our ‘Quarantine Session’ videos are being released every Monday. What you may not know, is each week I gather videos from the guys and use my editing skills to create the playthrough videos myself! I work very hard on these and aim to make them a bit different each time for your viewing pleasure. The next quarantine video release is for our song ‘Dig’ from our debut album ’State of Being.’ I can’t wait for you guys to see how intense we’ve made this one! ‘Dig’ has a really heavy groove and hits hard, I can’t help but bang my head when this tune comes on! The lyrics can come across pretty harsh, as well. For example, ‘Taste the dirt before you close your eyes.’ Basically, I feel like I’m yelling at someone who is digging their own grave with all the bad choices they’ve made… I am screaming directly into the camera during this video, so it’ll seem like I’m yelling at you? Haha. Whatever it takes to get the vibe across!”
