“We Never Forget,” the latest video from Canadian all-star modern metal band IMONOLITH’s “Quarantine Sessions,” is available today.
Watch “We Never Forget,” available now via Knotfest.com, at https://knotfest.com/imonolith-continue-quarantine-sessions-with-we-never-forget/. “’We Never Forget’ is a song everyone in the band loves,” says drummer Ryan “RVP” Van Poederooyen. “Jon helped write this song with Beav and I. He came up with the intro/chorus and verse riffs. We were actually toying with the idea of releasing this song as a single. It’s got everything from catchy choruses to slamming riffs and pounding drums. It’s a fun song for us to play live. It just has a great energy overall. The song lyrically is about living life and learning from it as much as you possibly can. No regrets. We all succeed in areas of life and make mistakes but the best thing you can do when you make a mistake or succeed is learn from it. Never forget what you learn. This is just an ass kicker of a song with a good message behind it. Hope you guys dig this video of it!”
“We Never Forget” is the seventh video in IMONOLITH’s weekly series of playthroughs.
“We’re trying to change things up each time we do these videos,” says RVP. “Jon has been hard at work making these videos unique and different from each other. We may be all playing in our respective homes/rehearsal space, but the effects and camera angles in post-production make each video different. Thanks again to our frontman, Jon for doing a great job!”
Tune in to IMONOLITH’s live feed on Instagram tomorrow at 3:30 p.m. EDT/12:30 p.m. PDT to talk to band members about “We Never Forget,” the playthrough video and much more.

“Given the members’ diverse musical backgrounds, IMONOLITH don’t fit any obvious metal genre tag. Van Poederooyen and Wadell bring elements of prog, while Howard’s vocals are rooted in the metalcore and extreme metal.” – Consequence of Sound
“‘State of Being’ is built on a backbone of pure heaviness, hard-hitting riffs and irresistible hooks which keep the album burning at high intensity from start to finish.” – Sonic Perspectives
“Those looking for something that knows how to groove hard, offer a catchy chorus, or knock you flat on your back over the course of an album will find ‘State of Being’ to be an immersive listen.” – Dead Rhetoric
“A winning combination that works perfectly.” - The Rock Pit
