As voted by our supporters, here's the public debut of 'The Reign' (full song). Thanks to all of you worldwide who are supporting us in the very early stages of this band. 'The Reign' is about how society can negatively influence the mass majority. Life is all about living it your own way and not trying to be someone you're not. Be yourself. This may be an aggressive and heavy sounding song, but it has a positive underlying message.
This is just ONE side to Imonolith's overall sound. 'The Reign' represents part of the heavier side of our music. On the flip side, you can expect a lot of melody (vocally and instrumentally), with vocal hooks, memorable guitar riffs and creative, plotting rhythms throughout our music. Imonolith was based and built off of being versatile. Stay posted for more music to come soon!
'The Reign' Produced and Mixed by Jay Van Poederooyen Engineered by Jay Van Poederooyen (Drums) Engineered by Jon Howard (Vocals) Engineered by Dave Young and Mike Young (Guitars, Bass) ... See MoreSee Less

Happy Fathers Day to all the great fathers out there!
I'm a lucky man to have Jos Van Poederooyen as my father. He has been one of the biggest influences in my life. I got into music because of my fathers influence, I look at life in the most positive of ways because of my fathers influence and live each day to the max like he taught me at a young age. My Father is a guy who's caring, thoughtful, inspiring and a family man. And.... he's a bad ass cook too! I could go on and on, but instead I just want to say, "Thanks for being you, Dad... I couldn't have asked for a better father"! Hope you have an amazing day. See you later!
An Imonolith Drum Cam is being worked on right now 🤘 It'll be footage of Ryan Van Poederooyen taken from the Armoury Studios recording sessions. It should be out in the next week or so. There'll be drumming video clips from both released audio snippets of 'The Reign', 'Breathe' and more. Thanks for the awesome support. Stay posted, as we keep busting our asses to have our music come out as soon as possible!
I had an amazing time teaching a workshop at Drumeo yesterday, with all the students they had for their 1st VIP week of 2018. Lots was shared and learned with this great group of people. Very big thanks to Dave Atkinson, Jared Falk, Mike Michalkow, Reuben Spyker and all at Drumeo for the great experience. Looking forward to doing another workshop in a week! All I will say is for all you drummers out there, if you get a chance to attend one of these drum camps at Drumeo, DO IT! They sell out fast! They had people yesterday who came from Mexico, Hong Kong, USA, England among other places around the world to be there. Fun times and a truly great experience! ... See MoreSee Less
Well that's a wrap! We had an awesome time recording a new Imonolith song in Studio City, California. Thanks to Jason Van Poederooyen and Brian Howes for all their help, expertise and inspiration. Those two know what they're doing when it comes to recording and writing music, they have the successful cred to back it up too! What a great experience it was... We're stoked with the results! ...

It’s been a slice LA! Homeward bound after 4 days of recording at Van Howes Studios with Jay Van Poederooyen. Stoked for the future of Imonolith. It’s always most special when you’re recording and playing music you were a part of writing. I’m really proud of this band and all the members in the band. Dreaming big and going for it!!! Thanks to all of you that are supporting the band. We’re beyond stoked to make things happen.... onwards.

Just finished tracking drums for a new Imonolith song in LA yesterday. Our producer, sound engineer and mixer - Jason Van Poederooyen is a huge fan of SONOR DRUMS. He loved recording my Artist Bronze Snare But this time he had me try a snare he owns, that I tried for the first time. The Sonor Danny Carey Signature Series Snare Drum. I gotta’ say I was very impressed! They don’t make these drums anymore but I’m going to see if I can get my hands on one of these bad boys. Loved it!!! Another killer sounding song recorded with another killer piece of Sonor Gear!

@beavenlight laid down some guitars and revisited playing the bass on this one track we recorded in Los Angeles. Not everyone in the band could make this trip so Beav came in and saved the day. It sounds huge, thanks to @jvpsounds!!! Things are moving along nicely at Van Howes Studios... #Imonolith #recording #losangeles #vanhowesstudios #studiocity #beav #rvp #jon #jvp ... See MoreSee Less
@jvpsounds is producing, recording and mixing the @imonolithband stuff for us. Today while recording at Van Howes Studios I ran into this snare drum and drum head that was used for the DTP album Z2 recorded in Los Angeles back in 2014. Jay recorded the drums for that record. It was pretty cool to run into that snare drum/head and the crazy memories from that recording session. Two full albums recorded in two days, I knew it was going to be tough, that’s why I wrote, “Make the Impossible Possible’’ on the snare head. I added ‘Hit Here’ to the center of the drum to add some humour to it too 😉 You always have to believe and give yourself a fighting chance with everything you do in life!
