Imonolith, —featuring members past and present from Threat Signal, Devin Townsend Project, Methods of Mayhem, and Econoline Crush—have just released their latest album Progressions. It features a previously released bass-thumping cover of Björk's "Army Of Me" (once covered by Helmet, coincidentally) and Nine Inch Nails' "We're In This Together," from the 1999 double-album The Fragile. You can hear Imonolith's take on the classic NIN track below.
The growly vocal strips away a bit of the polish synonymous with the original, but in doing so, another dimension to the lyrics is found through the far more direct angst. A greater emphasis is given to the riff, as well, which makes this more of a go-for-the-jugular cover song, even though a nod to Nine Inch Nails' sonic trademark can be heard in the track's closing moments.
Imonolith features drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen (Devin Townsend Project) guitarist Brian "Beav" Wadell (Devin Townsend Project), Jon Howard (Threat Signal), guitarist Kai Huppunen (Methods of Mayhem, Noise Therapy) and Scott Whalen (Econoline Crush). The band used to feature ex-Strapping Young Lad guitarist Jed Simon, but Simon left in late 2019.
