IDEK. – “Battered And Blue” Layered Reality – Official Lyric Video


IDEK. is an experimental metal band formed Flevoland, The Netherlands. The band was founded by well-known names in the scene, Matthew Op’t Eijnde and Yaresh Soekhlal, with a desire to create the music they truly want to play. Bringing in Harprit
Bola (Amongst the Unbroken), veteran John Russchen (Gottlieb) and newcomer Kaya Bax, IDEK. created a balance of new, old and different influences.
This resulted in crazy, heavy, fist pumping riffs, combined with jazzy grooves, blues, a touch of cynical humor and just about anything you can imagine. The band wants to crush any preconceived notion about metal and take the listener by storm
With their fresh, yet recognizable sound, IDEK. managed to turn plenty of heads.
Bass-player Yaresh, however, decided to leave the band shortly after to focus all of his energy on his other projects, including the eclectic metal band Mary Fields (Utrecht). Shortly after, both Kaya and John left the band to pursue other endeavours.
