Today I will listen to Polish band Indukti’s 2009 release “IDMEN”.
Indukti debuted in 2004, with S.U.G.A.R. , a very Crimson’ish prog rock album, 5 years had passed, and things have changed quite dramatic, IDMEN is mostly very dark metal. From an interview at “Lords of metal” : “Anyway, this time we wanted more blood, more extensive and psycho sounds”. The fact that Indukti features a dominant violin on all tracks, gives them a very unusual sound in heavy metal.
On “…And Who Is God Now?!” Guest singer Maciej Taff from Polish stoner rock/heavy metal band Black River, deliver a solid heavy vocal.
But there is less heavy music on the album, on “Ninth Wave” even a trumpet (Robert Majewski). Another epic track showing, wide range in composition and style, still far from the moods on S.U.G.A.R.
The effort put into the details on this album is stunning, even after repeated intence listening, new things keep coming out from these tracks.
Indukti is Adrzej Kaczyński bass guitar, Wawrzyniec Dramowicz percussion, Ewa Jabłońska violin, Maciej Jaśkiewicz guitars, Piotr Kocimski guitar, with guest vocalists when not instrumental.
