Avant-garde math metallers IDEK. have launched the video for their brand new single The Trek, a very fascinating 8,34 epic song.
The song is a special collaboration between the 3-piece band, percussionist Folkert Blom and a massive Church Organ in the Nicolaïkerk in Utrecht. The song combines crushing progressive metal with a dynamic musical palette that is sure to please everyone who likes their music dynamically challenging.
Here’s what the bandmembers had to say about this track:
«We are beyond stoked and proud to finally release this experience. A lot of work went into making this song work the way it did. We hope fans get an experience that is similar to actually being there in the church».
The Trek is a prog metal experience, written around the Nicolaï Church in Utrecht. The idea for this experience all started with the natural reverb the church has: 7 seconds long. The challenge: write and perform metal music around this insane reverb. The result? Droning, deep guitar sounds, melancholic vocal leads and pumping drums, all accompanied by the gigantic organ inside of the church and an intense light show, giving the listener a unique experience they won’t soon forget. The Trek features live recorded audio and images from the experience.
