Introducing IDIOM, a DIY quartet of veracious males from the South West of England whose mission is to bring down the house. In a few short years IDIOM have already shared stages with the likes of DevilDriver, 36 Crazyfists, Skindred, (Hed) PE, Aiden, Young Guns, InMe, Bring Me the Horizon, From Autumn to Ashes and Exit Ten, plus made appearances at The Bulldog Bash, Blood Stock and Aeon Festivals, not to mention self-releasing an acclaimed debut EP ‘Sideshow’ on Dirt Track records.
Have also released (18th May 2008) the mini-album recorded at Not-in-Pill Studios with acclaimed producers Martin ‘Ginge’ Ford and Jeff Rose (Bullet For My Valentine, Skindred, Funeral For A Friend, Ronnie Size and Dub War) IDIOM, listed as one of Rock Sound magazine’s ‘101 Bands To Watch 2008’ will be touring prolifically throughout 08, their high-octane brand of old skool metal with new skool style winning over audiences from across the metal, rock and hardcore punk scenes.
With an attitude reminiscent of such greats as Rage Against The Machine, Pantera and Incubus, IDIOM’s superb live performances and ability to turn the most placid of audiences into a rabid mosh is every metal head’s wet dream.
After releasing the awesome “We Can’t all be Super heroes” at the end of 2010 where they opened for the mighty Devildriver and 36 crazyfists, the band have pushed on and after taking time to write and perfect their debut, they’ve since played Hammerfest, Hard Rock Hell in Ibiza and played a couple of shows with their heroes, Soulfly.
