#throwbackthursday – 14-11-2019 – Matthew op ‘t Eijnde (IDEK.)

Matthew op 't Einde - IDEK. - LRP EXTENDEDIn this episode of #Throwbackthursday we go back in time with Matt from IDEK.. IDEK. played this iconic festival in 2018 and it was this very performance that left such a great impression on the LRP team that it led to the band being signed later!

Here is what Matt had to say about this special event:

“With fond memories we think back to our show at Complexity Fest 2018. With our final rehearsal done the day before the show, we were finally ready to play our then new song Approaching Storms live for the first time. We decided to do something special for this show really last-minute: as an intro for the aforementioned song, we did an ambient jam. With Harprit on the drums and a bass guitar playing dubstep-like synth riffs, we managed to create a very dark, organ-like sound and an eerie atmosphere. Never have we ever been so nervous before a show but it went really well. I mean, it’s not every day you get to share the same dressing room with your long-time heroes from Sikth!”
