iridea - Flint Slope

iridea - Flint Slope
Iridea is an emerging Adelaide-based group of just two members: the Headland brothers, with Matthew playing several different guitars, and Daniel as drummer and singer. Both are successful engineers—one corporate and one research—and this analytical propensity is evident in the refined, geometrical quality of their work. Their music is also characterised by unrelenting intensity, both in 8-string-driven metal, and in the quiet urgency of softer sections. This is music that does not fall into a comfortable groove, cannot simply stand still, and must always move onwards, forwards.

Iridea’s origin goes back over a decade, as the Matthew and Daniel have been making music together since their school days. Through shared history, these brothers have developed an authentic creative voice. Their process has evolved gradually and naturally, allowing them to take ownership over all aspects of their work.

Recording for their first EP wrapped up around the time that younger brother Daniel earned his doctorate, and started working abroad. In fact, Daniel recorded the last of the vocals in his tiny apartment in Germany. Although their current geographic separation prevents live performances, Iridea is an important connection for Matthew and Daniel, and will continue to grow and evolve.

About this track...

Iridea is a response to a perceived gap in contemporary metal. There was something that we wanted to hear, and although we found elements of it in other bands, nothing quite did it. Our solution was to simply make it ourselves; a seamless combination of non-repetitive song structure, complex rhythm, and djent-esque metal.
