Biography

It was October 2010 that a couple of good friends that had already made music together in the past decided to form a proper band.
With Jelle Hamstra behind the drum kit, Janneke Smids on keys, Siegfried Kramer on lead guitar, Paulus Kramer on bass and Harm-Jan Broekema as vocalist the band was already nearly complete.
Soon after Jeroen Bosma joined the band to play rhythm guitar and they were good to go.

The band was christened Insidiae which is a Latin word meaning ambush or treachery.
The word Insidiae is technically a plural form which has no singular.

Though when translated it does refer to a singular concept and in that way it relates to being in a band. It takes multiple people to form a band that is itself one entity.

A genre or style of music was never really stipulated but grew in a natural way with each song that was written. Resulting in the sound that now defines Insidiae.
Dynamic, heavy as well as melodic, with a strong groove and a progressive edge.
The songs themselves are what’s important and as long as they have an interesting progression
and their components do not feel pieced together; almost anything goes.
When it comes to lyrical content the band tends to focus itself on the darker side of the human psyche.

In a little over a year Insidiae was already fortunate enough to open for big international acts such as Sonic Syndicate and Blaze Bayley as well as well known national bands like Autumn and God Dethroned.
