Idiom to release new EP in the next issue of Metal Hammer

Following the release of the band's Movement record with Metal Hammer earlier this year, we're proud announce that we'll be giving away Idiom's Same Old Songs EP for free in the next issue!

If you’re a subscriber of Metal Hammer or if you pick up the mag in WHSmith, you’ll be able to get your hands on the new five-track EP from the Exeter alt-metallers, Idiom. And the title track features none other than Skindred’s Benji Webbe on guest vocal duty, along with Sean Smith from The Blackout.

On working with Idiom, Benji said: “Having the chance to lay some vocals on one of Idiom’s tracks was amazing. I dug them the very first time I saw them. They ain’t in a scene; they are a little like Skindred in that way.”
