IDMEN is the second full-length album by the Polish rock band Indukti.
Album is a metaphorical tale of human struggle with destiny, faith, daily life, nature and himself. The album's title is taken from mermaids' song from XII Book of Homer's Odyssey and means "we know" or "we've seen":
ἴδμεν γάρ τοι πάνθ' ὅσ' ἐνὶ Τροίῃ εὐρείῃ
Ἀργεῖοι Τρῶές τε θεῶν ἰότητι μόγησαν,
ἴδμεν δ', ὅσσα γένηται ἐπὶ χθονὶ πουλυβοτείρῃ.
''(For we know all the toils that in wide Troy
'' the Argives and Trojans endured through the will of the gods,
and we know all things that come to pass upon the fruitful earth.)
The song Tusan Homichi Tuvota, sung and with lyrics by Nils Frykdahl from Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, is based on an old Hopi tale transcribed by Edward A. Kennard and Albert Yava, and published in 1944 by the Education Division of the United States Indian Service.
The album cover contains a painting by Justyn Parafianowicz
