Batch ID are Erik Hasselberg and Johan Berg, they met in Gothenburg in 2006.
They were both looking for a musical partner and found each other through Myspace. They met up for some beers and had alot to talk about. They decided to try to write a song together and after a few hours they came up with the song Nothing to say, wich eventually ended up on the Testosterone album.
They started with the intention of writing electronic pop with alot of cocky attitude. But the music soon drifted towards being more agressive and faster, with a more punkier vibe to it. Their visit at Familientreffen IV also inspired the band towards more EBM-like songs.
2008 they released there debut album Testosterone on their own DIY-label Closet Freak Production. In 2009 they released the EP Tanz Anarchie at a gig in Berlin. With the realease of the EP the band has found their musical direction and are currently working on new material, mainly inspired by EBM-music, oldschool punk, and the casette movement in the 90′s.
A finales del 2011 Batch ID fue fichado por el sello italiano EK Product, donde lanzarán su segundo larga duración, el cual será titulado “Ni skrämmer inte mig” y saldrá al mercado el 14 de setiembre del 2012.
