Dutch progressive/extreme metallers TEXTURES have been forced to cancel their previously announced July 6 appearance at the Metalcamp festival in Tolmin, Slovenia due to the fact that Eric Kalsbeek (vocals) is suffering from "throat problems." "After having his throat examined at the hospital, doctors found out that Eric had an abnormal reaction to allergies which has resulted in loss of voice and throat problems," the band writes in a statement. "A few weeks of prescribed rest and medication will have him back on his feet before you know it. Sorry to everyone who was excited to see us on this year's Metalcamp; we truly hope to make up for it in the near future."TEXTURES' latest album, "Silhouettes", recently entered the Dutch album chart at position No. 100. This is the band's first chart showing ever. "Silhouettes" was recorded at Split Second Sound with Jochem Jacobs in the producer's chair. Jacobs previously oversaw the recording process for TEXTURES' last CD, "Drawing Circles". "Drawing Circles" was released in April 2006 via France's Listenable Records. The band's self-produced debut CD, "Polars", was originally issued through the group's own label and was later re-released through Listenable.
