Dutch polyrhythmic metal maniacs TEXTURES will release "Phenotype" and "Genotype", two new albums based on one concept.
The sextet is not a band that puts out a record every year. The band took almost two and a half years to write and record albums No. 5 and 6.
Music is no fast food! Details are crafted and re-crafted. Extra layers are created and stretched to form the ultimate tension span for years to last.
"Phenotype", the first of two efforts, is a song-based, 60-minute long album which will be released on February 5, 2016 via Nuclear Blast. TEXTURES present an eclectic overview of what modern metal offers. Catchy, innovative and progressive songs are what TEXTURES stand for.
The new virtuosos Uri Dijk (synth) and Joe Tal (guitar) deliver a new, harmonic vibe to the mature TEXTURES sound.
"Genotype", which will be released a year later, is a 45-minute-long conceptual track. The root material "Phenotype" consists of is presented in this song, but in a totally different context. TEXTURES go out of the box. More proggy, more atmosphere and lots of extra layers to fill the last gaps left in this extensive, double roller coaster ride.
