Dutch metal act TEXTURES have inked a deal with France's Listenable Records. The group's self-produced debut CD, "Polars" — originally released through the group's own label — will be remastered and re-issued via Listenable on February 23, 2004. As a special bonus, a video clip will be added to a limited-edition version of the CD.

According to an official press release, TEXTURES' musical style is "an awesome and unique blend of SOILWORK/MESHUGGAH with some progressive elements that flow in a surprising natural manner."

The group, who have previously opened for the likes of SEPULTURA, MACHINE HEAD and THE CROWN, have received extremely enthusiastic reviews in major magazines like Aardshock and Oor, among others.

The complete track listing for "Polars" is as follows:

01. Swandive (mp3)
02. Ostensibly Impregnable
03. Young Man (mp3 clip)
04. Transgression
05. The Barrier
06. Effluent
07. Polars (mp3 clip)
08. Heave
