In 2003, the year of the launch of Textures’ debut album Polars, the first reactions start to stream in: “This is the best metal album that’s ever come out of the Netherlands” according to the Dutch music magazine Oor. The standard is set. Textures, once just a promising up-and-coming band from Tilburg, The Netherlands, has now emerged, 3 albums later, as an established name in the worldwide metal scene.

    New album is solid, no holding back on the heavy parts for this one. I found Dualism to be a very one dimensional experience. Drawing Circles still probably my favourite.

    It was going to be hard to follow up Dualism, especially with Jochem leaving the band. And, yeah, this album is disappointing. Not a patch on Dualism, Silhouettes or Drawing Circles. The rougher sounding production doesn't help either.

    "Phenotype" is full of references to old songs from previous albums. Sometimes they aren't as obvious as it seems, and maybe only older fans can assimilate them at first listening. Considering myself part of this "older fans" group, I can say it's very enjoyable when some seconds of a given song reminds you to the "old" Textures. Even though, "Phenotype" is the proof that a band can reinvent musically (even changing some band members) but keeping its own essence which makes it unique.

    Album is pretty dynamic and interesting. The first half is really brutal and straight, while the second half seems to be more reminiscent of their newer stuff. Sadly the album isn't as long as I would've hoped and I don't get the reason for putting a "song" like "Meander" on an album. Other than that it was really convincing, so it might be a decent 8/10.
