Biography

Tilburg, The Netherlands (2003 – present)

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.

The band’s fourth album Dualism — on the band’s new home Nuclear Blast — is groovier, catchier, and the production even grander than its 2008 predecessor Silhouettes. The band’s trademark mix of expertly crafted brutality, melody, freaky, innovative rhythms and catchy vocals is still intact, with Bart Hennephof and Jochem Jacobs’s expertly crafted sonic… um… textures and the unruly heavy-hitting of drummer Stef Broks creating the perfect metal cocktail. The climaxes of the songs on Dualism have been elevated to a higher level, partially due to the contribution of their new keyboard player Uri Dijk and new frontman Daniel de Jongh (ex-CiLiCe) who, as far as his sound goes, is every bit the talent as his predecessor Eric Kalsbeek.
Once again, the band took total control of every facet of the album. Everything was recorded at Split Second Sound, the new Amsterdam-based studio belonging to Jacobs, who produced the album. The band also handled all their own artwork and merchandising, which was designed by bassist Remko Tielemans.
