TEXTURES are releasing a brand new and exclusive version of their classic album ‘Polars’ (via Listenable Records), which had not been available for many years, now re-released completely remastered with an exclusive bonus track in limited edition digipack and limited edition coloured 180 gram vinyl.
In 2003, the year of the launch of TEXTURES’ debut album Polars, the first reactions started to stream in: “This is the best metal album that’s ever come out of the Netherlands” according to Major Dutch music magazine Oor.
The band remembers : “Coming from the south of The Netherlands we started as a group of friends from the same neighbourhood in a small village named Etten-Leur. Our ideas were big and pretentious from the start. All raised with music from every corner of the musical spectrum we were bound to make an eclectic sound. State of the art as well. Looking back, we had so many ideas, we were in fact overflowing with inspiration, we just had to deliver this thing the best way we could. (…)
So, in the freezing last days of 2001 we camped for two weeks in our temporary studio we had built to create the basis of our debut album. No shows were done, no press, no promotion. On purpose. In silence we worked for three more years to launch everything that we had in one single blast. “
This metal classic album has been remastered by ex guitar player Jochel Jacobs of Split Second Studios who also played on the record .
