‘Phenotype’ is a song-based, 60-minute long album. Textures present an eclectic overview of what modern metal offers. Catchy, innovative and progressive songs.
New musical virtuosos Uri Dijk (synth) and Joe Tal (guitar) deliver a new, harmonic vibe to their already mature sound.

Having formed in 2001, Textures launched their debut album ‘Polars’ in 2003 and the positive reactions started flooding in:
“This is the best metal album that’s ever come out of the Netherlands” – Dutch music magazine Oor.
After that the standard was set. Textures, once just a promising up-and-coming band from the South of the Netherlands, is now acknowledged as an established name in the worldwide metal scene.
Diversity and complexity are important elements of the unique Textures sound, building bridges between epic, polyrhythmic grooves and contrasting melodies. They create their own style and establish their own interpretation of progressive, heavy modern metal.
