Dutch metallers Textures, after quite a long wait, have finally come out with a brand new single titled “Singularity”. This single features a slightly altered line-up, i.e. Daniël de Jongh on Vocals, Bart Hennephof on Guitars, Jochem Jacobs on Guitars, Stef Broks on the Drums, Remko Tielemans on Bass and Uri Dijk on Synths.
“Singularity” starts off with a bang, quickly progressing into a familiar Textures pattern- very trademark mad Djenty riffing and pitch changes. Daniel’s (ex-Cilice) vocals are not too similar to Eric’s, but aren’t that different making it difficult to digest either. Filling in a vocalist’s shoes is always the most difficult, and there couldn’t have been a better choice than Daniel for this. From the growls to vocals, he nails it all. In short, Textures is back, sounding groovier, heavier and slicker than before! It seems like they’re ready to conquer 2011 with the new album!
“Singularity” is the first single off their upcoming fourth album ‘Dualism’ which will be released via Nuclear Blast Records. The band supposedly took control of every aspect 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.
