Textures  


Arguably one of the Netherlands' best extreme metal bands, Textures formed around 2001, the members coming together from various Dutch bands to form a new group initially in the progressive metal mold. Eventually, though, the band turned to harder, more extreme forms of metal, but still with the prog qualities of experimentalism and tight musicianship. By 2002 a stable lineup emerged and in 2004 their debut album, Polars, was released. Meshuggah was clearly the prime influence, with choppy, off-beat staccato riffing, odd time signatures, and Jens Kidman-inspired vocals the dominant features, yet here (as with their successive albums) they weren't afraid to branch out in other directions, befitting their extreme progressive metal ethos. They recorded five albums in 15 years, with a sixth in the works (Genotype, intended to be the second half of 2016's Phenotype), but they instead decided to break up in mid-2017.
