Die niederländischen Prog-Tech-Metaller Textures, gelten seit der Veröffentlichung Ihres Debüt-Albums „Polars“ 2003 als vielversprechendster Metal-Export ihrer Heimat und sind zwölf Jahre später eine feste Größe in der internationalen Metal-Szene. Begleitend zur weltweiten Veröffentlichung ihres fünften Albums „Phenotype“ über Nuclear Blast Records, wird das Sextett auch für drei Konzerte nach Deutschland kommen. Textures spielen am 19. Februar 2016 in Frankfurt im Elfer, am 20. Februar 2016 in Berlin im Musik & Frieden und am 21. Februar 2016 in Hamburg im Headcrash.
Das 2011 veröffentlichte Vorgänger-Album und Nuclear Blast-Debüt „Dualism“ erhielt wie „Silhouettes“ von 2008 beste Kritiken in der internationalen Presse. Von Europa über die Vereinigten Staaten bis nach Indien, sang die Metal-Community den Song „Awake“ mit, der zur besten Sendezeit in großen Radiostationen gespielt wurde und bei YouTube mehr als 1 Millionen Mal geklickt wurde.
Der typische Mix der Band aus gekonnt gestalteter Brutalität, Melodie, verrückter, innovativer Rhythmen und eingängigem Gesang wird auch auf ihrem fünften Werk „Phenotype“ fortgesetzt. Aktuell befindet sich die Band im Split Second Sound Studio, welches Gründungsmitglied Jochem Jacobs gehört, der nach seinem Ausstieg 2012 wieder als Produzent am Prozess der Entstehung beteiligt ist. Textures haben zusätzlich Exivious/ex-Pestilence-Musiker Yuma van Eekelen an Bord geholt, der als Co-Produzent und Toningenieur im Split Second Sound Studio sowie dem bandeigenen Final Focus Studio mitarbeitet. Die Band äußert sich begeistert über die Arbeit an „Phenotype“: “We are thrilled to be back in the studio after such a long time. We know our fans are waiting for a while now as our previous album ‘Dualism’ has been released 4 years ago already. We have spent a long time making the songs really fit, so we can tell you this album will have something in store for every TEXTURES fan out there and even more than that!!” Textures haben bereits im Rahmen ihrer „Polars 10th Anniversary Tour“ im Oktober 2014 ein paar neue Songs auf ihre Livequalitäten überprüft, was von den Fans mehr als positiv aufgenommen wurde. Das volle Paket gibt es dann im Februar 2016 in Frankfurt, Berlin und Hamburg zu hören, wenn die „Oceans Collide Tour 2016“ der Band aus dem Süden Hollands in Deutschland gastieren wird.

Operating in the fractured no man’s land where memory meets imagination, HYPNO5E’s raison d’être is providing foundation for the unknown and unimagined.
…but don’t be deterred by such conceptual enthusiasm, as their music is powerful, visceral and immediate. There are moments that remind you of the expansive technical elaborations of BTBAM, but there is also the careful melancholia of Cynic and the sheer power of AmenRa.
In the end though, all these comparisons fail – HYPNO5E’s organic sound is undoubtedly their own. Unlike so many bands that rely on a single sound or technique to create their music, HYPNO5E are not bound to any precondition.
The band was formed originally in Montpelier, France in 2004 when guitarist and songwriter Emmanuel Jessua teamed up with drummer Thibault Lamy. Hypno5e puts on a unique and truly hypnotic live show – a compelling mix of music, movie samples and emotive visuals. The band honed their craft on international tours with Gojira and The Dillinger Escape Plan.
Shores of the Abstract Line is a dreamily muscular response to the deep feelings of yearning and displacement which burn within us. Delicate passages of reminiscence merge with deep-seated rage to form a panoptic portrait of the human condition. Latin influences blend seamlessly with riff-driven prog to form a heady concoction that toys with the accepted modes and structures of progressive music. The result is an album that is “confident and uncertain, excited and depressed… this dichotomy is one of the band’s leitmotifs, that’s how we get all those highs and lows successively, just like in our actual lives. We play bipolar music”, comments Jessua.
There is a fine line between madness and genius and this record exists on the very edge of that precipice – Shores of the Abstract Line is certainly a challenging, but deeply rewarding listening experience. Immerse yourself in this album, and you may never find your way out.
