3 stars Textures is one of the pleasent albums I've heared from technical progressive metal this year, even is released way back in 2006, Drawing circles is the second offer of this intresting dutch band. I like a lot the instrumental section, very solid, tight and full of energy but I'm not so keen about the vocals. The instrumental sections are very well performed,competent musicians, each one know to handle the instruments, very good drumer btw, some very intresting chops, a perfect example are the opening track , Regenesis or Stream of Consciousness , hevy parts technical most of the time with clear influence from bands like Gojira or the mighty Meshuggah. The vocal department is not my cup of tea , really is to much towards hard core kind of aproach, is not clean is not growl is something in between, a thing that I'm not so attached. Also Textures can play and compose aswell intresting technical metal/fusion music like on Touching the Absolute, the musicianship is top notch. In the end a good album for sure, why I give only 3 stars, because I think the vocal parts ruin the Textures music overall, if were all instrumental then for sure it would be better and with higher rate from me. Good band with potential in this field that needs recognition , wider then they had today.
