    Great to finally find wicked music from own soil, shows how it's worth checking out a band you don't know. Will definately pick this up next week, cheers for the post!

    Actually the album "Drawing Circles" that this song comes from is every bit as diverse as their new one. Unlike Meshuggah, Textures has more than one song. No disrespect to Meshuggah, I love their one song and I own every album!

    Ahahaha I am glad that one thread I started is going on for a battle of POV's :D Nice to see that we are all different finally.

    Well, like it or not, from the place I am listening to it.... I love it, and I take it like one of the most challenging metal music I have listen for a long while.

    It's one of the first time that a band is actually releasing something that is better than what I excepted.

    I'll go to their live show next week in Anvers (Belgium, yeah mothafukassssssss, if there is one good thing about living here, it's being able to go to a show like this, and actually meet the guys !, but there are actually many others :D)

    Meshuggah don't own polyrhythms. Im not saying Textures aren't influenced by meshuggah, they obviously are, but as soon as something is slightly off kilter rhythmically people just dismiss it as "meshuggah rip offs, whats the point blah blah blah"

    Its like whats the point of listening to any new bands, they more then likely are an amalgamation of a couple of other bands you listen to. Im not saying that in defence of Textures, I think the diversity in their music speaks for itself.

    They are a prime example of what a makes a good dutch band.

    Its not in the stealing, its not in the copying, its in the assimilating.

    I might go see them the 25th, the last time saw them live it was really bad though.. but it was a small crowd and a small stage.

    After a few listens, I feel its a solid effort. It doesn't get as many spins as "Drawing Circles" (which I still love), but its getting rotations in my daily expanding library. And as to the "one" Meshuggah song, the only Meshuggah I really enjoy is from "Contradictions Collapse" to "Destroy Erase Improve"... maybe I'm just old school. Plus, Textures have a lot more variety than what Meshuggah has offered as of late.

    Oh, and I second Meshuggah doesn't own polyrhythms...do the history, Charles Ives, Charles Wuorinen, Elliot Carter, the list goes on. :headbang: oh, and also in jazz.

    I've seen them live yesterday.

    Great show. They were going direct from 6505 with speaker simulators and direct boxes. pretty good sound.
    i think I've seen G-force's in their racks. pretty similar setup for the 2 guitarists.

    a lot of energy.

    great clean vocals.

    perfect drumming. on some drum patterns, you could not see the drumsticks moving as he was so fast. and I was real close.

    very good tightness all around.

    Great live show experience.

    I talked to some of the guys afterwhile. Very cool people.

    Arch Enemy were boring as hell compared to that. but their musicianship, stage presence and light show made a great gig anyway.
