An in-studio video update by Dutch technical metal band TEXTURES is now available for viewing on YouTube. This episode gives a behind-the-scenes look at Day 8 of the guitar recording sessions at Split Second Sound in Amsterdam with producer/TEXTURES guitarist Jochem Jacobs for the band’s upcoming fourth studio album. Jacobs is also responsible for the production on the band’s previous albums.
Guitarist Bart Hennephof had the following to say about the recording process:
“This might be the biggest thing we have done so far, especially guitar-wise. We really used every piece of gear – every guitar, amp, cabinet and effect – that was available to us at Split Second Sound studio, to get the right sounds for all the different parts of the album. It’s a very tough process; we have been tracking guitar for weeks now, but finally the end is in sight! Bass, synths and vocals still need to be done, and those are being recorded right now. The pieces are coming together. This album is growing beyond control! Can’t wait to get on the road with this!”
The as-yet-untitled and follow-up to 2008’s Silhouettes album will be released this fall.

TEXTURES’ 2003 debut album, Polars, received worldwide critical acclaim and the band went on to receive an Essent Award for “Most Promising Act” in 2004 in their native Holland. Their 2006 sophomore album, Drawing Circles, was their true breakthrough and solidified TEXTURES’ status in the annuls of the early djent movement.
