"Due to personal reasons, our bass player Dennis [Aarts] has decided to leave the band and focus on his personal life for a while. We're surely going to miss him! We wish him tons of luck in all his future endeavors and thank him for all these years of fun, crazy heavy music and crushing the stage with us. We're currently in the process of finding a new bass player. Michel 'MuD' Quak will temporarily replace Dennis during the upcoming CYNIC show and U.K. tour. We'll keep you posted.

"In September we will continue writing our new album, which we hope to start recording in November. We set our minds to a 2008 spring release, of course, followed by a big number of new shows to support the new material. We can't wait to crush you all with new songs!"

TEXTURES' latest album, "Drawing Circles", was released in April 2006 via France's Listenable Records. The band's self-produced debut CD, "Polars", was originally issued through the group's own label and was later re-released through Listenable.

Brutal Assault Festival Lineup Nearly Complete

The 11th edition of the Brutal Assault festival is scheduled for August 10th - 12th in Svojsice U Prelouce (100 km east of Prague), Czech Republic.

Organizers have issued the following update:

This year’s event promises more impressive expansion and confirms that the organizers don’t intend to stagnate. On the contrary, from year to year, the festival’s program is more and more various and promises more and more foreign metal crowd-pullers for the fans of promiscuous extreme genres. Thanks to the participation of many first-rate metal bands, this event aspires to become a major metal festival in central Europe.

It’s difficult to say which band can be branded as the headliner because this year’s lineup offers up several giants of the metal genre.

Great attraction, especially for fans of atmospheric or symphonic black metal are Norwegians black metal gurus DIMMU BORGIR. In their case we can look for a frosty and dark concert experience.

The next exclusive guest comes from the USA. FEAR FACTORY, who were well known as a representatives of dehumanized cyber metal, but nowadays they come with a new actual face of the year 2006. More...
