In 2004, TEXTURES made a dent in the metal scene with Polars. Inspiring later bands like PERIPHERY, TESSERACT and MONUMENTS, their state-of-the-art combination of diverse metal styles would pave the way for new genres as modern, prog, math metal and djent.

In honor of this, TEXTURES will release Polars exclusively on vinyl for the first time.

Polars is still the only missing vinyl record in the four-album discography of TEXTURES. Also the band will release new Polars-related merchandise. Items can be purchased later this year.
