Check Out France’s Rise, Produced by Former Textures Guitarist Jochem Jacobs

0

Just as Textures have returned with their first new releases since 2011’s Dualism, so the band’s former guitarist, Jochem Jacobs, has now returned with his first producing gig for a studio album since that very same record.

Coincidence?!?! Probably. Smooth segue?!?! Nope.

Still: Rise, from France, will release their debut album, the Jacobs-produced Renaissance, digitally on December 8… a full year after Vince first spotlighted the band and album in an ‘Unsigned & Unholy’ column. You can check out the first single, “About War,” via the below video. It’s not quite my cup of tea — I like the heavy parts, but there’s too much early/mid-90s alt-rock-style reverb-soaked barely-singing. But it is very hear why this particular band wanted to work one of the djent’s forefathers. And as far as I can tell, Jacobs did a good job, which is not surprising.

So… maybe you’ll dig?
