TEXTURES Drummer Stef Broks Voted ‘Best Dutch Drummer’ in Popular Dutch Magazine SLAGWERKKRANT!

TEXTURES Drummer Stef Broks Voted ‘Best ... - 2011-09-01

2011-09-01 - TEXTURES drummer Stef Broks has been voted ‘Best Dutch Metal Drummer’ and ‘Best Dutch Drummer’ overall by the readers of the Dutch drum magazine Slagwerkkrant. An award show to celebrate this achievement will take place in the beginning of September. This is the first time in the magazine’s history that a specific metal drummer has won both awards.

“This is really bizarre. I've never considered myself a drummer's drummer,” states Stef Broks. “Of course I practiced a lot on drums, but not Donati-style. Most of the practicing happens on my knees and....in my head. 24/7, creating rhythmical- and song ideas. I am a reader of Slagwerkkrant since I was 9 years old, playing along with Yes and old U2 songs. Winning these awards is really flattering, but doesn’t mean I don't want to make progression anymore. On the contrary! Thanks to you all!”

Recently, Stef’s first play-through video for the song ‘Singularity’ was released by the American drum webzine Sickdrummer.com, and can be viewed now at Sick Drummer’s YouTube channel. ‘Singularity’ is cut from TEXTURES forthcoming album Dualism, which is set to hit stores on September 23rd in Europe, South America, Asia and Australia and September 27th in North America via Nuclear Blast. Dualism can be pre-ordered from Nuclear Blast webstore; pre-order bundles that include band t-shirts can be purchased from Bandstores.com. All Band Store Merch pre-order bundles will be automatically entered into a raffle to win a TEXTURES Mayones guitar. Fans can stream the new track ‘Reaching Home’ at RevolverMag.com, and listen to‘Singularity’ on the band’s Facebook page.
