Yep, that reminds me of the reviews that came out for Seepia, almost all the mainstream mags panned it while only the underground zines recognised it for what it truly was. How the worm has turned!


True greatness is never appreciated in its own time..... Cool

Never been into Portal much. They are entertaining to watch live, but the albums don't move me. This new song shows promise, however.

Damn good track. These two songs sound way better than "Swarth" as a whole.

Portal twist time and again from death metal build to black metal blur to noise rock distortion


No, it's death metal.

That's the number one thing I hate about these hipster 'zines. Nothing can be good unless it's a combination of different genres, because that's what "true art" is. What a load of fucking bollocks.

Sounds like Portal. Cool


I agree 100% on that remark. Zine critics these days tend to use that formula. All great works are hated at first and praised later, then the same people who spoke shit about it are all about defending it later...Fucking hypocrites.

"If you a false don't enter" hahaha, that seems appropiate for the ones who salute Portal's work.
Do like that sample song, the bass tracks are quite sick.


Portal are death metal, this is a non-issue.

new song is a little restrained but it sounds great. between the production and the relatively laid back drums it's almost easy listening for a portal song. excited either way, though i thought swarth was a let down.

Yeah and this is why I'm looking forward to the new album more than ever...they've simplified their compositions (relatively speaking of course) on these two new tracks but they're more memorable. Swarth was impressive for a couple of listens but it was just too chaotic...there was nothing to actually grab hold of. Like the worst exesses of most technical metal. Endless widdling.

Killer.

Seems the band found it funny: http://www.youtube.com/user/PORTALDeathMetal

The kid with the acoustic made me laugh. Any way, new songs are great. Looking forward to Vexovoid.
