label write up, track listing...

Australian surrealist death metal terror unit PORTAL have completed work on their anticipated fourth full-length album entitled “Vexovoid”, the four year follow-up to their “Swarth” predecessor.

Taking their sound of singular death metal psychosis by creating their darkest and most-dense sounding album to date, “Vexovoid” carries the tradition PORTAL have laid upon since their inception 18 years ago. Through the band’s strange, unsettling, avant-garde, and polarizing take on death metal (on a musical, lyrical, visual, and aesthetical level), throughout the years PORTAL have shape-shifted and inverted the genre into multiple realms of dementia. “Vexovoid”, as expected, is another dreadful and frightening observation of unorthodox death metal terror unparalleled.

To be officially released on Feb 19th (LP version to be released not too long after the CD version) and featuring artwork by Reverend Kriss Hades, tracklisting for “Vexovoid” goes as follows:

1. Kilter
2. The Back Wards
3. Curtain
4. Plasm
5. Awryeon
6. Orbmorphia
7. Oblotten

Oh - I agree! thats why I go broke - getting both vinyl and CD for my digital needs -- I am lucky to have a IT job in a cubicle and I get to listen to my earphones for almost the entire day. (no turntables allowed in the workplace).. But Swarth is a grower - give it more listens - just as good as Seepi Evil or Very Mad a

Yeah! I've been revisiting SWARTH recently at my office job, and once again I am convinced that it's one of my favorite albums released in the past couple years. My co-workers must be convinced that my feet are possessed, the way I tap along to these songs.

I still think the cover art is a trifle ordinary for them

TALKING about?


The only good artwork Portal has had so far is the cover of Outre. This new album artwork is a lot better than the last and 1st albums.

New song sounds good.

Love the sample song, love the artwork. A new Portal album is always great news.

Close up its actually pretty fucked up, and watching the spiders and the last bit of detail being drawn by a bloke who was a good 30 beers in swaying around and watching Hannah on a fucked black and white tv makes it even more so


Makes me like the art even more.

I can assure you the rest of the album's artwork and layout is sick, easily the best presented Portal album (artwork and layout wise) since the Profound Lore version of "Seepia".

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.

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!
