Fucking great band (and not just biased being on the same label) - as someone else said they're one of the few bands doing something new and exciting with DM nowadays, and probably the ONLY one doing it with any degree of genuine skill. They sound like your brains being sucked out by one of those giant slugs from Starship Troopers or something. I have Seepia on LP and CD, and Outre on CD. Need to pick up the LP sometime.

Total shit, total wall of noise.............The only way they could suck more is if they released a split with LUST. What can I say ????? If it don't have a good riff, it won't catch me..............regardless who does it.

Fucking lunatics! I bet they lose a lot of weight playing in those damn suits... I would probably pass out after ten minutes or so! Gotta see them play some time.

that lust comment is pretty hilarious although i completely disagree with the opinion. there are some incredible riffs on outre (and seepia) but you just need to listen to it a few times. the murkiness of the production (on outre) may be difficult to wade through on the first few listens but once you begin to understand the song structure and the riffs, the murkiness adds another dimension to the recording and it is well worth the extra listening effort you invest. i fucking worship that album.

on a related note, i will be putting out a vinyl version of the stargazer/invocation split cd that came out a few years ago. invocation is pre-portal and it fucking destroys. and of course you know how briliant stargazer is.

thanks for the support. im hoping to have it out before winter, but there are a lot of variables especially with our economy quickly disintigrating.

I've only got Outre but it's one of those albums that you can get lost in.
Great stuff

I enjoyed Outre - and Seepia and The Sweyy were alright, but definitely not one of my favourite bands. Like morten said, I don't quite "get" Portal.

Another "avantgarde" gimmick band. Sounds and looks like nonsense to me. They belong on Southern Lord.

no way...i mean no doubt that teh southern lord/aquarius records types all like portal but they like portal for all the wrong reasons. go back and listen to any portal recording and you hear true metal. it may be obscured at times because they actually take chances in an effort to produce a unique sound but in the end they are playing metal as solid as any other number of bands out there. im not much of a fan of their imagery and stage look...the music is what i admire.

Only relation bewteen PORTAL and INVOCATION is that two members of PORTAL were in INVOCATION at one stage and PORTAL was going before they even joined INVOCATION, which was still going for some time minus the two PORTAL members. So, INVOCATION isn't really pre-PORTAL

I filmed this gig, which was killer in my opinion! A lot of people seemed very bored and chatting a lot during their set. They use a lot of low lighting (close to none) and have a very cold and dark atmosphere. Very ritualistic in a sense.

I prfer to listen to their music alone as a lot of people don't "Seem to get them". I don't think they we're out to have people "Understand them" either. I think they are brilliant regardless! To each his own!

Haha, no offense, but you guys should stop with that Southern Lord obsession.


Portal is an awesome band, "The Sweyy" and "Outre'" being their best releases in my opinion.


Mister Blood Of Von, any chance you could send me a copy of that video? Very Happy
