Editorial Reviews

2009 release from the Australian Death Metal band. An enigma within the realm of Death Metal, Portal have defined themselves, over the course of two full-length albums and a handful of demos and EPs, as a bizarre and frightening entity with a unique and unparalleled sound. No other band currently in existence has such a polarizing effect on the underground Metal scene--they are regarded as either pure geniuses or incomprehensible noisemakers. Their madness and chaos is the soundtrack to a F.W. Murnau film gone terribly awry. Swarth slowly crawls under the listener's skin and penetrates the psyche. This eight-track monolith combines the off-kilter dynamics of their debut with the surging atmospherics of Outre, taking their sound to new ungodly levels. No other album released this year is as unique or frightening as Swarth. Portal is the future of Death Metal.

Portal provide the soundtrack to one of the most horrifying, riveting and shocking movie that was never made with "Swarth". There's is the nightmare that you never thought could exist and yet there is an element that is completely addictive about their avant-garde take on death and black metal. If you ever experience Gorguts' "Obscura", just imagine it twisted ten times over and set on fire. There are no rules for these men of absolute shadows and I haven't heard a band yet that can compare to the crushing darkness of their sound. Grinding chord progressions and unholy and fast sweep picking are (dis)order of the day. It all may seem total chaos, but there is an insane order to the creepy chaos of "Swath" that those who are sonic adventurers must hear.

Portal is definitely the most innovative death metal act these days. Swarth, the 3rd full lenght release (there's a hard to find ep also) is the perfect soundtrack of a horror movie, and epic horror movie, something like a disturbing vision of our future, as we could hear a monster approaching, getting near and near, the chaos being installed in our lives, the panic of things to come...that's what you feel when listen those songs.

The artwork is perfect, somber and dark, fitting the sounds perfectly. If you are sick of the million death metal bands that sounds the same, give Portal a try.

This recording is like some kind of unholy disfigured thing that lives in the mustiest corner of your basement. Only this thing is in reality a pan-dimensional, galaxy roaming beast that can only achieve a debased simulacrum of human form. To call it ugly is too simple, for it is awesome in its hideousness.
