Terror-filled fifth full-length album from Blackened Death Metal heathens
COMMENTS:
Australia's Portal have released their 5th full-length album of terrifying blackened death metal and its hella creepy. Much like their previous four albums, you can expect lightning-fast, discordant riffs, simple (but effective) drumming, and horrifying whisper-like vocals. However, the major thing that stands out is the superior production. Muddy production has always plagued Portal up to this point, but 'Ion' is almost a work of perfection! Standout songs include "Phreqs", "Revault Of Volts", and "Old Guarde". Portal continues to impress with another consistent extreme metal masterpiece! Don't pass on this one.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
discordant blackened death metal
