It's a good troll on the fans though.

A couple of the guys in PORTAL are in a band called Impetuous Ritual (they fucking rule) and they played out here last year. Apparently they're really nice guys. Drink a lot and were down to rage like any metal band should be.


Fuck, this rules!

Every time I see this thread I think of the series of video games from Valve, I'll have to check out the music when I get home from work.

Yeah a lot of the songs from that video game pop up on Youtube trying to look for PORTAL tracks to listen to.

I wanna say his name was Sanjiv or something but Im pretty sure Im just confusing him with the original singer of Carcass heh.


Damn I hope this is true. I'd be a little terrified to eat at any restaurant the Curator may work for.

I forget who posted this in the metal thread, but I imagine fans of PORTAL would enjoy Encoffination:

Fuck it you know? The new album is, like, really cool. I think it in most ways smokes the older ones. Let me in Portal. Oh ok, thank you, for letting me in. Now that I'm here...let me out? Come on, you guys have been playing for close to an hour and it seems like you have lost the plot...wait...Jesus what is this. Open the fucking door.

Keep me, Portal.

I wasn't expecting the banjo and the vocals are bit too clear on a few songs but this is a monstrous, strange and brutal album.

There's banjo on the new PORTAL album?

3:48 on "Kilter."

Okay so it might not be banjo but it sounds banjo-y.

I'm actually pretty proud of the way I've dodged listening to the new one. I'm holding out until I have a copy of it in my hands.

My friends are bigging it up, and righteously so from the two songs I've heard so far.

Can't wait to own Vexovoid.

God, that was cringe-worthy. I seriously felt embarrassed reading it.

I still hate myself for missing them in Cleveland. The new tracks sound like they hold up.

Portal evokes to me what it would be like to be in a stifling, disorienting mansion (built by an insane master carpenter) that's a "portal" to a chaotic dimension, while blindfolded, gagged and heavily dosed with a powerful psychoactive agent.

My initial instinct is that the costumes are too much ... but fuck it all, why not go for the total theatrical package?

Yep. I caught on a few years back and still wonder why I'm so bewildered by their hex. Until the last few go arounds, they were perplexing. Now they're just grandiose...in every sense of the word. Haven't heard the new one becasue I've spent hours and days trying to batten down the hatches. I suspect my battening is faulty.

I'm half way through the new, brilliant The Necks album at the moment, but I'm stoked as hell to watch this video afterwards.

Should be a nice change of pace.

I'm freaking out here. That is fucking terrifying, and with a (I guess) seeemingly low budget. Kind of reminds me the feeling of dread that Al Columbia or Thomas Ligotti create. I want them to make a Lovecraft adaptation right now.
