Albums That Will F*ck Your Face Off in 2013: Portal, Vexovoid
Vexovoid (Profound Lore)
Release date – February 19, 2013
I was lucky enough to recently hear the new release, Vexovoid, from the Australian trio, Portal. It is the definition of an album that will truly fuck your face off.
This has already become the soundtrack to the Housecore Horror Film Festival. In fact, in an interview Philip Anselmo and I conducted this past weekend, Philip sent out an open invitation for Portal to come to Austin, Texas later this year to perform at our film and music festival. Here’s hoping they accept the challenge.
The best way to describe Portal’s aural assault is vicious and uncompromising, yet mysteriously melodic at times. At first, what sounds like nothing more than a cacophonous catastrophe turns into a dark ode to a Lovecraftian netherworld.
If you want to actually experience true fear, listen to Vexovoid.
