The Great Escape - Music & More

In their 14 year history Portal have traversed an new path into the depths of subterranean and surreal terror in the guise of Death Metal - created by the long standing members Horror Illogium and the Curator, the art form has taken a life of it's own. The cinematic aura of Portal is reminiscent to that which is emitted by films of the likes of Fritz Lang's M, Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, Murnau's Nosferatu, and Salvador Dali's Un Chien Andalou and also the visionary arcane mind spewings of H.P. Lovecraft and August Derleth literature, whom of which Portal have paid tribute on occasion. Portal invented it's own unique birth of Olde Worlde machinations, beings and the overall dimensions uttered on the two full lengths. 2003 debut album Seepia displays a destructive aural assault as rusty and antique as the artwork portrays, a bastardisation of Beherit & Immolation in recognition, however the texture, brutality and overall sickness leaves the listener polarized. Seepia is the frequency of the Vint-Age, the usher of Outre.
