Portal-Outre (Gatefold Lp)
"Outre" sees Portal take their adhering style of surreal demented bizarre death metal (although Portal really transcend such a term these days, especially in this day in age where most bands that pass as "death metal" present a feeble display, far from what true horrifying death metal should encompass) and take it to a much more disturbing paradigm, than was found on the band's monumental "Seepia" observation.
Overall, such an album as "Outre" will only alienate Portal even more from the so-called death metal scene of today. Were most musicians like to play it safe and typical in such a genre, where things become easy to comprehend, Portal merely transcend all boundaries and go much beyond into a realm where no other band in the genre dare step foot in (on a musical and lyrical sense).
Portal on "Outre" are: The Curator (Vocal Chords, Pulpit Forecaster Dictatorship), Horror Illogium (Seven Deadly Sinews Of Enigmatic Trauma), Aphotic (Seven Maudlin Cacophonic Infrastructure), Elsewhere (Writhin Undertow Omnitidings & Rift), Monocular (The Hands Of Time)"
