Death metal outfit Portal stomp forth from their home Down Under (apparently Australia, not Hell) to deliver a new track from their forthcoming album, ION. It’s called “Phathom” and boy is it crushing. Strap on a helmet and press play:
It’s quick and dirty as with most Portal output. Unrelenting drums and guitars create a hellscape for the creepily airy vocals to hiss over. From the sound (and look) of it, this album is going to be a dark, menacing piece of death metal and will surely cast a shadow over the new year when it drops on January 26.
This is the second song from ION, “Phreqs” being the first. Both tracks can be heard over at Profound Lore Records’ Bandcamp page, where the album can also be preordered physically and digitally. Be sure to follow Portal on Facebook!
