Chris Kringel, the band's live bassist was also involved along with Aruna Abrams handling lead vocals and keyboards.

Portal never officially released any material but recorded a total of ten demo tracks between 1994 and '95. Three of these tracks were featured as bonus tracks on RoadRunner's 2004 re-release of Cynic's groundbreaking album Focus. « hide
