4.5 superbTheSpirit CONTRIBUTOR | July 11th 19

False's newest effort Portent is a modern incarnation of Emperor's symphonic bombast filtered through 25
years of black metal evolution and supplemented by USBM's knack for twisting genre staples into something new
and previously unheard. And to be honest, there really is nothing that sounds like False; Portent takes all the
conventions of overly pompous black metal - orchestral backdrops, furious blasting, winding tremolo guitars - and
whips it all together into a maelstrom of melody and chaos. Thanks to their roots in the Minnesota DIY and
hardcore scenes, there is a underlying punk pastiche that makes the record feel real and grounded despite its
potential to burst through the stratosphere. In a year where black metal is dominating (especially the black metal
coming from the band's label, Gilead Media) False matches their peers' excellence and raises the bar for
everyone else.

3.5 greatDDDeftoneDDD | July 22nd 19

Super cold and fast paced BM. Drums and bass are amazingly fast. Vocals are BM classic, but pretty flawless. Guitars are tremolo grandiose. Recd Tracks - The Serpent Sting, The Smell of Goat (THIS TRACK IS BEAUTIFUL)
