Pretty rad, albeit standard 2nd-Wave black metal. Nicely atmospheric, and solidly crunchy.
| ||Portal ION|
In the past, I've felt like Portal's murk shrouded their ridiculously bizarre instrumentation; it was easy to lump Portal in with other atmospheric-leaning death metal groups like Gorguts, Abyssal, Grave Upheaval, or Aevangelist. With "Ion", it lays the bare bones out and shows in extreme proportions how ridiculous this stuff is.
| ||Orthrelm OV||3.0|

Solid blackened death metal, but wears its influences on its sleeve. Ultimately, it sounds like
Behemoth's sting with Goatwhore's punch. Pretty effective, but entirely unoriginal.

Is it black metal? Is it post-metal? Is it jazz? Who cares? This is awesome.
|Voivod ...And everything from a Swedish band called the Crown.|
|Voivod Tbh, from the names you mentioned, I know Entombed, Six Feet Under and Gorefest, all of them truly legit for a certain period in their heyday. Be sure to check Swan Song from Carcass, I never get tired of this album.|
|Voivod I have listed some of them in my year-end lists.|
|Voivod Thanks man, I really appreciate it. Now about death n? roll, I love it, but of late, I haven?t come across any new and interesting bands. Imho, the closest genre to it is crusty death metal, and there where interesting outfits are aplenty.|
|foxblood if u haven't i rec you check out Devoured by the Swirling Night first, it's more blackgaze and Blood Moon kind of evolves from that|
