“Australia's enigmatic PORTAL have undoubtedly released their most oppressing work of art yet. Christened Outre, the new album sees the band take their unconventional sound and take it even more towards the beyond than what they conjured up with Seepia. With more of an emphasis on atmosfear and ambiance, this whirlwind of vortex-like surreal death metal terror is not for the weak at heart or for those who like their death metal safe, triggered, clean, sterile, and ultimately standard and boring. In what will go over the heads of the majority of trendy death metal fans today, Outre will once again prove that Portal are indeed outcasts in such a genre. And want nothing to do with it whatsoever... It's time to get back to the ugliness and the filth.” Beautifully packaged in hard cardboard/hardcover stock-like gatefold sleeves, with a designed CD inner-sleeve and a specially crafted pseudo-leather bound and gold stapled booklet.
