New full length Let Pain Be Your Guide out 16th November via the incendiary independent label Gilead Media.
These lads are normally super hardcore. But this is mostly a post-punk effort. It is also dripping with black metal vocals and spells of blast beats. This is a stark and bruising effort from Austin, TX quartet Portrayal of Guilt. In all, it is a swirling and hypnotically confrontational affair that trudges its route through four-foot high brush with a rusty machete. Nightmarish and oppressive, the track doesn’t pummel the listener into submission, rather it erodes the listener’s ability to put up a decent fight. Eventually, it will beat you.
