Band Information

Portal an avant-garde death metal band from Brisbane, formed in 1994. Portal's music takes its inspiration from the works of HP Lovecraft. On stage they often appear cloaked and hooded with vocals shouted through a megaphone. Portal appeared at Metal for the Brain in 2005 and then stood down from live appearances to concentrate on further recordings. The 2006 demo "Lurker at the Threshold" served as a three-track sampler of the band's next album. Outre was released in late 2007. The next phase of their existence was marked by the release of Swarth in October 2009; the band appeared at the Maryland Deathfest in May 2010. In early 2012, Portal toured Australia with Absu and Ruins. Following the recording of an album during the year, Portal then toured with Marduk in early 2013, with Vexovoid being released around the same time. The band toured with Absu once again in 2014.
