Ezra Claverie This record sounds like a nightmare about listening to Immolation's _Close to a World Below_. Portal is to regular death metal as Lucio Fulci movies are to regular horror movies: hallucinatory fever dreams that put the audience way too close to something appalling.

Anthony Rotolo Portal has been one of the most imaginative metal bands on the market for a while, splicing ominous darkness with pure unrelenting technical ability. This album is a wonderful capstone to their discography, capturing their unapologetically dire sounds from albums past with new ventures. I would like to call out the track 'Spores', a flurry of noise working in parallel with the song's title.
Olde Guarde is easily their best.
Incredible.
Now if they could just tour North America... Favorite track: Olde Guarde.

Mark Lindhout More direct than previous albums, this only lays bare the grinding, swirling madness below the surface. Although it is not mad, merely on the outer borders of that which is considered sane.

This album is as much an exploratory undertaking in the aesthetic sense, as it is a personal answer to a world in disarray. Favorite track: Olde Guarde.
