Portrait - Swedish Heavy Metal

These guys are absolutely deadly, cant believe there wasnt a thread on them already. They play a mix of lets see.... Mercyful Fate, Bulldozer, Venom, and Priest. Their s/t album is near flawless, pure heavy metal. Their old vocalist is the same lad from Helvetets Port, I think.

Check out a few songs here:

Listening now. Takes a lot for Heavy Metal to leave a mark on me, but Bulldozer and Venom are two of my favorites, so giving this a shot.

I actually have never checked this band out. Judging by the description and the badass cover art I'm looking at right now this should be right up my alley. I'm definately gonna order the S/T.

I think this band was on the list of Fenriz's recommended bands, pretty awesome.

Instantly picked up on the Venom, and Mercyful Fate feel. Christ, this is some good shit.


Very just fast-paced, straight to the metal insanity...for lack of better words.

The scream at the beginning of Darkness Forever is badass and this just emits power. Still haven't acquired their s/t

Some insanely good music here, although the quality of the riffs varies at times IMO. Some of them seem to fall into the "Dragonforce" category. Overall still some of the best recent music I've heard. I love these fukkers.
