PTC We need to change the thread title to "Portal (and discussion of Magero's various titles)"

Seriously though... their guitarist gets a bonus awesome point for using an 8-string.

Done . And that's pretty awesome, I actually didn't know of any bands other than Meshuggah that use 8 strings.

EDIT: Nevermind, didn't work.

Intarwebz.
In a Ne Obliviscaris thread on another forum.
Someone said that NeO had a pretentious myspace description (oh the horror ) and I said "It's amazing how when NeO have something slightly pretentious, everyone loathes them and as soon as some guy with a clock on his head gives an interview that makes him sound like he's a prophet of the apocalypse, he's some sort of mystical god."
And it turned out he was a member of the forum.
Good times, good times.


can you link this, im interested even though it seems like a non issue

Usually I like to think I have a long witty retort to combat some ignorant shit on these forums, but... I just can't this time. What you said is just silly.

Plain silly.



How was I being ignorant? The fact that I said they are pretentious or the fact the I disagree with you.

Your throwing around a word you don't quite understand.


Actually you know what, fuck our petty differences. Portal's thread does not need be hindered by this pathetic arguing.

Love me some Portal.

Man, I haven't listened to Outre in forever.

Still don't get it.
Listened to Outre. Sounds like kick drum and feedback.
The entire Portal schtick is pretty hilarious though. Someone told me that they only have one gig booked at this time, the 11th of the 11th, 2011

You probably never will get it, then.

Listening to Portal while playing Call of Cthulhu (Dark Corners of the Earth) makes for some incredibly unsettling moments.
#68
Its a shame your virgin ears "don't get it," mini-Mag, because its some honest to god amazing guitar work. Not just in atmospheric terms, not just in complexity, not just in technicality, but from a purely musical stand point it just makes your balls drop.

Then again Magero Von Sillius the Backwards etc etc

Question: Is this the same portal that used to have a female (Or maybe its a male) clean singer? I have a demo album from a band called portal, there are growls, atmospheric, but down tempo and has a clean singer, and song names include:

Costumed In Grace
Not the Same
Endless Endeavors

No, you're thinking of the (terrible) Post-Cynic Portal.

Ah! Thanks for clearing that up. I loved the stuff on their mypace you showed, and when I searched in my music library and found them and was like Cool! But sounded way too different And curious, what do you mean by "pre cynic", or "post cynic"?
#72
Shortly after Cynic broke up, several members formed Portal.

No, this Portal is completely unrelated. The demo you had was the post-Cynic Portal.

In '04 to like '07 they used to play pretty regularly. Same with most of the bands from the time. The entire 20 people of the Brisbane 'scene' get a bit bored of anyone regardless of who it is.

I respect them for doing what they do. They've stuck to an idea and kept the whole mystique thing going well. Watching their vids, they do indeed play some bullshit technical stuff, but I don't get the point if it just sounds like a wall of noise. I suppose atmosphere is all in the ear of the beholder, but to me, it doesn't feel unsettling, it feels like I'm listening to a TV with a broken antennae.

Its like Opera.
Pull a layman off the street and he will say the viking lady is just wailing.
Get a connoisseur to listen, and he can repeat every word spoken.

Requires a bit of ear "training" if you will.
