Swedish Heavy Metallers Portrait are streaming all of their new album “Crimen Laesae Majestatis Divinae” right here. Fans of 80’s heavy metal a la Iron Maiden should definitely stop to take a listen.

Portrait guitarist Richard Lagergren comments:

“The eight songs on ‘Crimen Laesae Majestatis Divinae’ constitutes Portrait’s by far darkest, hardest and most intense material to date. This album is an outburst of a long time of targeted hard work, an intense creative process and pure black magic. To Hell and back and to Hell again! To achieve the goals we had for this album, working with someone not being the obvious choice for our type of music proved to be just the right (or if you will, wrong) decision. ‘Crimen Laesae Majestatis Divinae’ sounds like Portrait was always meant to. It is hate, and it is love. And in many ways, it is our true debut album.”

“Crimen Laesae Majestatis Divinae” was recently released on Metal Blade Records.
