Taking a break from catching up on FearTWD and being pissed Travis seems to have died to let you know Swedish heavy metallers Portrait will release their new album, Burn The World, worldwide via Metal Blade Records today! For a preview of Burn The World, the new single, “Mine To Reap” is below. I’ve been blown away by everything I have heard from this release so far. Old school heavy metal fans are gonna pull out their hair in excitement at Per Lengstedt’s soaring cries over some classic but aggro riffing and big rhythm sounds. I wish to heck they were on the Dark Tranquility, Warbringer and Striker tour to make it an even more bad ass package.

Anyhow, give this band some support! Not every band makes $5 million a gig like Metallica and so we must nod our heads in approval and save some mead for those who fight for metal regardless of the level of personal gain (besides being awesome, of course). I swear to God, there are many days when I could swear Sweden makes the best metal bands. It is pretty hard to argue with.

Portrait  from Sweden release a new record on August 25th, a (cough) fiery set of songs entitled Burn The World. It seems a fitting title for the direction humankind is headed lately from war to global warming to constant political unrest.

Soaring 80’s-esque vocals recalling Queensryche, Priest and Mercyful Fate style wailing pair with a charged up mid tempo arrangement fans of a classic sound and good songwriting will be enthused about. This song really rips.

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.
