Ultra clear vinyl, ltd 300, insert, mastered for vinyl by Patrick W. Engel at Temple of Disharmony. Portrait plays absolutely balls out, shameless 80s heavy metal, and they let you in on this poorly kept secret the second the record begins, opening with a tasteful melodic passage, leading into further proto-speed metal flavoring reminiscent of Mercyful Fate, or more uptempo moments of late 70s-early 80s Judas Priest. Portrait is not here to innovate or surprise; they are just here to pay homage to the music that they clearly love, namely the classic heavy/power/speed metal bands of the 80s, back when genres weren’t such a divisive issue and the music came straight from the heart and out into the streets. Picture LP, die-cut cover, lim. 500, lyric sheet, poster. RECOMMENDED!!!
