PORTRËIT sent me their demo EP in early 2017 and right away I was taken aback. With gutteral screams of anguish and pain washing over either dreamy instrumentals or pummeling hardcore, these German screamo folks have got their shit together and mighty quick. Although the EP is only two tracks, technically each side houses numerous songs but they were all recorded together. The vocals bear a strong resemblance to bands like Arches, My Life With The Spaniard as well as Matt from Cease Upon The Capitol, Dolcim and Subjects/Rulers fame, which are very throaty and lyrically difficult to decipher. The guitars, in particular, stand out most boldly when the music chills out and lulls the listener in with plodding, melodic, single note or chorded progressions. Check out the opening of "A" for a prime example or tail-end of "B". If you only have time to check out one of the 7+ minute sides I'd recommend shooting for "B" first although both are excellent. I do hope in the future they break up the sides and post individual songs or perhaps most will be recorded again for subsequent endeavors. I'm very interested to see what pops up next from PORTRËIT.
