Staff review by

I fully expect Portrait to explosively materialize out of your stereo, grab your flabby face-flaps with their leather-gloved hands, and scream, "WE LOVE MERCYFUL FATE" into your blood-belching eardrums until you give them your Don't Break The Oath vinyl and they finally go away. I mean that in the best way possible.

  Really looking forward to this and hoping it's great. Their last one became a serious favorite of mine, seeming to pick up right where Mercyful Fate's Don't Break the Oath left off.

Rating: 7 Fans of the NWOBHM wont be disapointed with this one. It sounds Old School and somehow Doom'ish. Good album
