When you devote most of your career on themes about cosmic terrors annihilating mankind's senses, at some point you have to wander what is left after the psychological Armageddon is over. Hagbulbia explores that scenario.

Portal have surely carved a name for themselves with their impenetrable sound, intriguing themes of cosmic horror, and an inhuman intensity. With over two decades up their sleeve and plenty of bands drawing inspiration from their murky, cavernous sound, it is still gratifying to know that Portal keeps its own identity intact.

ION
7.0
Albums that sit somewhere in the 6 - 7 range for rating are often some of the most disappointing, because, while not terrible, they often end up leaving such a strong impression of "this could have been better." With the fearsome, commendable reputation they've acquired over the years, the nightmarish Portal would probably be one of the last bands one would ever expect to drop such an album. But, for better or worse, we find ourselves in such a situation with ION.
