Portal - Vexovoid (2013)
What happens when you put death metal through the spin cycle of a washing machine? Portal is what happens. Portal's approach to death metal is highly unorthodox, highly abstract, and incredibly dissonant with almost no melody to speak of. Churning guitars and snarling vocals give this album a very otherworldly quality. It's quite easy to imagine oneself being sucked into a black hole as one listens to this monstrosity of an album. While this isn't my favorite style, I can say it's refreshing to know that there are metal bands such as this one that are still pushing the boundaries. Definitely give this one a try if you're up for something very unique and bizarre.
