Portall - Code Black

After the releases of 3 demos in the past few years “Code black” is the very first full length release of this Dutch Thrash Metal outfit. Razor sharp straight-to-your-face riffing meets some melodic parts and also a few Death Metal influences. No doubt: the guys know how to materialize their vision into cool songs with recognition value. Being obviously inspired by Kreator, Slayer and Machine Head, the band also adds some The Haunted-like components to their sound. The vocals are a hybrid of typical Thrash Metal shouting and Gorefest during their “Chapter 13” period. The result is a great album with independent ideas and songs with lots to discover like the fantastic lead guitars or the unpredictable melodic details. This nice musical cocktail is well-produced and will surely find new friends within the Thrash Metal scene. Well done, guys.
