Portrait Finally Announces New LP Plans

Swedish heavy metal outfit Portrait will release their eagerly awaiting full-length, ‘Burn The World’, worldwide via Metal Blade Records in just two months, on August 25th.

As a grand gesture, Portrait and Metal Blade have released the album’s title track as a lead single. “Burn the World” can be heard right here, just below. With this one little taste, it’s evident that Portrait have stepped up their proverbial game. The song’s attack is swift and furious and they’re pushing their genre–crossing tendencies yet further. “Burn the World” plays like a challenge to themselves and their contemporaries to stretch the perceived boundaries of, while remaining very much within the realm of, true high-quality ‘traditional’ heavy metal. So, hear it now for yourselves. Check in regularly for additional information as it comes.

On the general sonic trajectory of the new LP, the band offers a comment: “‘Burn the World’ is our fiercest one to-date, holding all aspects of Portrait within it, yet in an even more dynamic, empowered and elevated form than its predecessors. Expect nothing else than sheer heavy metal rage dedicated to all forces that seek to end this world through their fires of adversity.”
