This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.




The relentless, Swedish beast known as Portrait spawned in the year 2006 with the intention to bring back the dark energy that was once the cornerstone in many a classic metal release. Having taken the underground by storm, the band signed to the small labels Iron Kodex and High-Roller Records and released a celebrated debut album in 2008. The album received rave reviews in magazines like Terrorizer (8,5/10), Rock Hard (8/10) and Sweden Rock Magazine (8/10) as well as in the underground press. The release was crowned by two European tours and several appearances at well-known festivals like Keep it True, Sweden Rock, Headbangers Open Air, Hole in the Sky, Hell's Pleasure, Up the Hammers and Muskelrock.
In 2010, Portrait signed a multi-album deal with Metal Blade Records, and will now unleash its second opus upon the world.
