Portal -- San Francisco, CA -- May 15th, 2010
 
Morbosidad fucking canceled and it nearly ruined the show for me :mad:

Sanguis Imperem:
1. Tyrants of Iron
2. Carrier of Plagues
3. Led to Disaster
4. ???
5. ???
6. ???
7. Humanity's Dirge (?)

Portal:
They played The Swayy, 13 Globes and Glumurphonel, beyond that I have no idea which ones, or how many, it all kinda blended together, and the only reason I am sure of those is that they were announced(ish.) I'm sure it'll be pretty much the same set as MDF in a few weeks.

I'll write a review in a bit.

I had willcall tickets, so I guess I missed the sign that said Morbosidad canceled, but it took me about an hour to find out, and that realllllly sucked because they were pretty much the reason I went. Apparently Senor Stench had to get hired musicians because no one else could get a visa, and then those musicians quit after the show in LA after a fight. :flame:

Dispirit were ok, they used way the fuck to much fog, honestly it was difficult to breathe at time. Ambient black metal, made me a little sleepy, but well executed. They played for what seemed like 45 min and their set was 3 songs long, didn't catch any song titles.
Sanguis Imperem were pretty badass, bestial black metal. Got a patch. At the end of their set they announced that Dio had died.
Portal were fucking weird. I think they played longer because of Morbosidad's dropping off, but they seemed to take forever. I enjoyed it but at the same time I was wondering when it would end, much more droney than I had expected. No clock from the singer, just a pope hat, but they all had their bizarre outfits which looked horrible to play in. I honestly don't know if the guy was speaking (or more horror-whispering) in English, it sounded more like some Lovecraftian thing, I couldn't quite make out much, but they played for a long time.
Sold out show, surprisingly, and there were a ton of hipsters in the crowd. Honestly, more than I have seen at any other show. Pretty lame crowd actually, except Aesop, Ross and Christy from Ludicra were there, as well as Pete Helmkamp and Dino Sommese.

:D

The more I think about it it's the most bizarre thing I have seen.
I think I liked it.
A lot of it is way more droney than I was expecting.

I would love to see Portal. They're like what Gorguts/Immolation/Suffocation would sound like if they played in hell.

Except way more Sunn influenced. And I forgot to mention they played with no lights at all, so the only light was from occasional camera flashes.

To you, I'd see how you'd think they were influenced by drone, but to me I hear minimal drone and a lot more technical/progressive death metal. Tech/prog death metal as performed by Satan, but still...

Every time I hear about this band I get excited for half a second thinking it's the Cynic side project.
