DARK PORTRAIT
"FIEND INCARNATE"
Self Released

Hailing from the darkest corners of Greece comes the Black Metal monster know as DARK
PORTRAIT. DARK PORTRAIT
formed in 2010 with the intentions of playing some
really dark and magical music. They have succeeded in this attempt. The band plays
majestic Black Metal music that is fused with some Gothic Metal elements. The music is
highly orchestrated and powerful sounding. They have combined the darkness of Black
Metal with some melodic and mythical Gothic Metal to create their sound. There are so
many levels of their music that each new song sounds completely different, but is all
connected as being
DARK PORTRAIT. It seems like a lot of bands playing this style have
died off in the past five or so years, but it's nice to see some fresh new bands keeping these
sounds alive. The vocals are done in a harsh throaty and groggy Black Metal style with
some melodic and dark Gothic vocals mixed within. If you were to take the best parts of
DIMMU BORGIR, CRADLE OF FILTH & CARPATHIAN FOREST and mixed them
all together you would end up with
DARK PORTRAIT. This is very fine with me, because
I am a fan of all those bands. If they keep putting out well thought out structured and
skillfully played Black Metal like they have on "FIEND INCARNATE" they will find
themselves sitting right next to the bands mentioned above as some of Black Metal's finest!
