PORTRAYAL OF GUILT band
PORTRAYAL OF GUILT have unveiled the full stream of “Let Pain Be Your Guide”, their highly anticipated debut full-length! The band’s first proper full-length after a series of 7″ and demo releases, “Let Pain Be Your Guide” catapults the band out of the gates with uncompromising fervor.

Regarding the new album, guitarist/vocalist Matt King comments, “This album has to do with the different types of pain one may go through when living in and accepting the horrors of reality”.

“Let Pain Be Your Guide” was recorded in a basement over the course of 48 hours with Matt Michel (Majority Rule, NØ MAN) in Dunn Loring, VA and features guest vocals from Matt Michel, Dylan Walker (Full of Hell) & Maha Shami (NØ MAN). The stunning visual art for the album was created by Chris Taylor (Pg.99, Pygmy Lush).  Artwork and track listing can be found below.

“Let Pain Be Your Guide” will be released worldwide on November 16th via Gilead Media (North America) and through Holy Roar (Europe).

“There’s rarely a moment to breathe across the album’s 22 minutes, and that’s by design.”

portrayal of guilt deliver their uncompromising debut full-length “Let Pain Be Your Guide”, slated for release on the November 16th via Gilead Media in North America and Holy Roar in Europe. portrayalofguilt have proven themselves as a unique force in hardcore and intense screamo; their Self-Titled 7” and ‘Chamber of Misery (Pt. I)’ 5” are unmatched in sheer intensity, not to mention the razor-sharp assault delivered on their split with industrial-metallers Street Sects.

“Let Pain Be Your Guide” sees portrayalofguilt at a fever pitch; the album is a visceral, multi-faceted attack that blurs the line between punk, post hardcore, metal and more. Akin to the discordant output from the likes of Pg.99 or Magic Bullet’s releases; portrayal of guilt blend high-octane swells of negative hardcore and cut throat metal. Artillery-fire tracks like ‘A Burden’ and ‘Life Holds Nothing’ and the post-punk suffused ‘Your War’ showcase glimpses of warped melodies that diversify the album’s unrelenting nature.
