PORTRAYAL OF GUILT release new EP; streaming new split with SOFT KILL!

PORTRAYAL OF GUILTby Molly Kinnunen
Soon after their recent release of new 6-tracker Suffering Is A Gift (scroll down to listen), Texas vicious hardcore punks PORTRAYAL OF GUILT are back with yet another new track called “Sacrificial Rite”, just released on their new split 2-tracker with frequent IDIOTEQ guests, post punk act SOFT KILL! The former brings a hellish, fierce attack on your eardrums, while the latter offer a tangibly joyful track called “Tin Foil Drip”. It seems inevitable that both bands will continue to go on to garner higher and higher levels of recognition. Great stuff!

PORTRAYAL OF GUILT – “Sacrificial Rite” lyrics:

The ceremony has begun.
As the sun sets, the tide of blood rises.
My mind will soon be at ease, knowing my time is coming to an end.
Then I will know the luxury of eternal rest.
Now lay the veil over my head and let me drown in my sorrow.
When the sun rises, everyone will see.
You’ll never know my pain no matter what you choose to believe

SOFT KILL – “Tin Foil Drip” lyrics:

Live from a world of empty threats.
They can break bones.
Sent home in a wreck.
The less then sudden yell.
The raised voice of despair.
Chimes briefly in the air.
Broken hearts that never tell.

Alive was wearing a green velvet dress.
And her eyes were wild.
She was dancing in the basement that no one left in days.
We were making jewelry out of candies and paint.
We were wrapped in scarves.
When I got cold we would snuggle underneath the carpet.
And no one cared.

Pushed down crooked steps.
We left home.
They crept alone in jest.
The joke got lost on me.
A raised voice that kept me there.
Lungs that can’t hold air.
Broke hearts, the coldest stares.
Chimes briefly in the air.
Oh Broke hearts that never tell.

Alive was wearing a green velvet dress.
And her eyes were wild.
She was dancing in the basement that no one left in days.
We were making jewelry out of candies and paint.
We were wrapped in scarves.
When I got cold we would snuggle underneath the carpet.
And no one cared.
