This is some UK emo of the first order. I'm talking 1995 Subjugation Records, Tree Records, Ida, Hated, September kinda emo. Both bands have a different take on the sound but both absolutely nail it. This is so refreshing - it brings me right back to being 17 and blasting Owltian Mia - I just keep flipping it over and over. Seriously if any of the aforementioned bands/labels means anything to you, then you absolutely cannot go wrong here. This is a split release with lots of labels - DIY cooperation forever.
On their gut-wrenching debut album "Let Pain Be Your Guide," screamo revivalists Portrayal of Guilt demonstrate their transcendent potential, beyond a shadow of a doubt, in a blinding flash. Bandcamp Album of the Day Nov 30, 2018
