Portrait Comments On New Album "Crimen Laesae Majestatis Divinae" And Reveals Track Listing

Guitarist Richard Lagergren of Swedish heavy metal act Portrait has issued the following statement about the band's upcoming album:

"The eight songs on 'Crimen Laesae Majestatis Divinae' constitutes Portrait's by far darkest, hardest and most intense material to date. This album is an outburst of a long time of targeted hard work, an intense creative process and pure black magic. To Hell and back and to Hell again! To achieve the goals we had for this album, working with someone not being the obvious choice for our type of music proved to be just the right (or if you will, wrong) decision. 'Crimen Laesae Majestatis Divinae' sounds like Portrait was always meant to. It is hate, and it is love. And in many ways, it is our true debut album."

Portrait guitarist Christian Lindell also commented about the recordings: "Outside the walls danced the plague that is man its one-way dance, so blindly strutting about the path that leads to its ever-hungry end. Inside the fires burned and the cauldron bubbled, enhancing forever the fierce opus that is 'Crimen Laesae Majestatis Divinae'. A beastly support was present in the Necromorbus Studio, pointing us in the right directions all the way through those dark days in November. The songs could not have materialized in a more satisfying way than they have on this album. Prepare to get burnt to ash by its fires, swallowed by its darkness and forever trapped in its boundless abyss, in anguish trying to convince yourself that what you've gone through was only music. If this one doesn't kill you, you’re already dead!"

The track listing for "Crimen Laesae Majestatis Divinae" is as follows:

1. Beast of Fire
2. Infinite Descension
3. The Wilderness Beyond
4. Bloodbath
5. Darkness Forever
6. The Nightcomers

8. Der Todesking
