Portrayal of Guilt will deliver their unrelenting and pitch-black new full-length album, ‘We Are Always Alone,’ on January 29, 2021, via Closed Casket Activities. The band, who dominated 2018 with high acclaim from the likes of NPR, Noisey, Stereogum, Decibel, Kerrang!, Revolver, Metal Hammer, The Needle Drop, AV Club, Brooklyn Vegan, Metalsucks, Metal Injection, and more with their groundbreaking release, Let Pain Be Your Guide, return with a shape-shifted and scorching new sound through nine tracks – proving to be more uncompromising and inventive than ever.
Recorded in early 2020 at Cacophony Recorders in Austin, TX with Phillip Odom, mastered by Grammy nominated engineer, William Yip and featuring guest appearances from Mack Chami (Terror Cell Unit, God Is War) Chris Taylor (Pg. 99, Pygmy Lush) and Matt Michel (Majority Rule), ‘We Are Always Alone’ ignites a game-changing, razor sharp, and unique new chapter for the band.
Obscuring lines and bending all genre norms, portrayal of guilt shatter the extremes of screamo, hardcore, black metal, death metal, powerviolence, punk, and noise to reveal their strongest and most compelling material to date. Dripping with dread and apathy, each track of We Are Always Alone, shows the band coping with a splintered society.
