Well it's like 20 years ago since the last time i posted an instrumental/math-rock band here on this blog and i kinda miss it. And i found this one, a good band from Copenhagen called Town Portal. During last summer they spent their time recording a 6-track EP entitled Vacuum Horror. It was recorded by themselves and mixed/mastered by the mighty Carl Amburn (Russian Circles, Self-Evident, Riddle Of Steel etc.). And here's a little description of the band:

Town Portal play instrumental rock that crosses borders of genres. Tapping on experience from earlier endeavors in genres like death metal, shoegaze and math rock, the three members bring components of it all into a melting pot, creating a unique niche of original melodies and harmonies, fixated on a skeleton of complex and playful rhythm structures. Under the dogma of forsaking vocals and other superfluous effects, the band throw themselves into a search of new meaningful ways to compose tones over time, with a heavy and dry precision.
After a European tour in 2010 and a minor row of Danish shows, they released their debut EP entitled Vacuum Horror in late 2011. The EP was followed up by another European tour in the beginning of 2012. In Denmark the EP was praised in several large- and small scale magazines, and the opening track Rosini is currently in rotation on national Danish radio, DR P6. A surprising outcome for an instrumental band, with its roots heavily planted in the DIY scenes ethics and methods. At the moment they’re preparing the recording of their debut album set to be released later this year.

Well, if you love the band like self-evident, you must listen to them now, i bet you will love them too!! Enjoy it!!!
