Portraits of Past - 01010101 (1998)

An early but great progressive hardcore record. Portraits of Past were one of the first to stretch thrashing hardcore songs into 8 minute opuses. Theyre melodies and early post-rock vibe made them a certain forerunner in both the hardcore genre and the post-rock genre.

Thanks for filling in a gap in my emo (sure, call it progressive hardcore if you want, but it's not exactly snappy) history, really powerful album. Complements the Shotmaker disco nicely.
