about

Dark Portrait unleashes their debut album titled “A Harrowing Atrocity” to re-awaken the art of Symphonic Black Metal. Incorporating emotional atmospheres, black metal and a touch of classical elements; Dark Portrait has crafted their own sound identity.

Α Harrowing Atrocity unfolds like a mist of emotion through tales once lost and buried beneath the modern world.

Through gloomy passages and ice cold perspective, these stories are captured in subtle changes of dark moods.

Let the soundscape take you by the hand and lead you along a path of dark imagination. The darkness is a comforting lover and a maiden of witchcraft. So hold tightly dear listener for what once you thought was but despair, is in fact both savior and devourer of souls.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Α Harrowing Atrocity is well produced to bring out the very best in sound quality but not being over produced to lose any of the raw emotions. This is an album that is sure to send shivers of delight and chills to all who hear it.

Dark Portrait has indeed arrived… and with evil intentions…

Track Name: Incantation For Lamia
Oh forlorn Lamia mourn for your children

Half snake half harlot
Sleepless praised sleepless raptor

Walked in deserts dressed in red
Hissing noise willing men

Sucked their blood and ate the offal
Slitted throats, broken oaths

Envy made her child-eater
Keep it as a secret

Dwells in lakes
Of her maze
Wait in haze
Enraged

Woe to all mothers and the lovers
Impaired and ashamed by a goddess
I follow the trails through the madness

I hear the bells
And I follow the stench
Into the inner depths
Of barren hell

In a filthy cell
I see her dread
She is eating sullen
Children's dregs

Queen of the snakes oh disgrace
Don't lose your pace come with me
To show you the way and set you free

MY SWEET LAMIA

Can you hear? Behind the trees are lonely whispers
Feel their grief decapitate all their sickness

Bow to me I am the one I am the sun
Bleed for me I am the prince of the abyss
Praise me I'll give you children to play with
Gobble them all and vomit on the fucking cross

And I see her smile
It is so divine
Like summer's night
At holy July

I’ll built a shrine
Just to be on your side
For the rest of my life
My heart is thine

My sweet Lamia
Track Name: The Rise of the Anti-Christ (feat. Iliana Tsakiraki)
Our lives
A symphony of lies
Eye for an eye
With our sacrifice

Our lives
A symphony of lies
Eye for an eye
With our sacrifice
He'll rise

Hark my wrath; I saw them pray through the opaque glass by sacrificing a lamb

The marks were sharp, the rain tasted like blood, and my time had come

I took my husk and walked away to infernal paths but the pain was vast

Greed and sin can make a man weak so they took me down to the river Styx


How could I ever believe in a world of dreams?
Life is like a sea in melancholy
Painted and shaped by him through the eclipse

Sirens called my name and the boat sailed

As the waters bloomed, deep down into the
Womb my heart was doomed
Cold air scratched ten black swans and
Before the dusk the mermaids sang

Please
Don't leave him here...
He is the real
Oh
Feel the fear
The end is near...

Suddenly a light from behind
Shined into the night
I felt pure evil inside me

Howls lost into the fire
Human's flesh my desire
I impaled all the liars
With no denials

Gabriel was crying under the lights
Bloody shapes crossed the sky
Creatures chanted lullabies
For me

Nephilim will rule the earth
And all the saints will burn in hell

This is the rise of the Anti-Christ

Diaboli intus me
I came to bring the wrathful tyranny

Our lives
A symphony of lies
Eye for an eye
With our sacrifice

Our lives
A symphony of lies
Eye for an eye
With our sacrifice
He'll rise
Track Name: Cassandra's Tragedy
Don't return
Crawl back to your grave

Seven seas far away in a place full of disdain
I found Cassandra crying in front of an empty grave

In her hands was holding an inverted cross
And she told me to run away before the nightfall

But I denied...I stayed there...and

Darkness born
Necromancers stole her soul
A black halo with thorns
Make her flesh change and her world erased

Shattered hopes
Had fade away
She became one of them in a night
With the moonlight to emphasize her demon side

Feelings broke from hate and then they fade away
Cause inside her heart was painted a pentagram

I crossed rivers and paths alone at dusk
Looking for answers about what had happened

But no hope...I stayed there…And...

Darkness born
And I knew that I was lost
Frozen thoughts passed away
Her story...an endless pain

40 years buried in her grave
Her shadow has lost its shape
But her skin has the same texture

Cassandra embrace your sins
Confess your crimes and your blasphemies
You have to leave from this life
Cause I know

Revenge... Woke your dead body to haunt those who hurt
You in the past
They raped you when you were young in
Your sanctuary

And the worship for you had gone
Your sorrows died beneath the sun
Evil burned your flesh
Please don't return back again

Cassandra's tragedy
An untold story
Full of blasphemies

Darkness born
Necromancers stole her soul
A black halo with thorns
Make her flesh change and her world erased

Shattered hopes
Had fade away
She became one of them in a night
With the moonlight to emphasize her demon side

Now you are free
Don't hide from your sins
Let them go...
Track Name: As I Die
Don't return
Crawl back to your grave

Seven seas far away in a place full of disdain
I found Cassandra crying in front of an empty grave

In her hands was holding an inverted cross
And she told me to run away before the nightfall

But I denied...I stayed there...and

Darkness born
Necromancers stole her soul
A black halo with thorns
Make her flesh change and her world erased

A part of my soul
Is dark and cold
Like a sunken ship
In the worst of the storm

A part of your soul
Is dark and cold
Like a colour blue
Painted in a hole

Fires were falling on you
And I was praying
To a god
Without a name
Cause I was scared

But my prayers lost in gloom

Save me from these flames
Before it's too late
And nails get inside my veins
No
I can feel them now as I die
As I die...

A part of our souls
Is dark and cold
Like a lost
Unknown ghost

The end was falling on you
And I was begging
A god
Without a name
Cause you I was scared

But my prayers lost in gloom

Save me from these flames
Before it's too late
And nails get inside my veins
No
I can feel them now as I die
As I die...

Your lust for me vanished forever
I see it now as I die

As I die
As I die
As I die
As I die
Track Name: Beauty is Frail
Disguised into a Christ then sodomized by acolytes
Drained all of his shame under the veil of grey
Shades faded in the glare and the clocks paled, seemed profane
Pride lost in the night, he used to hide where lights collide

Scourged by fate and blaming the flame for his ugly face
So shame
Whispering names and during the day he was screaming
The phrase "beauty is frail"

Breaking the mirrors and reads to his demons
The words of the saddest songs
Closed to his cage that no one could break he was sitting
And praying

Praying

Beauty is frail

Begged the stars for love
Wails embrace his heart

Afraid conquered by hate broke his chains a rainy day
Vice into his eyes feelings entwined on flickering skies
Changed in bestial ways fucking the grail while looking the flame
Vile dirty inside purity smiled like raped concubine

Sitting and playing inside the haze, where shadows parades
And ravens awaits
Dragged outside by ten acolytes, they came from behind
Oh cruelty divine

Mocking and kicking to his ugly face and fucked like a whore
Behind the glades
Shaking from fear and dressed with his tears
While screaming the phrase Beauty is frail

Beauty is frail

Scratched his skin for bliss
Knelt to him and scream

Why me?
I feel grim...
Misery...
Let me sleep...

And end this suffering...
Track Name: The Arrival
Listen, the steps
Feel his breathe
Near your neck
Is here for you
Track Name: Fiend Incarnate
Bloodshed outside my door
A dirge was written on my walls
Corpses on the floor
I want to bring back time

When my eyes are getting red
Memories are coming back again
My heart turns into stone
And my faith falls

I don't remember what I've done
I just want my life back...

6 1 6
Nemesis does not exist for me
I won't sleep
I saw Mora in the mist

I don't remember what I've done
I just want my life back...

In the light I grow
In the dark I crawl
At days I am blessed
At nights I am cursed

In the dark I grow
In the light I crawl
At nights I am blessed
At days I am cursed

I rise beyond the skies where the angels cry...
I live beyond the seas and I am in your dreams...
Leviathan is my name fiend incarnate...

My hidden face has open his gates

All they've been amputated by me
I just need the Enochian keys
Now I see clearly
I'm the king of purgatory

When my eyes are getting red
Memories are coming back again
My heart turns into stone
And my faith falls

I don't remember what I've done
I just want my life back...
Track Name: A Harrowing Atrocity
Years ago in a village in north
Where rites done
An inhuman story was born
By a man who sold his soul

Voices captured his mind
as sinners wine
And made him a beast
And lost his beliefs

Congregation for all those who couldn't see
Atrocity spawned the agony
In oddity she is emproidering sins
With our blasphemies

Bundy was a man that fell in love
With a woman who had cracked his heart
Disharmony swelled in his head
And he... wanted her dead

Seeked her lips on the throne of red
Laced with the way she used to smell
Went to her home and hid under the bed
Waiting for her

And when she came love became hate
He got out her eyes so she didn't have to cry
He got out her guts and put them to her hands
And made her dance to the name of Satan

And when she died for the one last time
he made her love and the journey to madness had begun

From that day.. he became insane..
He was killing for fun.. women who had no heart..
Alone and locked... in his ghastly home..
He made orgies... with rotten corpses...

Sulphurous.. necrophilous and dim
Fascinated by the rotten meat
Suddenly he was starting to think
Based on delegacy...

Collected the best body parts
From every woman who had fucked
And cut them one by one
To make his perfect match/muse

Damned and sad

Ate their tongues

Kissed their art

And fell apart

In the sickest melody froze
In the saddest memory broke

He never... been loved...

Never felt loved

Blackbirds flew... straight to the moon...
Weeping for you... sad but true..
My son I knew.. life is so cruel...
You can't be sure.. for anything and anyone..

A night decided to give an end
With a hammer smashed his own head
Until the brain completely melt
My son rest in peace in this
Harrowing atrocity...
Track Name: Ode to Scorn
Years ago in a village in north

Track Name: Ocean of Pain
Invoke the ghosts from the underworld to raise the horns and burn them all
I command to eat their gods and those who chants at the city of mass

Bloody hail to eden’s graves and to the gates of Hades

Took the blame and blessed the place where Cain killed Abel

Ode...to...scorn... that's only I want

More...than...love... I feel lost

Hypnotized by the parasites who embodied in my hive

I slew the ugliest slave when everything seemed vain

Loathe... you... all... pathetic swarm

Yearn...your...hearts... behind your backs

Daimona

Don't let me go

None...can...stop... chaos in a

World...so...cold

Disgusting mass you worthy holocaust under the stars from us

Eradicate the human kind and all the lies that hide inside
