Coyote Clean Up began as the bedroom project of Ice Cold Chrissy, an Artist, DJ, and Musician from Metro Detroit. Lo-fi conglomerates of hushed and sensuous shoegaze mentalities, trip-hop gloom, deep headphone house, left-field club leanings, breezy pop ecstasy, frozen techno, and experimental ambient excursions snowballed quickly out of control as track after track emerged. Soon CCU spread far from beyond one isolated bedroom in the Midwest to an international camp of risky DJs, warped tape bangers, dancefloor freaks, and car bumping cruisers. No rules and no regulations - just sound from and for modern times.

The approach to Portal's style of death metal has always treaded the fine line between sheer madness and the intricately artful. Cinematic in scope, like a death metal interpretation of The Cabinet Of Dr. Cagliari or the death metal soundtrack to an ancient silent arthouse flick gone terribly awry, Portal have pretty much transcended the interpretation of what death metal should portray, and simply inverted and twisted it to no end. Even moreso with "Swarth". Almost serving as the missing link between Portal's previous abominations (namely "Seepia" and "Outre"), "Swarth" continues to bring the band's aesthetic to new disturbing levels of unease. Musically, "Swarth" is very labyrinth-like, very claustrophobic and suffocating where twisted counterpoint and scathing dissonance merge with earth scraping atmosphere to unveil the inevitable rising chaos. And as usual, with every Portal release, what is surely to divide and polarize death metal enthusiasts who either realize the substance, depth, and genius that Portal portray and the ones who simply cannot comprehend or understand the enigma that is Portal. And those who continue to be indifferent and can't seem to form any kind of opinion or expression because Portal's music is so fucked, uneasy, and just wrong in a way that it continues to push and tear the boundaries of extremity within death metal like no other band can through the filth, mire, and the utter crawling chaos that unearths itself through each chapter that creates a Portal release as a whole. Nonetheless, no death metal band has created such debate and dialogue as Portal have, and surely with "Swarth", such debate and dialogue will no doubt continue, confuse, and perplex. Nonetheless, this is how Portal's music, in a way, thrives.
