Portals to a Better, Dead World
Broken Limbs Recordings // Halo of Flies Records
31 October 2013
|Texas blackened punk duo CARA NEIR return with their newest and most powerful record to date: PORTALS TO A BETTER, DEAD WORLD, a followup to their sophomore full-length, 2011’s impressive Stagnant Perceptions. The LP, which will be released on October 31, 2013 by BROKEN LIMBS and HALO OF FLIES, will be Cara Neir’s first vinyl pressing. The result of painstaking, time-intensive attention to detail, Portals to a Better, Dead World sees Cara Neir on the very top of their game and a chance for fans and supporters to own something truly special. Those that have followed Cara Neir’s increasingly sophisticated and accelerating career will not be disappointed by this ferocious, catchy album.
“The fact that a band can bring together so many different sounds and still sound cohesive is a laudable feat.”
Broken Limbs has long been a supporter and fan of Cara Neir’s talented multi-instrumentalist Garry Brents and vocalist Chris Francis, releasing last year’s cassette split with Ramlord, and Halo of Flies was more than happy to jump on board. Members of Lonesummer and Ramlord have also lent their vocals on several tracks.

Available for pre-order in early fall, 500 12″ copies of Portals will be pressed, 100 on smoke green and 400 on black vinyl. Included are an insert, download code and full color jacket with art by Nate Burns of Vit. Limited special packages featuring a bonus cassette and shirt can be purchased from Broken Limbs while supplies last.
“The impressive thing about the duo that is Cara Neir is their ability to change direction with successive releases whilst staying true to their sound”

Cara Neir is an experimental black metal two-piece from Dallas, TX who formed in 2008. Drawing from a variety of influences, the duo shapeshifts throughout their discography in a disquieting and near-schizophrenic approach to black metal and crust.
