Portrait - Crimen Laesae Maiestatis Divinae
In May 2011, the Swedish Heavy Metal band Portrait gonna release their second album which has a latin album title, as you've already read above. They bring us fine old-school heavy metal in the tradition of Mercyful Fate and others...
I'm also proud that I can add not just another black metal band - which isn't a critique. But it's nice to see that there aren't just evil black and white guys running through foggy forests out there which use latin chants for singing about Satan and darkness... well, ehm, Portrait sings about Occultism as well. Maybe they are a black metal band, but they don't know it yet. We'll see.
By the way, the album's title means The crime of having offended/ injured the divine majesty or, in other words: blasphemy.
"Crimen Laesae Maiestatis" is the medieval term for having committed a crime by acting against the majesty or insulting him by words.
