For fans of: Drift, Union Of Uranus, The Flying Worker, Carol, One Eyed God Prophecy, and Ema Camelia
Neuman Portentum were a band from Orlando, FL super influenced by One Eyed God Prophecy, Reversal of Man, Uranus, His Hero is Gone, Neurosis, Tribes of Neurot, Drift, etc. and played their first show on Halloween 1998 and their last only a few months later before recording with Rob McGregor (Palatka, Asshole Parade, Against Me, Hot Water Music, etc.) in Gainesville, FL in 99. They broke up because they weren't "political" enough for the drummer, and never finished a proper mix of the recordings until now (both Jeff Howe and Jasen Weitekamp from Reversal of Man were consultants on the mix). The most UNIQUE thing about the band is Ron's K.'s Cliff Burton-inspired bass playing. Ron was the life of the band with his huge bass sound, but sadly we lost him last summer... he never got to hear any of the completed tracks, which is a real bummer, considering since he's the one who paid to have the original 16 track tapes converted to digital so that we could mix them.
