A Predator's Portrait is the third full-length studio album released by the Swedishmelodic death metal band, Soilwork. It was released on 19 February 2001 and will be reissued on 15 October 2013 in the U.S. and 18 October 2013 in Europe. This is the last album to feature Carlos Del Olmo Holmberg on keyboards.
This album is considered by many as the band's finest hour, possibly their most popular (followed closely by their follow-up Natural Born Chaos), and the transitional album that set them apart from other Swedish death metal bands. This is the first album where Björn "Speed" Strid started utilizing clean vocals mixed with his traditional screaming style and the first Soilwork release to be on Nuclear Blast. The album was recorded at the same studio and at the same time that Opeth recorded their album Blackwater Park.
"Shadowchild" is a rerecording from their reissue of The Chainheart Machine.
