Porn – The Ogre Inside (CD Album – Echozone)

Nov 5,2017

Genre/Influences: Industrial, metal-rock.

Background/Info: French formation Porn was set up in 1999 by Philippe Deschemin. All over the years he was joined by numerous musicians while Porn only released a few albums. “The Ogre Inside” is the third full length of the band and the first one in six years.

Content: The sound of Porn is clearly mixing different elements. The result is what we would commonly call industrial-rock. It’s the kind of music appealing for fans of Marilyn Manson, Type O Negative and related bands. After a rather powerful beginning lead by passionate vocals Porn also reveals a softer side, which even becomes a tiny bit  emotional-like.

+ + + : The opening cut is the right way to put Porn back on the map. This is a heavy industrial-rock like song with some electronic arrangements. There’s a real nice twist between both elements while the enraged vocals are totally matching. The guitar playing is the main strength of this work.

– – – : “The Ogre Inside” is not exactly bringing anything new. It’s an efficient work although a little but predictable.

Conclusion: “The Ogre Inside” stands for a rather successful return of Porn although it’s not exactly an album that will enter into history.

Best songs: “Sunset Of Cruelty”, “Death Does Not Last Forever”.

Rate: (6½).
