Porn – The Darkest Of The Human Desires – Act II (CD Album – Echozone)

By Mar 2,2019

Genre/Influences: Industrial-metal, metal-rock, dark-rock.

Background/Info: The French band is back on track and released two years after “The Ogre Inside – Act I” the second part of their trilogy based on the enigmatic character of ‘Mr Strangler’. It’s all about our darkest thoughts that you allow to enter your mind.

Content: Just like on their previous album, Porn takes off with a real hard and violent song. It reveals the influences of the band, which is mixing metal-, rock- and gothic music. Porn remains faithful to their ‘heavy’ sound, but also brings softer and especially more emotional pieces. This sensibility can be also heard in the production of the vocals, which always remains powerful. The work started a violent way and comes to an end with a more melodic-like final cut. 

+ + + : First there’s the artwork of the album; a great and terror-like front cover, perfectly illustrating the main theme of the album, which also is a wink to serial killers. It matches with the violent sound of Porn and especially their debut song “Choose Your Last Words” is absolutely mind-blowing! The guitar playing is the essence of the work, but I also have to mention the great electronic arrangements. The work has something apocalyptic and tormenting!

– – – : There are a few cool songs featured, but I’m still convinced Porn is missing the ‘absolute’ hit. That’s maybe why they’re still a bit in the shadow of the bands they’re compared with such as NIN, Type O Negative, Marilyn Manson ao.

Conclusion: There always is a beast hiding deep inside of us, but with Porn this beast has been awaken and transposed into a blood-thirsty monster… a sonic ogre!

Best songs: “Choose Your Last Words”, “Evil Six Evil” “Abstinent Killer”.

Rate: (7).
