Porn – The Ogre Inside Remixed (CD Album – Echozone)

By Dec 24,2018

Genre/Influences: Industrial, metal-rock.

Background/Info:
Porn last year released their third full length album “The Ogre Inside”, which revealed the hard industrial/metal-rock approach of this French band. While this work also is the first part of a trilogy, Porn strikes back before the second chapter with a remix-album.

Content: Six songs from original tracklist have been picked up and exposed to the remix skills of An Erotic End Of Times (6 remixes), Aura Shred (3 remixes), Heartlay (2 remixes) and Thot (1 remix). Four remixes have been made from the title song. Each band has tried to put their own stamp on the original version.

+ + + : You clearly will recognize the original songs while the remixes add something extra. And I especially refer to the great work done by An Erotic End Of Times, which is a side-project of Porn. They added something electronic to their sound, which however remains pretty ‘industrial’-like. The remixes of “Close The Window” and “Sunset Of Cruelty” are worthy of examination. I also noticed a cool remix from the Belgian project Thot.

– – – : I’ll never become a huge fan of albums filled with remixes. I however have to admit this one is not bad at all, but it first of all is a record for the band’s die-hard fans.

Conclusion: The album gave me the opportunity to discover An Erotic End Of Times, but also a few cool remixes. But if you like Porn, you better get back to the original “The Ogre Inside”-album.

Best songs: “Sunset Of Cruelty – An Erotic End Of Times Remix”, “Close The Window – An Erotic End Of Times Remix”, “She Holds My Will – An Erotic End Of Times Remix”, “You’ll Be The Death Of Me – An Erotic End Of Times Remix”.

Rate: (7).
