Band: PORN
Country: France
Title: The Ogre Inside
Label: Echozone
Year: 2017
Style: Industrial Gothic Metal

I have no idea if naming the band Porn was a good idea for the French dudes, but it seems that the major inspiration for this, contrary to what we would think, was the Cure's album "Pornography". This is their third studio album, and it definitely sounds like something done by a band with this name, I mean it's both seductive and raw, both erotic and industrial-cold. There's a lot going on inhere, from multiple layers of synths ranging from industrial to electronic, to metallic guitar riffs, to melancholic keyboards, to a solid rhythm sesction that will make you bob your head for sure. The vocals are good, warm and fit for this genre, but they lack of something to really stand out, not sure if that's due to their timbre or to the compositions in themselves; I would have liked more catchy passages somehow. Think of a mix between Fields of The Nephilim, The Cure, Type O Negative, David Bowie and Tiamat and you'll be close to what Porn offer on this third full length album.
