Band of the Day: Porn

Let’s just skip by the band name and hope facebook doesn’t block the posts because of it and get into some information about… erm… Porn…

Simple things first – where are you guys from?

We are based in Europe, France mostly.

How did you meet?

I don’t recall…

How long have you been playing as a band?

Since 2004.

Before you get sick of being asked… where does the band name come from?

Our name came from The Cure album: Pornography.

What are your influences?

Alice In Chains, Type O Negative, Nine Inch Nails, David Bowie, Alice Cooper, The Cult, The Doors, Killing Joke, Fields of the Nephilim,

Describe your music. What makes you unique? Do you have any particular lyrical themes?

We are working on a trilogy, a concept album. Our last album, The Darkest of Human Desires – Act II (February 2019 ) is the second part of a trilogy. The Ogre inside – Act I is an album about inner struggle, about dark desires, how society can oppress your will. This is a fight no one can win, the Ogre that devours you from the inside always wins. The album is an invocation, a way to set the Ogre free, embrace your ”true” self and allow your darkest desires to express themselves. It’s an incitement to act.

In this trilogy, The Ogre inside won this inner struggle, giving birth to Mr Strangler.

In Act II: The Darkest of Human Desires, Mr Strangler, by embracing his “true-self”, expresses his dark impulses without limitations and has no boundaries. With his crew, Mr Strangler commits murders and massacres. He also invites everyone to take a step forward and act, invites you to express your darkest desires and join his death cult. For Mr Strangler and his team, the Ogre is released! Let the massacre begin! Let the darkest of human desires be… murder.

What’s your live show like? How many shows have you played?

Intensity, emotion and power! PORN has shared stages with major rock and metal acts across Europe: Murderdolls, Front Line Assembly, OOMPH!, Christian Death, Hanoi Rocks, Lord Of The Lost, ASP, CKY…

What are your plans for 2019?

We are working on Act III of the trilogy, to be released in 2020!

If you were second on a three-band bill, which band would you love to be supporting and which band would you choose to open for you? A chance to plug someone you’ve toured with, or a mate’s band we’ve not heard of before!

Marilyn Manson, PORN… An erotic end of times!
