Named after the classic ‘Pornography’ album by The Cure and influenced by early 80’s electronic noise
exponents such as SPK and Esplendor Geometrico as well as the 80’s/90’s dark rock lineage of Bauhaus,
Fields Of The Nephilim and Type O Negative, Porn are led by Philippe Deschemin, who has published
a sci-fi novel (‘Contoyen’) and several short stories since the release of his group’s previous album in 2011.

A milestone record for the band, the concept of ’The Ogre Inside’ is based on the ‘Contoyen’ novel.
From the 90’s industrial rock sound of album opener ‘Sunset Of Cruelty’ right through to the brooding
goth-metal atmosphere of the title track that ends the record, Porn take the listener on a journey into the
darkest corners of the mind. Scattered with voice samples of Aleister Crowley, it can be taken as an
invitation to fight the (great) beast, the Ogre that threatens to devour.

 

 

Porn formed in 1999 when psychology and sociology student Philippe Deschemin decided to start a band.
Strongly influenced by the original industrial scene (SPK, Esplendor Geometrico), post-punk and goth rock
acts (The Cure, Killing Joke, Fields Of The Nephilim) and industrial rock/metal (KMFDM, Marilyn Manson),
his mission was to create aggressive yet sexy, powerful, dark and dangerous music. As he describes it :
“something like a beautiful, tasty fruit with a razor blade inside.”

The band released its debut album in 2004 and an EP a year later, which are currently available together
on the collection ‘A Decade In Glitter And Danger’. These were followed by a second album in 2011 entitled
‘From The Void To The Infinite’, plus the 2015 covers and remixes compilation ‘Deconstruct’, which followed
the publication of Deschemin’s first novel, ‘Contoyen’.

Deschemin is also a member of the group An Erotic End Of Times, who released their own debut album
in the spring of 2017. Aside from his musical and literary career, he is a visiting lecturer in political
philosophy, a journalist and publisher.
