PORN – ‘You Will Be The Death Of Me’ New Video

The French industrial-goth metal band Porn have just released their third album,’The Ogre Inside’,
from which the song ‘You Will Be The Death Of Me’ has a provocative new video available now.
Porn leader Philippe Deschemin describes the song as being about “life, death and love and the
fact that love is like humans – mortal. I am obsessed by death, which I see everywhere. Everything
ends, everything dies. And sometimes, maybe always, being in a relationship means to kill the
previous version of yourself. You change, and in a way you die, to be reborn as another you. The
new video is a metaphor for death, a ‘mise à mort’, and I wanted to place the female protagonist
in the dominant position.”

 

 

 

A milestone record for the band, the concept of ’The Ogre Inside’ is based on the sci-fi novel
‘Contoyen’, written by Deschemin and published in 2014. From the 90’s industrial rock sound of
album opener ‘Sunset Of Cruelty’ right through to the brooding goth-metal atmosphere of the title
song that ends the record, Porn take the listener on a journey into the darkest corners of the mind.

 

 

Named after the classic ‘Pornography’ album by The Cure and influenced by early 80’s electronic
noise exponents such as SPK and Esplendor Geometrico, the 80’s/90’s dark rock lineage of
Bauhaus, Fields Of The Nephilim and Type O Negative, plus post-punk and industrial rock/metal
acts such as Killing Joke, KMFDM and Marilyn Manson, Porn formed in 1999 when psychology
and sociology student Philippe Deschemin decided to start a band. His mission was to create
aggressive yet sexy, powerful, dark and dangerous music : “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.
