France's Porn release 'Sunset Of Cruelty'; first single from new album 'The Ogre Inside' [out 20.10.17]
Porn - ’Sunset Of Cruelty’ - single out 15.09.17, taken from ’The Ogre Inside’ - new album out 20.10.17 via Les Disques Rubicon.
The French industrial-goth metal band Porn will release their third album on 20th October 2017.
It is preceded by a single and remix EP of the album song ’Sunset Of Cruelty’.
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.

France's The Walking Dead Orchestra set to release Resurrect October 13th via Unique Leader Records; new track streaming
French death metal legion The Walking Dead Orchestra will release their second full-length, Resurrect, on October 13th via Unique Leader Records.
Issues the band of the self-produced offering, "We conditioned ourselves to unleash our primal influences, it's a back-to-the-roots process with old-school riffs tuned to the more modern sound. We are proud of this combination. Each song has its own identity. We recorded, mixed, and mastered the entire album by ourselves at our own studio, Spike Recording Studio, which allowed us to keep every step of the production process under control. This gave us the time and freedom to really develop our sound. This album imposes an ambiance with many twists and surprises and the songs structures are more mature. This is a new chapter for the band but also for the Architect, the main character of The Walking Dead Orchestra's concept which takes place through a post-apocalyptic world. The artwork reflects The Walking Dead Orchestra's universe and illustrates each situation our main character goes through."
Pre-orders for Resurrect will be available in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out "Dogmes Anxiogenes" at the Unique Leader Bandcamp page HERE.
Resurrect Track Listing:
2. Resurrect The Scourge
3. Through The Realm Of Chaos
4. Vengeful Flavors
5. Dogmes Anxiogenes
6. Area Of Desolation
8. Siamese Traitors
10. Necrosphere 1
1. Spread The Chaos And Terror
The Walking Dead Orchestra was forged in 2011 in Grenoble, France. In 2012, the band unveiled its first EP Oppressive Procession, and performed nearly thirty shows throughout France alongside the likes of Betraying The Martyrs, UltraVomit, Death Mentality, Agnostic Front, Promethee, and many others. That Summer, the band was able to secure a three-week tour of Latin American with Descomunal which included a performance at Ecuador's QuitoFest. 2013 saw the release of their Klonosphere-issued Architects Of Destruction debut. Offering a more professional production quality, the record was recorded and mixed by Mickaël Valesi at Sonovore Studio in France and mastered by Charles J. Wall (Whitechapel, King Conquer, et al) at Sonic Assault Studio in Florida. The nine-tracks comprising Architects Of Destruction reaped critical acclaim among underground critics in the know with Metal Temple writing, "This release is not merely a collection of tracks about the undead, but an account of what one may feel if lost in a zombie epidemic. The band seems well-equipped for an impending Armageddon." Teeth Of The Divine issued, "With the energy these guys bring, and the crushing breakdowns all pulled off with precision and backed by a beefy production, this is really an impressive debut," while Dead Rhetoric likened Architects Of Destruction to a, "sonic interpretation of a zombie onslaught." The following year, THE WALKING DEAD ORCHESTRA shared the stage with Suicide Silence, Six Feet Under, Napalm Death, M:Pire Of Evil, Loudblast, Benighted, and Mumakil before joining Broken Hope and Internal Bleeding on their European tour in 2015.
True avant-garde Norwegians Enslaved have announced the release of their epic new studio album for October 13th 2017. This 14th full-length masterpiece sets the musical mind-twisters free from genre boundaries and offers an unprecedented mix of prog, extreme metal and shoegaze on 8 tracks with a playing time of more than an hour. Elegantly titled ‘E’, the album was once again written by the unholy alliance of guitarist Ivar Bjørnson (music, lyrics) and singer/bassist Grutle Kjellson (lyrics) and marks the introduction of their new keyboard master and clean vocalist Håkon Vinje. Mixed and mastered at the Fascination Street Studios by the renowned Jens Bogren, ‘E’ heralds a new era for Enslaved. Its cover artwork was once again hand-painted by the Norwegian artist Truls Espedal. As support for their brave sound journey, the quintet brought several guest musicians on board for the songs 'Hiindsiight' and 'Feathers Of Eolh', including Warduna's Einar Kvitrafn Selvik, flutist Daniel Mage and jazz saxophonist Kjetil Møster.

Nearly three years in the making, black metal legends Satyricon have revealed their highly anticipated ninth studio album, 'Deep calleth upon Deep' is set for release on 22nd September via Napalm Records. The opus will be available in digital format, CD digipak and gatefold vinyl options and is now available for pre-order HERE!
The band recently unveiled initial album details and the album’s artwork, an obscure drawing from 1898 by perhaps the greatest Norwegian artist of all time, Edvard Munch.
Recorded in Oslo, Norway and Vancouver, Canada, during early 2017 and mixed together with revered studio guru Mike Fraser (who previously worked on Satyricon’s 2006 album, ‘Now, Diabolical’), ‘Deep calleth upon Deep’ is not just a new collection of songs from one of extreme music’s most enduring and reliable bands: this is a wholesale reinvention and a brand new era in Satyricon history.
Says frontman and visionary Satyr: “Approaching this release, what I always kept in mind is that either this is the beginning of something new or it’s gonna be my last record. If this is going to be the last, then it needs to be something special. If there are more records, then I’d better make sure that this is so different from the last one that it feels like a new beginning. I think it’s really, really dark, very spiritual and filled with confidence and energy.”
'Deep calleth upon Deep' is a profound statement about the essence of Satyricon’s music and the eternal value of art itself. Satyr continues, “The way that I see it is that for any art, be it Satyricon or any other form of art with substance, in order for you to be able to inhale and completely understand it, it will take a little bit of you as well. If you get it all after a couple of listens, you know that it probably won’t stay with you. So the title is saying, ‘From the depth of the people making this record to the depth of the listener…’ If you want to take part in this journey, you should be prepared to dig deep down in the darkest corner of your soul with us."
Satyricon have always excelled as a live band, their evocative performances increasingly becoming special events as their frequency is dialled back to accommodate the Oslo band’s new ‘modus operandi’. In support of 'Deep calleth upon Deep' the band is set to tour on the following dates:
