Hello! After listening to your music the first thing I asked myself was: Where do you find your inspiration to write the lyrics of your songs?

In my surroundings, the world. In me too. It’s a reading of the world through a human filter, my person. There is no objective view of the world beyond its own perception, in my opinion. So, listening to PORN is a bit like seeing the world through my eyes …



"The Darkest Of Human Desires" is the second album in a trilogy.These 3 acts, was it a choice taken from the beginning or a choice that happened during the making of the first album "The Ogre Inside"?

The idea appeared during the composition of “The Ogre inside”. I found myself limited by the number of songs to express the whole concept. An album is just enough to create an atmosphere in my opinion. An hour is short, but enough. While to create an evolution, it’s more complicated … As there are three main periods in this story, I started on the model of the trilogy.


These albums is about a character named Mr. Strangler. Could you tell us a little more about this character, his story and what is behind him?

Well, I’ll be able to talk about the first two parts. Mr Strangler is a killer. We can consider that the first part, “The Ogre Inside”, deals with his childhood and adolescence. It is a turbid period during which the personality of each is formed. And sometimes this personality can come into conflict, colliding with what the world expects of you. The future Mr Strangler feels that he is a killer. He is torn by what he feels, what he is and what society expects of him. I materialized this conflictual state by the inner ogre. That anger, that frustration, that pain that gnaws at you from the inside. The Ogre is the personification of evil being. From this angle that exists between what we are and what society imposes on us to be.
In “The Darkest Of Human Desires”, Mr Strangler is no longer in struggle, there is no longer any inner conflict. He accepted his killer nature. It can be said that he is “freewheeling”. With his team he devotes himself to his favorite hobby: kill. In a way, the Ogre has disappeared. We can say that he has conquered him or that he has become the Ogre.


A quotation extracted from your work "Contoyen" is inside the cd.Are these albums related to this one and which is it?Why the quote "The inner ogre was going to become me and I had to live so many things I already remembered"?

The concept of the Inner Ogre appeared during the writing of the novel “Contoyen”. The main character, Dimitri, often expresses the impression that an inner Ogre is devouring him. I wanted to develop this concept and this trilogy was born.
This quote sums up Strangler’s state of mind. Finished the inner struggle, he became him. The Ogre is no more. Unless he has become the Ogre.


Do you already have a name or a name idea for the 3rd album and last act of this trilogy?

More or less. The songs are almost all written and the fate of Strangler is sealed.


Your artworks are made by David SC. How did you discover his work and how did your first collaborations take place?

He is a friend of friends. Everything is going wonderfully. He perfectly integrated the concept of the trilogy. David makes all the visuals (albums and single / ep). I explain the concept of each album and single and he makes me proposals. He is based in Montreal. Our exchanges are by email or Skype.


Can we also suppose that he will realize those of the next album?

Absolutely. Those of the next album as well as the single EP! It’s really an advantage to work with people who understand your expectations. It saves time and saves a lot of energy.

To see the work of the artist:


Have you ever had any problem with the name of your group? With your friends and / or your family? Has it ever closed you doors?

I think it’s closing doors, undeniably. It’s funny because sometimes people think it helps us … So try to find us on the net just by typing PORN in a search engine.
Beyond that, the word itself is a quasi-evil word. Go and put this word in a discussion … Most do not admit it but all are uncomfortable with this word …
A lot of fans tell us that they do not dare to wear our merch!
However, I’m proud to be in a band called PORN!


You are close to your fans, we can see on YouTube that you answer, sometimes with a lot of humor, to all the messages. Is it important to you?

Absolutely! After the concerts, systematically we go to meet them. These are privileged moments. It makes them happy. We exchange with them, they take pictures of us at their side … We must not forget that the public is your real boss. Not your label. It is the public who finances you! The least is to give them the respect it deserves.


I leave you the last word for all our readers.

We are PORN, you are PORN! Thank you all and see you soon on the road.
