From the Void to the Infinite Industrial, Rock Porn 'From the Void to the Infinite' is the latest album from French industrial metal artist Porn. It's been roughly a year since they released their album 'A Decade in Glitter and Danger'. It's easy to hear how the band has evolved just by listening to the first track on the album called "I Died Twice". This track opens up with some effect drums accompanied by a nice synthesizer line that follows the track all the way to the end; this is a very melodic track with some really heavy guitar riffs. "Love Like War" is the third track and offers almost a pop like touch, mixed with electro and it sounds really damn good, especially with the very distinct vocals from the singer. A funny thing is the middle track, if you can call it that, which is a very minimal track that just confuses you amongst the guitars and melodic hooks. I am not really sure if it's a joke or if it's some kind of pause track between the other tracks. Anyway, I am having a hard time finding flaws in this release, it has great guitars and melodies and vocals and the songs are interesting, varied and you never get tired of listening to the album. The combination of heavy, fast and slow tracks are also nice and it keeps things interesting and fresh. I won't say that Porn has invented a new style or create something completely fresh, but what they do is creating great industrial metal/rock and I hope the next album will be as good as this one, if not even better. I just hope they skip the two filler tracks, because they just destroy the listening experience. 450
