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.”               More »
