Beyond Good and Evil
State of Decay
The dynamic rock band Pornorphans have finally arrived at a full album after a few promising
early releases. The band are fronted by the irrepressible Jytt who lends them a unique flavour.
The rest of the band are also skilled musicians as the album shows. Opting for a hard and varied
sound they strike gold at every turn. The techno flavoured "Creeping Beauty" has Jytt sounding
downright mischievous, like a naughty angel. "Drift" is slow and brooding and displays a more
sensitive side to the band. It has a filmic feel that is very suggestive.
It's followed by the dirty sounding "Filth Master". It has a tainted allure that's impossible
to resist. If Marilyn Manson had written anything half as good, I might have liked him better.
But he hasn't so it's good Pornorphans exist.
Another great song is the explosive "Shiva". This album reinstores my vaining faith in rock
and points to a brilliant future for Pornorphans.
