The practitioners of disseminating product from the gnarliest acts of the noise rock/metal scene, Clermont-Ferrand, France-based Solar Flare Records, confirms the upcoming release of the second LP from their country mates, PORD.
A trio formed in 2002 in the darkest depths of rural Lozère, France, PORD’s brand of output evolved very quickly toward something much rougher and wilder than imagined. A powerful brand of noise rock reminiscent of reference bands such as Dazzling Killmen, Keelhaul or Craw, a blend of complexly structured compositions with the throbbing and hypnotic undertow that the trio is so fond of, along with a sometimes heavy and powerful, sometimes twisted rhythmic section, backed by incredibly tortured vocals emerged. Amidst years of regional touring, PORD released a plethora of independent singles and mini releases in addition to their debut LP, Valparaiso, released in 2011.
In March of 2014, PORD raided Rec Studio in Geneva to record their sophomore LP with Serge Morattel (Knut, Tantrum, Ventura, Basement…), dubbed Wild. The strewn but cohesive nature of the band’s output on Wild is as contagious as it is caustic, the album’s output showing a renewed musical evolution, with PORD’s typical raging sound coupled with a hint of straight rock and roll on a number of songs. With a faster pace and precise execution, their taut and aggressive delivery remains intact throughout the nearly forty-minute venture. The vocals also evolve toward a more rasping, primitive and offbeat rendering of cruder and increasingly straightforward lyrics.
Solar Flare Records will bedazzle the humans with the release of Wild in September via digital download, CD and both black and swamp green/bone splatter 12” vinyl this November. A final release date and album details as well as multiple tracks from the album will be leaked in the coming weeks.
