JAKE PORN - SOMETHING DIFFERENT
Metal To Infinity
what’s in a name… If you receive a promo from a band (a man?) which calls
themselves Jake Porn, you can go all the way in many different directions.
Is this a gimmick, is it just a humoristic approach or do we have to deal
with porn addicts that are more into the real meat pleasures…
Who can say, even the internet seems to be retarded if you want to get
more info on this band. With a word like Porn in your band’s name, you have to
do real efforts to navigate into musical websites, believe me!
let’s give it a try and see what they have to offer..
The name of the album is called ''Something Different'', which is a
harbinger of lot of directions. The opener of the album is called
‘Rollercoaster’ and in less than three minutes we hear a lot of interesting
things. The guitars are loud and messy, the vocals are better than expected and
the overall impression is very positive.
The chorus lines are inviting to sing-along, the arrangement is worked
out well, and I was curious to listen to more songs of this band.
The next track is called ‘Partyzone’, and again we hear loud guitars
that are played at high speed and with a lot of melody.
The musical direction
of Jake Porn is no metal at all, but can be described as modern day rock
and roll with influences from Nu Metal, a little punk, but above all they
succeeded in giving the songs an own identity that might be considered as the
PornStyle that they preach.
album takes about 36 minutes, and we get a lot of rock/alternative songs that
can be considered as great material when played on ten in a smoky pub. Just blow
your speakers and tear down the roof, and you will have a lot of fun while
listening to tracks like #3 ‘So What’,
# 4 ‘Flame’ and #8 ‘Save Me’.
we also get a nice ballad called ‘My Decision’, and I’m sure that a lot of
the American oriented rock acts would be proud to bring this songs on their
in all, we have to conclude that Jake Porn is above the average, and they truly
bring something different. If
they want to emerge from the underground scene, they should reconsider if they
want to keep this name. It’s
bringing the musical capability to a lower level, and they won’t be
taken serious by those that never heard of them…
My rating: 81 / 100 (Review by Patrick De Sloover)
