Port Noir: Any Way The Wind Carries
Cinematic Swedes get tooled up for their sophomore album
Has Love Andersson always sounded like Maynard James Keenan or did he choose to sing like him for Port Noir?
That Anders Fridén of In Flames picked Port Noir as one of his first signings to his label Razzia Notes should say something about the quality of their output and their second album offers up a more interesting platter of sonic titbits than debut Puls. The blend of forlorn and cinematic progressive rock set against a backdrop of post-metal and 80s-inspired sounds provokes a gothic atmosphere that sits comfortably beside Leprous’s last few releases.
