On September 8th, Solar Flare Records will release the second full length album from French noise rock outfit Pord, Wild. The album will feature 40 minutes of intense, noise laden rock and roll that would make Amphetamine Reptile blush, and we have your first taste! We at American Aftermath are happy to bestow upon you the opening track from Wild, “Staring into Space”. The track revolves around a dirty, rumbling bass lines and sparse, dissonant guitars that eventually lead into a hard rock stampede hellbent on causing blunt-force trauma. We dig it and so should you. You can check out the track after the break along with the album’s artwork and track listing.

Until then, check out the bands latest track “The Misery We Make” after the jump. Continue reading
