Hi Philippe (aka Mr Strangler) and welcome to Grande Rock. Well, it seems that the “Mr Strangler” trilogy has come to an end. How do you feel about it?
 
P: Happy and quite sad! It was a great adventure. 3 albums, 12 music videos, so many remixes by so many great bands: Stabbing Westward, Chris Vrenna from NIN, Orgy, Combichrist, Jimmy urine from Mindless Self indulgence, The Anix... A lot of amazing gigs!
 

PORN - No Monsters in God’s Eyes – Act III

“Act III” – the trilogy is over. What started with “The Ogre Inside”, about Mr Strangler, continued with “The Darkest of Human Desires” and concluded with “No Monsters in God’s Eyes” and Mr Strangler’s execution. This is a dark trilogy about Mr Strangler and his unspeakable acts and dark desires which express the “true-self” of a twisted mind… a “monster” if you like, but as the title suggests none is consider to be a monster in God’s eyes!
