God Complex have recently unveiled the music video for latest single Breeding Filth. The video focuses on the horrors of modern humanity, with particular influence taken from a news article on the chemical weapons attack on the Syrian town of Khan Shaykhun in early 2017.
Guitarist Kyle Holt explains “The video for Breeding Filth is a statement that goes hand in hand with the tracks subject matter. It’s a commentary on the dark side of human nature and the evil that we are capable of. It’s also an invitation to those who are angry about the current state of the world to stop passively accepting what they see; to let out their anger”
features on God Complex
’s behemoth forthcoming EP Created Sick
, due out on 5th October on Venn Records.
Produced by Loathe’s Erik Bickerstaffe, Created Sick explores both personal and political messages, examining issues such as the war or personal struggles with violent and disruptive relationships. The EP also encompasses God Complex’s undeniable growth this past year, whilst screaming with the potential to come.
“We see people growing more enraged as the World becomes more polarised in the face of numerous man-made threats. We want our music to be a catharsis for anyone who listens, as well as a wake-up call from passively accepting what they’re experiencing. Once you accept that you’ve been handed a set of circumstances that are impossible to overcome, and you realise the expectations society places on you are based on a set of outdated ideals, it is easier to open your eyes to the morally bankrupt side of the human race.
This sort of subversive attitude ultimately influences how we want to style ourselves. The goal we all have is to craft an image that is in your face, that’s echoed in the lyrics of each track. No subject is off limits to us and we leave no stone unturned”
