God Complex have revealed that their new EP Created Sick is set for release on October 5 through Venn Records! To celebrate, the band have released lead single Breeding Filth!
Guitarist Kyle Holt says of the brutal track; “Breeding Filth was created before the current incarnation of God Complex came to be. It was always intended to be a single, so it made perfect sense to include it on our first EP. The subject matter was largely influenced by a news article on the Assad regime’s chemical weapons attack on a Syrian town called Khan Shaykhun in early 2017. Initially, focused on war atrocities, the track grew into a more encompassing commentary on the dark nature of humanity and how it shapes the world we live in”

On the EP’s themes which include personal struggles with violent and disruptive relationships and political messages, Holt explains; “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that are impossible to overcome, and you realise the expectations society places on you are based on a set of outdated ideals, it is easier to open your eyes to the morally bankrupt side of the human race.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”
