Experience the misanthropic Industrial sermon of ATHOTW’s”Goddamn This Waiting” Video

Portland, Oregon’s At the Heart of the World are back with another cut off their upcoming 11-track album, Reaching Perfection, Tasting Death, set to debut this fall on Glory Kid Ltd. Today we have the pleasure of bringing you, lucky reader, the video debut for “Goddamn This Waiting,” a two-and-a-half minute agony of computerized melodies and tortuous Reznor-esque vocals. Elegant and garish at once, At the Heart of the World’s specialty in crafting aural biomechanical sculptures is on full display, and at its terrifying best.

The video is drenched in 90s sensibilities paired with a visual unease that compliments At the Heart of the World’s industrialized menace perfectly. Equal parts lighter (though still heavy) Godflesh intertwined with the youthful fury of Youth Code, “Goddamn This Waiting’s” trawls its uneasy depths with a visual flair akin to Type O Negative’s verdant gloom.

“Musically we delved full on into our love of pop music but sent through layers of distortion and noise,” said guitarist and programmer Danny Porter. “Lyrically the song is about your body failing on you and destroying itself while you struggle to save it in a futile way”

Reaching Perfection, Tasting Death will be available 11/22 from Glory Kid Ltd.
