Monsterworks Posts "God" Music Video

Monsterworks has posted a music video online for the song "God," which can be viewed below. The video was compiled from band footage taken on March 26th, 2011 at Zed One Studios in Camden, London. The band also commented on the clip:

"This is the title track from The God Album by Monsterworks, released on Casket Music 28 February 2011. The general philosophy of the album is summed up well by the Marcus Aurelius quote used at the beginning. The song is a general commentary on religion but also specifically deals with the god of the Old Testament. This character could easily be considered 'unjust' according to the Aurelius definition (e.g. sending floods to drown children and suggesting putting to death anyone who works on the Sabbath etc).

"The point is, the most popular gods of today (as always) are promoted by a system of control with a threat of divine punishment to force you to follow their rules, no matter how crazy they sound. If you have had some kind of experience that makes you a true 'believer' then you can take comfort from that and hopefully use it to live a better life, but realize that religion itself is usually only a barrier to the happiness of yourself and those around you. ...enough of the philosophizing. Enjoy the metal!"
