Once again, Portrayal of Guilt unleashed an onslaught that blended various styles: death metal, noise, screamo, and post-hardcore. This trio from Austin, Texas, United States (US) continues to prove that they can exist outside scene one genre. And can attract loyal fans of a very specific line of subgenres.
Horror Music Video
Director Craig Murray brings the song’s grim implications to life with Blair Witch’s macabre visuals. Trimmed from an initial 15-20 minute edit, this video serves as a short film, building on the sense of uneasiness and suspense that builds up before reaching its bloody climax.
“I wanted to make an immersive film that takes viewers on a progressive journey that seems like it never ends,” Murray said in a press statement. “I decided to leave the opening act as long as I could by expanding the sound of the intro, which is various parts of the song that are slowed down and reversed. We camped overnight in the woods to shoot movies in mostly chronological order. Between us, by the end of the set, we had more than 1,000 harvested mite bites.”
This song works perfectly alongside the visuals. It helped that Portrayal of Guilt basically set out to make a quasi-horror soundtrack with a new album.
“We take it partly in the sense of making a horror film,” guitarist-vocalist Matt King said at the announcement of the band’s new album. “We want to create an atmosphere of anxiety and fear.”
