TROG - “Of Vomit Reborn” [FSI-053]
Just when you thought it was safe to put 2022 in the rearview, another disgusting releases slithers its way out of the Frozen Screams freezer!! New Jersey has been spewing choice chunks of death metal these past 2 years since FSI started, so let's shine a light on yet another . .
TROG originally formed in NJ in 2019 + first revealed “Cave Dweller” as a 3-piece. A name change followed (shortened from Troglorot), but this latest offering has no shortage of putrid riffs, gruesome vocals + sick drumwork — alongside incredible songwriting, excellent in-house mix / production quality + perfect 80’s horror aesthetic to make you lose your lunch!
The “Of Vomit Reborn” EP has been stewing under the radar for a few months now, w/ momentum from outlets like Metal Injection + No Clean Singing and a nice shout-out on Anthony Fantano’s “The Needle Drop.” Originally self-released by the band on CD, now it's time to put this to tape — on “vomit green” shell of course! All orders include mini-zine + sticker.
BEHOLD THIS PUDDLE OF MANGLED MEAT!
❄️ KEEP FROZEN ❄️
“TROG deliver a savage old school death metal attack but with a more modern sense of precision, groove, and melody, entwined with an 80s horror vibe.” (Kronos Mortus News)
“Slowly festering just under the surface until now . . . the EP covers everything from straightforward and groovy death metal, to more Death-esque harmonies that wouldn't be out of place on a Phobophilic effort.” (Metal Injection) - metalinjection.net/av/full-album-stream/death-metal-monday/death-metal-monday-new-jerseys-trog-is-vomiting-riffs-everywhere
“Will get your motor running, thanks to all the fast-changing drumwork, the gut-churning bass lines, the needling and slashing riffage, and the gruesome vocal expulsions.” (No Clean Singing) - www.nocleansinging.com/2022/07/09/seen-and-heard-on-a-saturday-plague-years-black-altar-shroud-of-despondency-trog-dvvell-into-the-valley-of-death-homeskin-dismember/
“Gruesome, visceral, and very well done.” (The Needle Drop w/ Anthony Fantano) - www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qvr2labD_Es
