TROG strive to 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. The grisly outfit bleed inspiration from an array of acts across the extreme metal subgenres with notable mentions, CANNIBAL CORPSE, UNDEATH, early GOJIRA, DEATH, and MORBID ANGEL. Eerie electronics in the EP’s “Intro” evoke a dramatic sense of foreboding before descending into the deadly depths. Bloodthirsty guttural vocals rise through the heavy instrumentation in “Horrific Irrational Dream Imagery” to a monstrous effect. Bringing high impact with the hard hitting sound of “Cosmic Parasite,” through to the progressive melodies seeping through “Of Vomit Reborn.”
Immerse yourself in the sanguinary of TROG’s latest offering. Brutal riffs, powerful percussion and ghastly vocals fuse together to birth an abominable sound. Deviating with unexpected interludes of 80s style synths, cuts through the dark mood with an equally disturbing segment. TROG have produced a grisly death metal release in “Of Vomit Reborn,” with their own distinctive twist.
