The newest single from Sasquatchian death metal band TROGLODYTE is now streaming. “Sasquashed (Bigfoot Crank Stomp)” is the third track released from the band’s long-awaited new album, The Hierarchical Ecological Succession: Welcome to the Food Chain.
“Sasquashed (Bigfoot Crank Stomp)” tells the cautionary tale of trapping a murderous bi-pedal creature in your basement and getting it hooked on methamphetamines.
TROGLODYTE vocalist Jeff Sisson comments on the song, “The very first song we ever wrote as a band was a song called “Sasquashed.” It was a corn-filled mess. Far be it to waste a terrific title, I repurposed and used for this new auditory tale. The band also wanted to do something that serves as a reminder to those who struggle with addiction and that taking in one of these mysterious “monsters” into your home, while might seem like a good idea, can only end in disaster.”
Shawn Knight (Child Bite, Shock Narcotic) provides guest vocals and the “meth-rant” that closes out the track.
Blood Blast Distribution will release The Hierarchical Ecological Succession: Welcome to the Food Chain on all streaming platforms on 3/5/22. Pre-order the album at troglodyte.bandcamp.com.
Check out previously released album tracks “Meat Your Maker” and “Found Guilty In A Wrongful Death Lawsuit For Shooting A Man Wearing A Bigfoot Costume” at linktr.ee/troglodyte_band.

The Hierarchical Ecological Succession: Welcome to the Food Chain features a rouge’s gallery of names from the metal community. ORIGIN bassist Mike Flores, who has taken part in numerous live shows with the band for years, is making his first studio appearance, writing and recording bass on the new album. Brent Purgason (aka Pustulus Maximus of GWAR), Shwan Knight (CHILD BITE), and Ross Sewage (EXHUMED, GHOUL, IMPALED) also make guest appearances.
The album was recorded and mixed by Ryan Vincent/Apollo Audio Alt (Misery Index, Scour). Album artwork by Dusty Peterson (Cattle Decapitation, Six Feet Under, Lamb of God).
TROGLODYTE has been battering audiences with their unique brand of knuckle-dragging metal for well over a decade. Created by special effect artist and music video director Jeff Sisson as an homage to all things Bigfoot, the “creature-features” of the ’70s-’80s and classic death metal.
With titles like “Bring Me the Head of Bigfoot,” “Mummified Yeti Hand,” “Murderous Bi-Pedal Hominid Rampage (Where are My Legs?)” and “Entrails Torn from a Cryptid’s Gut,” these songs are not for the faint of heart or those without a sense of humor.
Appearances at the annual Gwar BQ, Detroit’s Berserker, Las Vegas Death Fest, and Denver’s Black Sky festival, as well as hundreds of shows supporting touring acts such as HATEBREED, ROB ZOMBIE, and GWAR, have made them crowd favorites.
The current line-up features Mike Flores from the ORIGIN, as well as Michael Langner and Brandon Mitchell from the TORN THE FUCK APART.
