Death metal juggernauts TROG have unleashed their single “Horrific Dream Imagery“. The song is from their upcoming album Of Vomit Reborn which will be released on July 22nd, 2022.
The band comments “We have been working tirelessly over the past year to bring ‘Of Vomit Reborn’ to life, and we are so excited to finally be able to share this first track with the world. “Horrific Irrational Dream Imagery” details the chaotic hallucinations unleashed upon the victim of an involuntary drug-induced psychosis. It’s a quick kick to the face designed to disorient and crush the listener as soon as they hit play. We think it does a pretty decent job of that. Hope y’all enjoy it as much as we enjoyed makin’ it!”
Initially forming as a three-piece in 2019, TROG (formerly TROGLOROT), released their debut EP Cave Dweller in the same year. The following years led to developments in both the band’s line-up and creative direction, and TROG are now ready to unleash the gory delights in Of Vomit Reborn on July 22nd, 2022.
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.
