Playing in front of a massive crowd of 13 people, Marasmus opened up the show with fury in their hearts because they ripped it up their entire set. This local death metal act has come along way since I first saw them in early 2008. Creating technical brutality and maniacal drum work, these guys play together quite well and are phenomenal on stage.

Concert Review: Despise The World Tour w/ SUFFOCATION, EXHUMED, JUNGLE ROT, RINGS OF SATURN, ADIMIRON & Local Heavyweights: TROGLODYTE


One of the biggest death metal shows of the year hit the tiniest possible venue in Kansas City, MO. The Riot Room hosted the “Despise the World” tour with Suffocation, Exhumed, Jungle Rot, Rings of Saturn, Adimiron and Troglodyte. I walked into the venue right as Troglodyte began their song “No Beast So Fierce” and it was the perfect way to begin the night. Was The Riot Room going to be able to handle all of this metal in one night? Well, continue reading to find out.

FLOOD 98.9 The Rock’s Facebook, Twitter, website and email stating how badly you want to see the almighty TROGLODYTE open for this amazing set on August 5th at Sandstone. I’m calling it Sandstone, I’m tired of the name change every fucking year.

Oh and if you don’t listen to Trog, well…get caught up son. Like them on Facebook and listen to them on Bandcamp.

trogAhh, you gotta love the smell of SKUNK APE RAPE in the morning. Listen to Troglodyte and buy their new album. YEAH!!!!

Crushing death metal from the Kansas City area, I’ve listed these guys before as wreckommendation of the week but I’ve had repeat offenders in the past. I’ve been listening to nothing but brutal death metal lately and Troglodyte has definitely been in the rotation. I’m sure you fuck will enjoy it.

Headbang. \w/




Mysterious and deadly creatures these guys are. Troglodyte, a local band right here in Kansas City, MO; create some of the best music in the entire Midwest. I’ve been a fan of these guys for YEARS and I figured I’d give them this weeks wreckommendation for a couple of reasons. 1: They make kick ass death metal. They are talented musicians. 2: Not only do they make kick ass metal, they look fucking awesome while doing it. I’ve seen Trog plenty of times and it’s always a good time. 5 masked men singing campfire tales of Sasquatch eating people. That’s cool as shit right? A unique concept and very talented music. Bring on the gore! Enjoy Troglodyte.

Be sure to like and listen to their music on their fan page!
