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.
Troglodyte, Kansas City’s neanderthal death metal act, needs our help!!!! Rob Zombie, Machine Head, Amon Amarth and Children of Bodom will be stopping by here on an off date Mayhem Fest show and we all know who needs to open this bad boy for us. That’s right, TROGLODYTE.
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.

The first drum video worship post of the new year! I bring you international favorite George Kollias and local favorite Chris Wilson! George Kollias can be heard playing with Nile and be sure to catch him when he tours the North Americas this Spring. Here are some videos of him drumming through some radical Nile tracks: Sacrifice Unto Sebek, Ithyphallic & The Essential Salts.
But first, check out Chris Wilson’s video for “Oregon Trail”. His band Troglodyte is one of the most well known and brutal death metal act here in Kansas City! Just see for yourself! If any locals are reading this, be sure to catch them tomorrow night at the Riot Room!!!
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.
This sounds great except for the fact that one of the guitars seems off. Like the cable is going out or the pickup battery needs to be replaced. This is awesome.
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.
I managed to capture two songs during their set. Troglodyte performed well and now you can see 2 songs for yourself! First up is “Beaten and Eaten” and the second track is unreleased so far, brand fucking new. the song is called “Crippled Foot Cast” and it’s bad ass. Check it out.
Feb. 29th, 2012 – The Beaumont Club – Gornography just left the stage and we all go about our business and wait for the next band to come out. Luckily, from one good band to the next, Troglodyte is coming up to kick our asses and drag us back to the swamp! Kansas City death metal titans Troglodyte waste no time and they get set up and go. In traditional Trog fashion, they just start ripping their fretboards up and the double bass and blasts from the kit are welcomed by the crowd. We liked what we heard, we liked what we saw. The lights stayed green, just how they prefer. The music was loud and crisp. The screams/growls & grunts were terrifying. Troglodyte was out to get you.
Troglodyte ripped through their set with intensity. They began, raped, then left us all dead in a ditch. I was outside between bands so I missed the main intro but walked in right when they started their first song “Bring Me the Head Of Bigfoot“. Right then, there was no turning back. Just to simply put it, nothing but barbaric attacks and infectious grooves happening on stage. Guitars and bass sounded good, vocals were clear and monstrous and the drums were severe trauma to the body. The only thing that was a little lack luster on stage was the singer, he seemed either tired or uninterested. He wasn’t going insane like I’ve seen before. Kinda just walking back n forth and going through the motions. Usually this motherfucker is jumping around, headbanging and going absolutely ape shit.
Feb 29th, 2012 at The Beaumont Club here in Kansas City, MO. Gornography technically wasn’t the first band to take the stage but they damn sure were the first band to get shit going. Gornography is a technical death metal band who are actually local and personally to me they are easily the top 3 metal acts in the Kansas City, MO area. This was my first time ever seeing the band perform live however, all previous enjoyment of the band has been through audio only.
Gornography kicked off their set with the song “Visions of Gore“, which is one of the first songs I heard from the band. The sound was loud, thick and heavy. From where I was standing, dead center and up front, I could hear the vocals pretty clearly, bass guitar was barely audible and guitars were a little faint. Drums were as clear as day though as Chris Wilson pounded on the kit faster than anyone in the entire Midwest. The lighting wasn’t anything particularly special because it’s an opening technical death grind band, they do not need gimmicks, weird lighting and bullshit like that. Gornography just comes out, fucks your face and leaves. The way I like it.
New song AND Troglodyte are apparently coming out with a new album later this year! Fuck yea!
If you like TROGLODYTE, then you’ll enjoy GORNOGRAPHY. I mean it’s the same fucking drummer. Watch this in 1080p and full screen it. Start your morning off right!
I’m subscribed to Chris Wilson’s (Drummer for Troglodyte) YouTube account and he just posted footage from 1992 of Cannibal Corpse playing out here in Lawrence, KS. The entire fucking set! This is vintage brutality! What a way to wake up!
Thank you clwilson666! clwilson666 (Chris Wilson) is actually the drummer for Troglodyte! Make sure you check them out as well, great local band. Cannibis Corpse, All Shall Perish and The Black Dahlia Murder invaded Lawrence, KS earlier this week. Here is some footage from that show.
