Troglodyte are the bigfoot themed death metal band you probably don’t know about, but should. They’ve been around since 2005 and have, with new album The Hierarchical Ecological Succession: Welcome to the Food Chain, four full lengths of gnarly, meat and potatoes death metal that sounds like a big, bloody slab of top shelf filet mignon tastes.
