As if the previously released album tracks “Sasquashed (Bigfoot Crank Stomp)”, “Meat Your Maker” and “Found Guilty In A Wrongful Death Lawsuit For Shooting A Man Wearing A Bigfoot Costume” weren’t enough Sasquatchian death metal band TROGLODYTE have unleashed a lyric video for “Speed Kills” featuring a guest vocal appearance from Brent Purgason (Gwar, U.S. Bastards). All of those cuts will appear on the album with the longest name in the catalogue “The Hierarchical Ecological Succession: Welcome to the Food Chain” recorded and mixed by Ryan Vincent at Apollo Audio Alt (Misery Index, Scour) and with artwork by Dusty Peterson (Cattle Decapitation, Six Feet Under, Lamb of God) and will drop on 5th March via Blood Blast Distribution the imprint label of Nuclear Blast.
TROGLODYTE vocalist Jeff Sisson elaborates: “When I was a kid, growing up in rural Missouri, there was a guy who claimed he hit a Bigfoot with his old truck one night. Said it was lying ‘dead as fried chicken’ in the road. He went around to the back of his pickup, looking for some rope, and was trying to figure out HOW to get this thing in the bed of the truck. While rifling through stuff, the truck took off. The beast got up and stole his truck. Now, no one believed him. But I always imagined WHAT IF he really did hit one…and where did the Bigfoot learn to drive?”
Sisson says he told this story to GWAR’s Brent Purgason one night, who said, “That’s without a doubt the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard…and you wrote a song about it? Count me in”
