MemeBigfoot> The Thing, The Myth, The Legend.

Wikipedia defines it as this:

Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is the name given to a cryptid ape- or hominid-like creature that some people believe inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid. The term sasquatch is an anglicized derivative of the Halkomelem word sásq’ets.[2][3]

If you are a horror movie fan, and lets face it, if your’re reading this, you probably are, Bigfoot and his cousins Yeti, Sasquatch, Skunk Ape, and others, are horrible abominations of nature intent on shredding our skin and tissues to feed their fanged mouths. They fill folklore across the globe, and fuel reality tv shows in the midnight hours. We have a fascination with the backwoods man-ape, and he either compels us or instills fear. misunderstood or monster, one thing is for certain: he is metal as fuck.

Troglodyte 2

A VERY small contingent of bands has deemed him worthy of his niche in metal, flying in the group of American Death Metal. Several bands have done Bigfoot or his brethren in just songs, but no band has given themselves to BECOME a ‘foot band, until 2011, when Troglodyte came lumbering out of the crusted, fetid woods of Heavy metal. This band has donned the likeness of the Foot, and have given their utterances to espousing the monstrosity side of the furry guy.

With song titles liek Skunk Ape Rape, Sasquatch Ocean, Don’t Go in the Woods, and Caught (on Super 8), you know you’re not running into the most deeply philosophical of ideas, but by god if they don’t paint a brutal masterpiece. The band is adept at playing their heavy, pounding death metal style, with grinding guitars, drums like pounding footsteps coming from behind you, and a voice thats had gravel shoved into its face after being drug through the forest. The songs are epic, and could inspire some truly great videos, titles alone being considered. The imagery is violent, gory, and explicit, over the two albums they have put out so far, “Welcome to Boggy Creek” and “Don’t Go Into The Woods“. The first album, Welcome… deals with american BF for the most part, and Don’t… expands the territory with more up to date mythologies and cousins being explored, such as with the tune “Minnesota Iceman Cometh“.
