The troglodyte rises from a bed of dirt and rock. He stands erect next to a smoldering fire and furrows the unibrow below his sloped forehead at the glowing horizon.
Driven by primitive biology, the neanderthal’s body desires to procreate and grill woolly mammoth steaks, but his heart yearns for something more. Early man grabs a handful of psilocybin mushrooms and begins to unveil the sacred geometry of his habitat. He quickly retrieves the nearest log and fashions it with a fishing string.
His hairy, muscular forearms are compelled to wail away on the makeshift instrument. The sound of death metal blasts out into the primeval swamp. Caveman riffs are born. UNGA BUNGA! He shouts in triumph. Other bearded men lay down their freshly clubbed women and brontosaurus burgers to congregate around the growing noise. SANGUISUGABOGG is born.
Hailing from Dayton, Ohio, SANGUISUGABOGG took 2019 by the loins with their four-song EP ‘Pornographic Seizures‘. With the violence of slam combined with early 90’s death metal, SANGUISUGABOGG really only have one gear, and to be honest that gear is pretty fuckin’ cool. They just chug along with beefy riffs and guttural vocals for 11 minutes of brutality.
02. Turkish Blood Orgy
04. Succulent Decedent
The album was rightfully a fan favorite of 2019 and with a full length on the way, we can only hope that the future sees Cameron Boggs (Guitar), Cody Davidson (Drums), Steph Barnes (Bass), and Devin Swank (Vocals) continue to break necks with their self described down-tuned drug death. Maggot Stomp Records has a bunch of nasty tunes so check those out, too.
SANGUISUGABOGG is currently on tour, so go hit up a show. This is more than a band, but rather a litmus test for the type of people you want to surround yourself with. Put this rager on full blast and watch as the less mighty begin to faint, vomit, and possibly even die. Pretty soon you will be surrounded by megalodons who are eating corned beef sandwiches and chili dogs. And that my friend, is right where you want to be.
