The man behind this vulgar Old School Death Metal outfit from Liverpool, United Kingdom, is Joe Bradley. If you may ask yourself; “have I heard that name before” or have a Grace Jones – “I’ve seen that face before”-moment…the good man spent a couple of years in Cryptic Shift and did a thing or two on their highly acclaimed “Visitations from Enceladus” album, which was released in 2020 by Blood Harvest.
With Trench Foot Joe keeps this a solo project and plays Old School Death Metal, the brutal down-tuned and visceral kind and heavily inspired by 70s/80s horror and splatter films. Ultra-low growls, samples of the aforementioned films, chunky mid-tempo groove riffs along with up-tempo outbursts, Trench Foot doesn’t do something you hear for the first time, but aficionados of the style will enjoy this for sure.
