Tech-Metal FROGG Streaming Debut EP “A Reptilian Dystopia”
Fresh out of Stamford, Connecticut, USA, comes FROGG, a creative and modern blend of metal that is both dark and melodic. Set to release their debut EP “A Reptilian Dystopia” on January 17, 2020, the band has teamed up with GhostCult Mag for its exclusive full stream HERE.
FROGG has been in the works for years in the mind of Sky Moon Clark and over the years he has been inoculating a stash of riffs, licks, and raw emotion, which will now be poured out into the world. As the band puts it, “it’s a fiery punch to the gut”.
“Our EP is kind of our raw sound put on a plate without much refinement, but it’s still the basic punch and flavor FROGG has to offer. Just think of the EP as our base, while our in-the-works Album I (expected 2021/2022) will be a more fleshed-out form of FROGG with an emphasized focus on the overall songs start to finish.”
Metal fans looking for something new and creative, especially fans of Obscura, Arsis and Born of Osiris will be able to appreciate FROGG and “A Reptilian Dystopia”.
EP Pre-order here.
FROGG is a modern technical metal band located in Stamford, USA with influences stemming from Obscura, Arsis, and Born of Osiris.
The concept behind FROGG is simple: create modern heavy music while striving to show off some originality in an often, over-processed genre. FROGG’s main ambition is to hit the live circuit in NYC and its surroundings with a perfected performance and bolstered line-up.
FROGG started as your typical high school band with founder Sky Moon Clark and co-founder at the time, Ryan Panny blasting off primarily Children of Bodom covers for fun. FROGG was later revitalized by Clark, during his time at Berklee College of Music.
Through his time at Berklee, Clark experimented with different projects while continuing to funnel different guitar-centric song ideas and riffs into the archives that would later come to fruition with the next reincarnation of FROGG.
In 2019, the overstocked stash of riffs, licks, and raw emotion was ready to be poured out into the world what was a one-man project bloomed with the addition of Siebe Sol Sijpkens (bass); Anthony Barrone (drums) and Liam Zintz-Kunkel (rhythm guitars) to record the first EP.
With performance in mind, FROGG delivers an authentic live sound with no backup tracks, just raw, practiced musicianship. The dark and melodic band promises something hot, original and intense and the debut album “A Reptilian Dystopia” is slated for release in 2020.

“FROGG have succeeded where others in the tech-metal cesspool have failed this year. They have produced a fresh & enjoyable 5-course meal of original organic riffs, unsaturated with lameness & paired impeccably with a robust production worthy of all bedroom audio nerdz. A Reptilian Dystopia should be a huge part of everyone’s 2020 playlist.” – TrveNorth Reviews
“My favorite part is definitely the ability to sound different in a genre that is starting to get a little stale. Its a heavy blend of Tech while adding some extra melody. Most tech death bands literally go for face melting riffs. Which is also cool. But after a while that gets kind of boring. So for a band like Frogg to put out an EP like this, they could help lead the next generation of tech death kids.” 10/10 – Between The Lines Media
“The quality on show here is amazing for a first release and has left us salivating at the prospect of their debut album [9/10]” – Metal Noise
“Bursting into life with a colossus bang, it’s a technical monstrosity that greets listeners with Ancient Storm. It’s wild, it’s nasty but it’s built on a foundation of sharp riffs and ferocious groove.” – Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life
“This EP is interesting, because it’s extremely heavy, but it also has a great grasp on melody. Think like… Inanimate Existence + Born Of Osiris + Chon? It’s extremely well played – technical and fast as all hell – while remaining palatable and not overbearing. It’s an interesting balance they have going, and it’s definitely impressive for a debut, especially the 7 minute beast of a track that is DNA.” – Zax Record Reviews
“A Reptilian Dystopia is a succession of rock-hard riffs, complex melodies, extremes and power. The Ep is raw and brutal and according to Sky Moon Clark offers the basis for an album that will be released at the end of 2021. An album with an even more balanced track list. For the time being it is now fifteen minutes of solid extreme metal that will wake you up.” – Rockportaal
