Death Metal legends JUNGLE ROT have announced their signing to Chicago, IL based Victory Records.
The Kenosha, WI based quartet JUNGLE ROT have garnered a great and faithful following in the last 17 years due in large part to having a style more similar to the Big 4 heavyweights, rather than the typical Cannibal Corpse and Suffocation imitations that the underground extreme music scene is so oversaturated with. The style and approach JUNGLE ROT expose the public to is one of efficiency and execution that has been perfected over the years. Touring with such notable acts as Hatebreed, Deicide, Cattle Decapitation, Goatwhore, Vader, and many others has solidified their place in metal history.
“We are all very happy to be a part of the Victory family. Kill On Command is our 8th album, and it’s by far our heaviest and most brutal to date. Our new drummer, Jesse Beahler really took this new CD to the next level of heaviness. As always, there were ups and downs when making the record, but we do what we do best: keep fighting through all the bullshit that is dished out while being in a band, and in the end we came out with a killer new CD and a killer new label,” said guitarist and vocalist Dave Matrise.
“We need bands like JUNGLE ROT to keep reminding us that groove-based bludgeon is as important in death metal as technical savagery”- Blabbermouth
“One of the best examples of pure, crunchy mid-pace heavy-duty quality I’ve heard this year. Sheer badassery without the excesses” – Metal Review
JUNGLE ROT’s Victory Records debut, Kill On Command, will be released June 21, 2011. Pre-orders for the album are now available at the Victory Records webstore.
