JUNGLE ROT Releases 'A Burning Cinder' Video

Midwest death metal titans JUNGLE ROT have released the official music video for the song "A Burning Cinder". The track is taken from the band's self-titled album, which was released in July via Victory Records.

JUNGLE ROT vocalist/guitarist Dave Matrise states: "I call this a 'Frankenstein' creation; it has all the elements needed for a good metal song — groove, thrash, speed and killer lyrics. It is one of my favorites in our catalog and I wanted to expand about the government trying to control, manipulate and force feed citizens into what we should believe in or not. It goes over really well live and we can't wait to continue playing it on the next tour."

JUNGLE ROT recently announced the "Send Forth Oblivion Tour Part 1", its first European tour in five years. Matrise says: "I'm very excited to get back to Europe and play our style of old-school metal to all the headbangers around. We will also come back in the summer for the 'Send Forth Oblivion Tour Part 2' with more dates, mostly on the festival circuit. 2019 is going to be a hell of a year. Let's get crushing!"

In January 2018, JUNGLE ROT entered Belle City Sound with engineer Chris Djuricic behind the board. Mixing and mastering was done by the legendary Dan Swanö (DARK FUNERAL, MARDUK).

"Jungle Rot" blasts off with "Send Forth Oblivion", an audible equivalent to stainless steel medical devices in your eardrum. The album closes with a crushing cover of KREATOR's 1987 classic "Terrible Certainty".

"I love this song and it's one I've always wanted to cover. I remember seeing them for the first time, saying to myself I want to start a band," Matrise confesses.

As the hype surrounding JUNGLE ROT points that this is their most dynamic and diverse release to date, Matrise states the band has never measured their success by tailgating other acts.

"We are JUNGLE ROT," he says. "This is JUNGLE ROT. Bands may want to call it a day, hang up their axes and go to bed, that is their call, but that is of no consequence to us or our plotted course. By the early 1990s, the death metal revolution was ready to overthrow the stagnant metal scene, and 20-plus years later, our job has not changed.”

The cover art for "Jungle Rot" was again helmed by the masterful and brutal mind of artist Gyula Havancsak.
