If you ever wondered whether or not Jungle Rot was a real thing or just a band name, I have an answer for you; it’s both. Jungle Rot is typically known as Tropical Ulcer which erodes muscles and tendons (sometimes bone) leaving open revolting wounds; typically in hot/humid jungle areas. Go figure! What does this have to do with the band? They are fucking Death Metal; it’s supposed to be sickening, unpleasant, and nasty! Jungle Rot is quite a fitting name. Formed in 1994, they have released seven albums with one in the oven for 2013. It’s a wonder I never checked them out; however, now that they are signed to Victory Records their first album, Skin the Living, has been reissued. There’s no better place to start listening to a band than the very beginning. Their 2013 release will be the second release with Victory Records.
