Jungle rot is what the soldiers in Vietnam called it when your feet got infected because you didn’t keep your feet dry. The horrors that awaited between your toes if you stumble dacross this (haha!) were no surprise. Same can be said about these guys… Jungle Rot has been a band for fifteen years now, “What Horrors Await” is their sixth album and they haven’t changed a damn thing since they started.
Which is a good thing because death metal these days seems to be more about technicality and mathematical precision than it is about giving your neck muscles a good workout. If you like Cannibal Corpse or Six Feet Under, there’s no reason you should shy away from Jungle Rot. It’s mostly mid-tempo except for the occasional thrash excursion (“Straightjacket Life”) and all the songs come with plenty of groove.
Nothing spectacular, just solid old school death metal!
