Jungle Rot

At this year’s installment of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia, we had the opportunity to talk with Jungle Rot’s Dave Matrise. While Jungle Rot may be a name new to Live Metal, the band isn’t new at all. The Wisconsin “old-school” death metallers have been at it for over 20 years, and just released their eighth album, Order Shall Prevail (June 30, 2015, Victory Records). If you’re a fan of the early days of fast, violent death metal in the vein of the first Sepultura albums, Deicide or Immolation and others in this vein, check out Jungle Rot. Playing its first Mayhem Festival on the Victory Records Stage, Jungle Rot was one of the standouts of the day.

Unless you’re a metal fan living under a rock, you’ve probably hears about the recent controversy surrounding this year’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. Jeff Maki of Live chatted with Dave, who offered some candid remarks about Slayer’s Kerry King, and discussed this year’s Mayhem Festival lineup and more.
