New Jungle Rot Video Interview And Live In San Francisco Streaming Video

154

Todd Owens of Capital Chaos TV chats with Dave Matrise & Geoff Bub of Jungle Rot 10/22/14 @ DNA Lounge – San Francisco, California also on the line up were Suffocation, Pyrexia & Internal Bleeding

Shots’ firing overhead, out of breath, thankful to be alive, an exhausted, courageous soldier takes cover in a nearby trench. Overcome with tragedy, the cadet looks down to carefully remove his worn down combat boots to discover his feet numb and blue, knocking him back with an overwhelming smell of decay and gangrene. This phenomenon is known as “jungle rot”. With a little imagination, visualize this horrifyingly grotesque predicament as it would be in heavy metal form – teeming with despair, brutality, darkness and volatility. The sinister picture you have just painted comes to life in four-piece death metal act JUNGLE ROT, who has been triumphantly destroying the metal scene since 1994.

METALLICA’s KIRK HAMMETT To Welcome MESHUGGAH, AGNOSTIC FRONT To Second Annual FEAR FESTEVIL

162

Kirk Von Hammett loves to keep things interesting, and so it is that the next Kirk Von Hammett Fear FestEvil event will be a Murder Mystery Dinner/ VIP Party at the legendary Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, CA on FRIDAY APRIL 10th, followed by another spectacular two-night Fear FestEvil musical punch at RockBar Theater on SATURDAY APRIL 11th and SUNDAY APRIL 12th.

On the 10th, guests attending the Fear FestEvil VIP Party will enjoy a classic night of ‘whodunnit’ mystery madness, dining alongside Kirk Hammett, touring the infamously eerie and atmospheric mansion, and trying to figure out who killed who! Guests can expect twists, turns and clues from some very special ‘horror royalty’ as they try to crack the mystery open.

On Saturday April 11th and Sunday April 12th, Fear FestEvil friends heading to the RockBar Theater can expect to see some of the finest pieces in any modern horror collection as Kirk Von Hammett unveils more of The Crypt publicly, before throwing down some heavy music courtesy of Meshuggah, High On Fire, Orchid, Blues Pills, Agnostic Front, and Asada Messiah. SiriusXM Radio’s Liquid Metal host Jose Mangin will preside over proceedings.

“It has always been my intention that Fear FestEvil events carry both the weird and the loud,” says Kirk Hammett, “and what better way to achieve another extension of what we want to do than eat dinner in a haunted house while solving criminal acts before a weekend of super kick-­ass music?!”
