Jungle Rot Dispatch New Video And Giveaway Goodies

We have a long history with Dying Fetus going as far back as the demo days, and our former drummer Jesse plays for Black Crown Initiate, so this will be one big, fun road reunion!”

Jungle rot 1

JUNGLE ROT bring you their controversial new video for ‘Doomsday,’ exclusively at Noisey/Vice. Additionally, the death metal servicemen are presenting your chance to win an Order Shall Prevailpackage at Lambgoat. The exclusive package includes a rare vinyl test pressing, camouflage hoodie, autographed CD, and two autographed posters.

“To me, the video is essentially about paranoia,” states JUNGLE ROT bassist James Genenz. “The protagonist is more than likely a paranoid conspiracy theorist, who probably isn’t all that wrong with his theories, but is driven mad because of them. The live shots of us playing under targets are like his delusions, envisioning an attack on a small populace of citizens and we are his weapon. Eventually, he cannot handle the prophetic visions and blinds himself to it.”

With the recent announcement of the Metal Alliance Tour, you can catch JUNGLE ROT in a city near you. “We’re definitely looking forward to getting back on the road!” continues Genenz. “It’s been a few months since we’ve been out and we are excited to perform for our fans again alongside our tour mates. We have a long history with Dying Fetus going as far back as the demo days, and our former drummer Jesse plays for Black Crown Initiate, so this will be one big, fun road reunion!”

Flotsam and Jetsam sign with AFM Records / new album out in May!

We’re honored that Flotsam and Jetsam have decided to join our roster. Of course we’ve followed their career for many years and always valued the band’s qualities. This new, self-titled album is a blast!

Flotsam 1

U.S. thrash metal legends Flotsam and Jetsam have inked a worldwide deal with AFM Records. The band’s new album, simply titled “Flotsam and Jetsam” will be released on May 20th.
We’re honored that Flotsam and Jetsam have decided to join our roster. Of course we’ve followed their career for many years and always valued the band’s qualities. This new, self-titled album is a blast! We’ve been convinced right from the very first demos sent. It was obvious to us why the album is titled as it is: „Flotsam and Jetsam“ holds the essence of what defines the band – this album is a statement, something to be proud of. And we are proud to start working with the band with such a special release.
The band states:
“Flotsam and Jetsam really appreciated the fact that AFM laid out a legitimate, business plan for us when they made their offer to sign us. We believe they are as committed to us as a band, as we are to providing them with quality metal to get behind and promote. Along with signing to a new label, all the forward movement for the band in the last two years has also allowed us to partner with new team members; like Chris Collier of CMC21 Productions, who just completed the mixing and mastering of the album and Andy Pilkington of Very Metal Art out of the UK, for the album cover and stage production art, who are both doing a phenomenal job for us. We’re looking forward to playing the music on this album live, which hasn’t been a luxury for the band on past releases, as well as debuting our new stage look”

Flotsam and Jetsam is:

Eric “AK” Knutson – vocals
Steve Conley – guitars
Michael Gilbert – guitars
Michael Spencer – bass
Jason Bittner – drums

All Hail The Yeti Unleashes “Before The Flames” Music Video

Screams From A Black Wilderness is produced by Matt Hyde, known for his prior work with renowned groups such as Deftones, Slayer, and Soulfly, and features a guest vocal appearance from Brock Lindow of 36 Crazyfists.

all hail the yeti
It was recently announced that southern-fried hardcore metal hybrid ALL HAIL THE YETI will release their full-length concept album, entitled Screams From A Black Wilderness, on April 8, 2016 via Minus Head Records. The album concept, based on classic campfire-circle horror stories, presents a different story with each track. Pre-orders for Screams From A Black Wilderness are available now via Bandcamp, Amazon, or iTunes (with instant grat track).
Alongside the announcement, ALL HAIL THE YETI released a music video for the track “After The Great Fire”, cut from their previous self-titled album. Screams From A Black Wilderness features the prequel to that concept track, entitled “Before The Flames”.
Today, Alternative Press is hosting the world premiere of the “Before The Flames” video.
Both videos are directed by Brian Cox of Flarelight Films and depict an orphanage housing children being abused by possessed caretaker nuns. When the nuns try to hide the abuse, their plan backfires tragically and everyone meets their demise. “Before The Flames” conceptualizes how the evil corruption came to be, before the tragic flames were set.
“This portion of the story is told from one child’s point of view – the little girl writing the letter to her parents begging them to come save her,” states vocalist Connor Garritty. “The idea for the story was something I came up with and immediately wanted to convey visually in addition to musically. The director Brian and I worked pretty closely together on the concept and treatment. From the initial idea I knew that I wanted it to be something that would make people feel uncomfortable but not be too gory. It’s more of a “suggested” horror, to think of what these nuns are doing to these little children.”
