Jungle Rot is an American death metal band from Kenosha, Wisconsin, United States, formed in 1992. Jungle Rot plays an aggressive style of thrash influenced death metal and are known to integrate slow stomp melodies into their speed-thrash style. Most of the lyrical subjects deal with war, torture, murder, death, and corruption.

Jungle Rot was founded in 1992 as a side project by Jim Harte and Joe Thomas, members of the Wisconsin thrash metal act, Prisoner.Theband's name refers to Jungle rot, an infection of the feet, which people developed in the jungle when their military boots got wet andwereleft on. The band acquired Kenosha-based guitarist Dave Matrise (Num Skull, Nocturnal, Fatal Violence) in 1993 and recorded their firstdemoRip Off Your Face, a crude offering of childish fun. It wasn't until 1994 when Matrise took over that the band got serious and started totakeoff. The band refined their style and released their second demo Skin The Living in 1995, which is the year Matrise acknowledges the band truly officially began.

After their first two demos, the band was signed to the American independent label Pure Death Records, owned at the time by Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed, where they released their first album, a repackaging of their second demo Skin the Living, in 1996. In late 1997, theirsecondalbum, Slaughter the Weak was released on independent label Pulverizer Records.

The EP Darkness Foretold was released in 1998 by the small label S.O.D. Records, which was spearheaded by the creator of theundergroundmusic magazine Sounds of Death, and featured covers of Slayer's "Fight Til Death" and Carnivore's "Jesus Hitler". The initialpressing of Darkness Foretold came with a limited edition Jungle Rot Comic Book. The next two full-length studio albums, 2001's Dead AndBuried and2004's Fueled By Hate were released by Olympic Recordings in partnership with Century Media Records.

It wasn't until 2005 that the current core of Jungle Rot came together when Matrise enlisted the talents of Chicago native JamesGenenz(Fleshgrind, Avernus, Dead For Days, Reign Inferno, God Dementia) on bass guitar and Geoff Bub (Destiss, Putrid Dissentary) onguitar. Withsongwriting duties now shared between the three members, and the bulk of the lyrics being forthwith written by Genenz, Matrisewas nowable to take his band to the next level.

Subsequent touring ensued with bands like Deicide, Goatwhore, Cattle Decapitation, Krisiun, The Black Dahlia Murder, 25 Ta Life, HateEternal,Incantation, and Vital Remains. In mid-2006, the band released the album Warzone on Crash Music. This recording marked the firstalbum tofeature the now current Jungle Rot core of Matrise, Genenz, and Bub. In 2008, they headlined a European tour with support fromWarmaster,Downswitch, and Walking Corpse.

The band signed with Napalm Records in January 2009 and released What Horrors Await in June 2009. A European tour with Six FeetUnderfollowed shortly thereafter along with a headlining run across the United States. In April 2011, the band signed with Victory Recordsandreleased Kill on Command on June 21, 2011.[3] On March 19, 2013, Jungle Rot released their eighth album through Victory Records,titledTerror Regime. The band hit the road to support the album with metal luminaries such as Suffocation, Obituary, Broken Hope, DecrepitBirth,and more.

On April 14, 2015 it was announced that Jungle Rot would be playing the entirety of the 2015 Rockstar Energy Drink MayhemFestival,performing on the Victory Records stage.

In early 2015 the band announced via their social media that they were working on their ninth studio album, Order Shall Prevail, tobereleased later in the year on Victory Records. Pre-orders for the album were announced on May 26, along with the album's tracklisting,release date of June 30, and a stream for the single "Paralyzed Prey." On May 27, 2015 it was revealed that Max Cavalera(Sepultura,Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy) would be lending his vocals on the track "Fight Where You Stand". On June 29 the official musicvideo for thesingle "Paralyzed Prey" premiered on Vevo.
