JUNGLE ROT touring drummer Spenser Syphers is now a permanent member of the band.
Frontman Dave Matrise comments: “Spenser has had our back the last 3 years, and having him as a permanent member feels right as we get ready to go into a new decade. He is a monster behind the kit and to have him in this brotherhood will make Jungle Rot more powerful than ever. He was with us for Send Forth Oblivion Part 1, and we cannot wait to return overseas with him crushing once again.”
Syphers had this to say: “Playing for Jungle Rot has brought me to the next level of performance as a musician. It has shown me what it takes to be a part of something so professional yet brutally heavy. As a permanent member of Jungle Rot I will do everything I can to make this band thrive! Stage energy will be high as always, performance will be in the pocket, while staying groovy and heavy as hell!”
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.
