Pinnacle of Bedlam will feature 10 genre-defining-bone-crushing tracks and also marks the return of drummer Dave Culross, who played with the band previously on their Despise The Sun EP.
The new release is slated for February 2013 on Nuclear Blast Records. Visit www.facebook.com/suffocation for more information and all the latest news on the release. All hail the reigning kings of brutality!
JUNGLE ROT IS: Dave Matrise (Vocals/Guitar)
Jerry Sturino (Bass)
Eric House (Drums)
Joey Lohr (Guitar)
Having a style more similar to acts such as Slayer and Sodom, rather than the typical
Cannibal Corpse and Suffocation rip-offs that the underground extreme music scene
is so used to seeung, JUNGLE ROT have garnered a large and loyal following within
the last 9 years. The sound and attitude that JUNGLE ROT have exposed the public
to, is one of efficiency and execution. JUNGLE ROT have never tried to be the goriest
or most technical band in the extreme underground, but instead have focused on flowing
groves and infectious catchy songwriting.
In 1995, JUNGLE ROT released their first full-length demo "Skin the Living"
News of the demo's success and reviews describing JUNGLE ROTS' live performances
as explosive, led to a recording deal with Pulverized Records. in 1998, JUNGLE ROT
released their first full-length album "Slaughter the Weak". After enjoying more promising
sales from the record JUNGLE ROT was led down when Pulverized Records closed
its doors. At this time independent lable Pavement Records offered to re-release
"Slaughter the Weak" for the band.
Proving that they were one of the hardest working bands in the underground scene,
JUNGLE ROT survived numerous lineup changes, kept playing shows and wrote new
material. Some of this material was recorded for the EP "Darkness Foretold" released by
cult magazine/lable SOD. After accepting an offer made to them from Olympic Recordings,
they recorded "Dead and Buried" released in 2001
In 2004 comes the release of JUNGLE ROTS 4th album"Fueled by Hate" on Century Media records.
Probably the strongest effort yet this album should be no dissapointment to anyone. Staying with
the formula of memorable songs and catchy groves while still having the heaviness to live up to
exceed the current requirements for extreme music, JUNGLE ROT will continue its legacy of
uncompromising straightforward aggression
Rings of Saturn
RINGS OF SATURN is an internationally touring band based out of California where their founding member, Lucas Mann, resides. The band self-released their first full-length album entitled Embryonic Anomaly in late 2009. Four months later Unique Leader Records signed the band and Embryonic Anomaly was re-released internationally under the label on May 28th, 2010. Since then, Rings of Saturn has been hard at work touring nationwide throughout the United States and Canada promoting Embryonic Anomaly as well as their second upcoming album release entitled Dingir (din-jeer) which will be hitting stores Feb. 5th, 2013 on Unique Leader Records.
Formed in Cambridge, Ontario DISGUST came together in October of 2000.
Prior to becoming what is now known as 'Disgust,' the band was known as 'Uncensored' featuring (Brian Figueiredo - Vocals, Guitar/ Sean Giacomini - Guitar /Abe Scheidel - Bass, Vocals and Chris Giacomini - Drums) and had consisted of drop-tuned metal with inspiration from Led Zeppelin to Slayer to Deftones and Pantera.
After playing a few local shows this band of 15 year old's started to grow up and realize that their talent couldn't be sold short.
After searching for a sound that could match the drive of teenagers heading into adulthood with the influence of heavy metal, the band had called it a Hiatus.
In the early year of 2002 Brian Figueiredo and Abe Scheidel had written a variety of new material which had consisted of influence from band's like Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, Dying Fetus, Cephalic Carnage and tons of other great underground bands of Death, Black, Thrash, Hardcore or Grind metal scenes. Patching things up with a serious band meeting between the four members the band had returned as DISGUST.
In the summer of 2002, the band had performed and picked up a couple of shows but concentrated on maintaining a flow of new and heavier material and consistent jamming. Disgust officially launched in the summer of 2003 and pushed shows in their hometown of Cambridge as well as Toronto, Guelph, Kitchener and area supporting a demo titled “Hear the Bones Crack”.
In 2004 Disgust independently recorded their first full-length album titled “Years of Torment”. The album had featured early material and had demonstrated the potential this band had ahead of them.
Following this record, Disgust played as many shows as possible in their home and neighboring provinces of Ontario and Quebec. It was then in Montreal where Disgust collaborated with soon to be label mates “Inveigh”. The two bands had clicked right away. With Disgust and Inveigh both on the urge to put out new material, but lacked enough for a full-length.
Disgust then signed to Big Metal Records (based in Montreal) to do a split with Inveigh that was titled “Bleed the Gemini”. Following the release of the split, the two bands jammed in their vans and toured across Canada the four following weeks. With the tour being a minuscule success, it was a wake up call on how life on the road would take a toll on you.
This had set the path for Disgust to strive forth and only await new sacrifices to come. Unfortunately the band Inveigh had split after the tour, and Disgust had a new disc with a band that no longer existed. (Note: Remaining members of Inveigh that still perform now strive through the band Endast!!!)
In 2006 the band was then again in a situation of new material, but not enough for a full-length. Towards the end of the year Disgust but one more disc with Big Metal Records collaborating their original “Hear the Bones Crack” demo in 2003, their material from the split, and 3 of their heaviest tracks that were released at the time.
Once again Disgust hit the road and had a much more successful tour across Canada, as a fan base had built from the previous year.
The CD was limited to 1000 copies, and was gone within the year. At the end of 2007 Disgust then recorded 5 songs to be sent to labels for their next full length. Production was done independently and new material for the album was ready to go. Problems then started to rise internally in the band with focuses starting to change. It was in Spring of 2008 where Disgust and Abe Scheidel had parted ways, and previous material was then scrapped. It seemed like tough roads ahead, but nothing tougher than being 19 and spending four weeks in a smelly van playing to 20 people a night.
Since then, Disgust has toured across their home country of Canada an additional 2 times and were the only Canadian band to have played at the 1st annual California Death Metal Festival. During this short time Disgust was honored to have shared the stage with acts such as Suffocation, Cryptopsy, Dying Fetus, Decapitated, Misery Index, Hypocrisy, Lividity, Retch, Macabre and other sick bands that had already had an influence on their career.
In the spring of 2009 Disgust had finally re-written and collaborated enough material to put out another full-length album. A pre-production demo was then recorded independently by the band to be sent to labels in search for a new home support the band. As it stands Disgust has finished their latest album "Infinite Obliteration" and is set for an early fall release of 2011. After that, expect Disgust anywhere and everywhere to molest a town near you!!!
