Kill on Command
Released: 2011, Victory Records
Reviewer: Metal-Rules.com UK Team
Jungle Rot is one of the most ferocious metal bands of the last ten years. Their take on brutal deathcore is not to be taken for granted, blowing the minds of all those who listen to their brutal goodness. Now, Jungle Rot have got a whole new barrage of songs from the powerful Kill on Command to add to their repertoire, giving them total supremacy of the world of extremely metal with ten tracks of pure speed, distortion and balls! Find some cover, for Jungle Rot are back, and they aren’t here to take prisoners.
The best thing about Kill on Command is hands down the killer guitar lines that smash through your speakers like a Panzer Tank through a brick wall! Not only incorporating the classic Napalm Death sounding grindcore element. Jungle Rot also uses groovy hooks that sound similar to Pantera to further the main melody of the music. When you get charging, insanely heavy riffs like those in tracks like ‘Rise Up and Revolt’ and ‘Push Comes to Shove’, you basically shit your pants in five places at the pure ferocity of the awesome riffs that spawn from the minds of these grind legends.
Kill on Command is jammed full of mosh pit anthems that is capable of igniting the biggest and most bad ass wall of death you will ever see. The truth is, Kill on Command is basically a greatest hits of Jungle Rot. From start to finish you it feels like there is a massive flashing sign saying, “This is Jungle Rot, and this is what we fucking sound like”. There’s no bull shit, Jungle Rot play to their fucking strengths and Kill on Command is jammed full of tracks like ‘Blood Ties’ and ‘No Mercy (From the Merciless)’ which basically define Jungle Rot at their best.
For those who were hoping the track ‘I Predict a Riot’ would be a cover of the Kaisers Chiefs hit single, as good as that would be, it’s yet another brutal song that Jungle Rot have wrote. Damn, you may be saying to yourself, but if they had chosen to cover it, it would no doubt have been fucking awesome and one of the most memorable moments of 2011. Maybe on the next album you could cover sex bomb by Tom Jones. It’s this fun element that would put Jungle Rot in a different league and bring them the fans they truly deserve.
Apart from the disappointing let down with the apparent cover, Kill on Command is over 30 minutes of pure head banging goodness, that any true fan of metal can kick back to and have a good time moshing to the killer tunes on it!
