Jungle Rot – Doomsday: A Video Breakdown

Taco Doomsday.

As the saying goes, controversy creates cash. If you tell people something is bad, there’s a segment of the population that will go out and do it. Butt-chugging is a good example. In today’s crowded music market, a controversy or publicity stunt can help a band garner some attention for their new album. That’s not to say actively courting trouble to make money is a good business plan, but it does bring eyes and ears to products. All of this doesn’t matter though when a band makes a feeble attempt at an obviously manufactured publicity stunt.

Upon A Burning Body is a prime example of a band (or management) coming up with a stupid idea to try to get people talking. The band claimed that singer Danny Leal had been kidnapped, causing many websites to report it as fact. It was complete bullshit and probably did more harm than good. Did a little stunt and the controversy help them? Doubtful.

Though not as earnest as UABB’s stupid stunt, Jungle Rot recently tried to pass off the video for their song “Doomsday” as having been “flagged by the government for inciting ‘dissension’.” Oh, the “government?” Not, say, Homeland Security or the CIA? Why not the Girl Scouts of America or The North American Man-Dragon Love Association? Is President Obama sitting in the Oval Office, surrounded by his Joint Chiefs of Staff, advisers, and the presidential candidates from both parties demanding the immediate stoppage of all death metal videos from bands that share a record label with bands like Kissing Candice, Snow White’s Poison Bite, and Neurotic November? Let’s take a look at the music video that was so mind-fuckingly controversial that the United States government just had to stop it from being released onto an unsuspecting public.

0:02: A color change to some clouds? Clearly these terrorists in Jungle Rot must be stopped!
0:07: Penis helmet.
0:12: Oh, yeah. His face definitely matches that sound.
0:25: A fish-eye lens? This video is using the same techniques that a shady landlord uses to make a shitbox apartment look spacious.
0:33: Over 300 channels and nothing but snow.
0:36: Alex Jones: The Later Years.
0:41: Another few hours under those lights and he’ll officially be a Burger King french fry.
0:47: That room definitely smells of canned beans and pig slop.
0:55: That gas mask is required for the official Jungle Rot Hot Box.
0:58: “Alright, boys! Drop and squat!”
1:03: Nice of Victory to spring for Google Earth.
1:09: Live footage? Really?
1:16: This must be from one of the early Rockstar Mayhem fests before it all went to shit.
1:22: Maybe we’ll get a cameo from fellow Mayhem Fest alum Sister Sin.
1:30: Judging by that guy’s baton, it looks like the FBI won’t be the only ones doing the probing.
1:34: Look out! The government is in your light bulbs!
1:40: Some serious eighthead going on.
1:43: “Gah! Brain freeze!”
1:50: Some government regulations may help Jungle Rot out with their shaky camera problem.
1:56: Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
2:00: I really want to play Silent Scope right now.
2:06: Or chuck some maple syrup-filled balloons at them.
2:13: So we’re at a different Jungle Rot show? Were they only allowed to film 20 seconds at Mayhem Fest?
2:20: Jungle Rot can’t melt steel beams.
2:25: Jungle Rot was the second gunman on the grassy knoll.
2:27: Jungle Rot knows all eleven herbs and spices in KFC’s recipe.
2:33: Jungle Rot faked the moon landing.
2:39: Jungle Rot knows where Jimmy Hoffa is buried.
2:45: Aww, you spilled his Prepper Jam. That took hours to jar!
2:54: Yeah, I could see why the government funneled all their resources into preventing this explosive bit of death metal.
3:00: “These chuggity chugs and weedily deedilies will not stand!” – “President” ObummeriKKKa.
3:05: It was nice of Phil Labonte to allow Jungle Rot to shoot in his house.
3:10: Way less feces smeared on the walls of his house than I expected.
3:13: That was really worth stopping the song.
3:24: Jungle Rot is really a grown-up Jonbenet Ramsey.
3:29: Jungle Rot crash-landed in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.
3:35: An accurate representation of the audience watching this video.
3:40: He’s going to be all out of delicious Prepper Jam when the Ruskies drop the Big One on us.
3:44: His toast is going to be all dry, and he’ll have no reason to go on.
3:48: And no more chocolate sauce to mix with his milk.
3:43: Here’s a better song called “Doomsday.”
3:57: Wow. Thankfully, Jungle Rot was able to get the government to free this life-altering video from their iron grip.

Jungle Rot’s album Order Shall Prevail is available now via Victory Records.

    “flagged by the government for inciting ‘dissension’.”

    Look out! We got a band full of Alex Jones here.

  • I like how they promoted this video as FLAGGED BY THE BROBAMA GOVERMENT.

    Great round, 365. You’re the best zombie ever.

  • EsusMoose

    Can’t watch but I had to choke a laugh from the “Jungle rot knows all eleven herbs and spice” line.

  • This was so controversial with the way they had guitars, amps, drums and stuff in the video. Never seen anything like it before in my life.

    • COAL ROLL

      I want to see flaming effigies of presidential candidates

      • Yeah, that’ll get the government to red flag these guys for sure!

  • JWEG

    I couldn’t remember when Jungle Rot went from Napalm Records (bad) to Victory (worse); so I had to look it up again.

    I guess it shows how little investment I have in (this new wave of) OSDM.

    • JWEG

      Related: I just noticed the album came out in the middle of last year and this video was only just uploaded last week.

      If this were a pop album they’d have made like 6 videos by now and spoiled at least half the album that way. Tell me at least this is the second or third one…

    • Magical Adventures Of A Booger

      I’m amazed anyone does business with Victory nowadays, given their track record. 2 minutes into a Google search about the lawsuits against them and the antics of their owner (including his online rants) pulls up quite a bit of results, and their rep back in Chicago is far from stellar. At least Napalm comes off as professional. Shitty nowadays as far as their signings (WTF, they signed Otep?!?!?), but professional.

  • Stockhausen

    “Who the wtf is Jungle Rot.”
    -The government, and also everyone.

    • Salvador Dalí Lama

      Clearly a PSYOP campaign to keep their message of “dissent” away from the masses.

    • Magical Adventures Of A Booger

      They’ve got a pretty nice size following in Chicago, and has for a while. Outside of there, no idea.

      • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

        I dig’m. Im in Joisey so they now have a Joisey following too. BUT this was really BUSH LEAGUE!

  • DVRKBEVRD

    • Waynecro

      Dude, totally. I dig this band.

    • It was the “flagged by the gumbermint” bit that earned them a spot.

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      Still fucking terrible.

      • DVRKBEVRD

        my copy of The Work Which Transforms God came in today, along with my copy of Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk.

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          Good boy.

      • more beer

        Generic is the word you are looking for. But they actually do it well.

        • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

          Agreed. AC/DC Death metal.

    • CONAN Ayatollah of Jack & Cola

          • EsusMoose

            I attempt to use humor, and I usually fail, but on the off chance it works I don’t know what to say.

          • man I dunno, our chat about deflection last week makes me crack up still!!

          • EsusMoose

            Jungle Rot knows how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop.

          • Magical Adventures Of A Booger
      • Magical Adventures Of A Booger

        And they keep Jimmy Hoffa’s gelatinous remains hidden in their bass drum.

      • DVRKBEVRD

        im having the opposite problem. im now expected to do things because its light out. its also fucking with my dinner scheduling.

        • EsusMoose

          That sucks, I don’t have a schedule for when I eat so never really crossed my mind the change would mess with that. Reminds me I’m starving

          • DVRKBEVRD

            also, my cats think its time to eat.

            GODDAMNIT

          • EsusMoose

            Cats don’t care about time, they just want food.

          • I like Into Cold Darkness. That’s my go to for Vital

          • DVRKBEVRD

            theyre right up there with Nile (i could pee on them from here) for DM from that era. Decrapitated, too

          • Magical Adventures Of A Booger

            I got that on promo ages ago, and quickly forgot about it. It’s incredibly generic at best.

            Gahhhhhhh! I disapprove of the insanely long head.

          • Magical Adventures Of A Booger

            She looks like she’s about to morph into Teen Wolf.

          • more beer

            It looks like someone forced her head into a can of Steel Reserve and left it there until it permanently stayed that shape.

        • Dudes a huge asshole. My guitarist played in a band with him and toured with him. So many horror stories.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Would love to hear some…..

          • The worst one was, an hour or so before Taylor (My Guitarist) was about to go on stage to perform, Weiner decided it would be a great idea/prank to put shrooms on Taylor’s pizza while he wasn’t looking as a joke. I guess Taylor was so fucked up on stage after that he could hardly play the songs. Mostly Weiner was just a big head case with a huge ego that drank way too much.

            EDIT: And he still is that way.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Damn! Ridiculous!

          • Magical Adventures Of A Booger

            Yikes!

          • PostBlackenedWhaleGaze

            I would crap my pants if the trip kicked in while on stage. Or any public place full of people, unbeknownst to me

    • CT-12

      Brian fucking Weiner, amirite?

    • Magical Adventures Of A Booger

      Awwwwwwwwwwww, I just wanna pinch his cheeks and go “aren’t you just a little wittle rebel?”. And promptly slap the living shit out of him.

  • Magical Adventures Of A Booger

    Yeep, just as I told the singer to swing on over to The Toilet a few days ago (he’s been on my FB friends list for a little while)!
