Earlier this week we paid homage to one of the all-time great (but often underrated) American death metal bands, Jungle Rot. If that feature wasn't enough to convince you of the band's value and importance, their badass new music video for Send Forth Oblivion will surely do the trick.

A sequel to The Unstoppable from the 2009 album What Horrors Await, the band's latest cinematic work of art – directed by Dustin Smith – transports us to the midst of an intense battle, with the Wisconsin trio exhausted, lacking supplies, and one man down. While they are trapped and fighting for survival in an isolated bunker, we learn of their brainwashing by those in power.

"The experiments they did prevented them from eliminating us," explains guitarist Geoff Bub. "Operation Oblivion could be their own demise!"

Meanwhile, lyrically, the song "expresses what these surviving soldiers are thinking as they ponder what's become of humanity," vocalist and guitarist Dave Matrise adds. "Greed and [consolidation of] power has brought the downfall of society. Is there any hope?"

It sure doesn't sound like it. But you can watch the video and find out for yourself!

Best of all, the excitement doesn't end there! We're pleased to offer a full stream of Jungle Rot's new self-titled album in advance of its release tomorrow (July 20) on Victory Records.
