Album Review

After an initial demo, Job for a Cowboy's first proper release catapulted the Arizona band to unimaginable heights. It's likely no other metal band has gone as viral as quickly. Job for a Cowboy did so through technology — MySpace, where the band amassed millions of profile views, and YouTube, where a fan cleverly mashed up "Knee Deep" with clips from SpongeBob SquarePants. Whether the band deserved such attention is debatable. Doom is competent, but trades in sounds, not songs, and is ultimately forgettable. A throwaway cinematic intro leads to a barrage of blastbeats, serviceable death metal riffs, and hardcore punk breakdowns — an amalgamation now commonly called "deathcore." Jonny Davy's vocals alternate between grating mid-range yells and absurdly low growls; the latter are often dubbed "pig squeals," or, onomatopoeically, "brees." Almost overnight, hordes of MySpace copycats sprang up, even lifting the band's logo font. This is where it all started — or ended, depending on your perspective.

Metal fans

If you are a "true" metal fan ( the term is used so loosely as of late) this is an album for you. If you like ruthless beatings with double kicks that are so in time and ruthless it could be equated to twenty vetically challenged idividuals kicking you in the chest for 4 minutes. Bass that threatens to end your life through suffocation . Vocals that go from skreeks that would petify a banshee, to the deepest growls that inflicts fear deep into the souls of lions. on top of all of this a rythm that is just as easy to head bang to as it is go wild and break bones in the pit. If you claim to be "metal" and this just isn't your groove. I heard new kids on the block are doing a reunion tour. Get Metal or Grow up and stop posing,,, choice is up you friend i hear Donnie Wahlburg is still lookin fresh.
