Album Review

American Idol season six winner Jordin Sparks isn't the only new artist from the comfy suburban enclave of Glendale, AZ: death metal outfit Job for a Cowboy's debut album Genesis comes from the other side of the musical tracks as Sparks' neatly manicured pop. But if there was ever a TV show called "Death Metal Idol," Job for a Cowboy would be one of the bands that got cut about halfway through the season: Genesis has all the death metal moves down cold but lacks the spark of originality or personality that would make it more than a concise overview of circa 2007 deatchcore clichés. To be fair, singer Jonny Davy has a somewhat better than average death-growl that only occasionally falls into Cookie Monsterism, and drummer Jon Rice shows off a decent sense of dynamics that manages to differentiate the songs even when they're all blurring past at hyper-speed, but the ten songs here remain resolutely average nonetheless. [The disc was also released with a bonus track.]

Customer Reviews

FAR OUT!!

I f*#@en love this band, it took three months for their album "DOOM" to come from the States to my hands, I've only known one other person who had heard of this band, let alone anyone besides me own an album of Job For A Cowboy, and just ordered about a month ago "Genesis" and "Ruination". Now another EP is coming out. If You are into Deathcore/Metalcore stuff buy Job For A Cowboy or even try and find the CD's, they're worth waiting for, even if it takes months.
