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.]

Holy Crap This is not what I expected

There doom Ep, was good, but this cd is so much better. They stop heading into the Hardcore/Metalcore way, and went towards Tech-Death, and I must say I was amazed. The blasting double bass, with tight fast guitar riffs, and the on slaught of duel vocals is amazing. They got more ferious, and better at constructing songs by not whoreing the breakdowns and slowing down the pace. This album is in my running for best of 2007. Songs to check out are "Reduced to Mere Filth", "Embedded" and "The Devine Falsehood". 5/5 stars. Highly Recomemded for Deathcore, Death Metal, and anyone open-minded Metal fans.


for you kids that say they are dissapointed about genesis. you all are not true Job fans, this is some of the heaviest, gnarliest stuff ive ever heard in my life. if you really listened to metal you wouldnt say every song sounds the same. never ever right a review on a metal record ever again, you have no idea what youre talking about. Genesis is awesomely brutal.


What a dissapointment i had when i first listenend to Genesis. JFAC is heading a total different way, if you enjoyed DOOM breakdowns, guitar solos and the awesome pig squeals. This is not your CD, this is more like straight boring Deathcore if you want to call it that. The drummer still good but the rest is boring... Very big dissapointment. Dont waste your money!
