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.

Doom ep

This band gets a lot of criticism for its not so technical guitar playing and its hardcore beats (which loser hardcore kids hardcore dance to, and most people are too stuck on genre stereotypes nowadays to fully appreciate this music). The songs are good with good vocal work, the range of the bands musical talents are decent and drums are pretty good. By all means this band is a deathgrind band, but the elements previously listed help pull it all together. This album would be more for people who are newer to metal or not so picky about their metal, there are better bands out there, but this one shouldn't be over looked. They're barely out of high school!

yes.... now you can die

this is the best ep that you will ever hear.. buy it, no questions asked... ENTOMBMENT OF A MACHINE!!!!

A must have for every scene kid

The last 3 songs on the ep are good and the first two are alright minus the breakdowns and trendy pig "noises". If you truely like death metal this isnt what you are really looking for. Its a decent attempt though. So dye a streak in your long staightened hair and get ready to rock. Hey you can even do your dumb annoying slam dances to every breakdown. Get ready to windmill when you put this in...losers.
