Official press release: Glendale, AZ extreme metal unit Job For A Cowboy has completed work on their highly anticipated full-length debut, entitled Genesis. The fast-rising band, known for their punishing songs, explosive live performances and forward thinking vision, will release Genesis on May 15 via Metal Blade Records. Job For A Cowboy, who toured the world in 2006 in support of their wildly-popular, self-financed "Doom" EP, recorded Genesis at Blue Light Audio Media in Phoenix, AZ with producer Cory Spotts. The album was mixed by the Grammy winning Andy Sneap (Opeth, Entombed). Anticipation for Genesis is such that the band has already been named one of "Metal's Most Important Troops for 2007" by Metal Hammer, one of Total Guitar's "Hottest Guitar Bands of 2007", one of Alternative Press' 2007 "Bands You Need to Know" and one of Revolver's "Breakthrough Bands that will be Kicking Your Ass this Year". On the topic of the new album, Job For A Cowboy guitarist Ravi Bhadriraju comments, "Genesis is a record that we as a band needed to fulfill. We wrote an album that we wanted to play live well into the distant future. If there is one word to describe our new record, it is 'aggressive.' We want this album to have a certain effect on the listener. I am happy with what we have achieved, and I hope our fans appreciate it too." Vocalist Jonny Davy states, "We wrote the material that became the 'Doom' EP at a very young age and the sound of this upcoming record is a much different one than anything we've done before. We're anxious for its release and we hope everyone who hears it will enjoy." The final track listing for Genesis is: 01. Bearing The Serpent's Lamb 02. Reduced to Mere Filth 03. Altered From Catechization 04. Upheaval 05. Embedded 06. Strings of Hypocrisy 07. Martyrdom Unsealed 08. Blasphemy 09. The Divine Falsehood 10. Coalescing Prophecy The brand new JFAC song "Embedded," as well as a sneak peak at the Genesis cover artwork can be found on the band's Myspace page.
