Job For A Cowboy completes new album

Friday, March 02, 2007 12:18 PM PT

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.

what? shitty pretentious song titles?

3/2/2007 12:40:19 PM
let the negative comments commence.

3/2/2007 12:45:12 PM
i really dont care what anybody thinks. i still enjoy this band. i wont be paying for this cd though

3/2/2007 12:55:34 PM
The kids in the band are like 19, they don't know what words like "coalescing" and "catechization" even mean!

3/2/2007 1:01:14 PM
metal/death metal/ progressive? hahahaha

3/2/2007 1:02:06 PM
Combining prophecy? hahahah fckwits

3/2/2007 1:04:13 PM
the new album should be entitled "Thank You Myspace"

3/2/2007 1:05:07 PM
they did get a little better. not that it really means anything though.

3/2/2007 1:06:28 PM
Hey do you know what band is not very good? This one.

3/2/2007 1:07:23 PM
Sounds a lot more solid than the old shit they were playing w/ no "brees" (that i can hear anyways). Kinda like the Red Chord, wait a minute...was that a t.R.C. song I just listened to? At least it's an improvement.

3/2/2007 1:08:47 PM
I'll admit. Trying a bit much to have uber-metal song titles... but I think it's worth a try before I get all Bree about it.

3/2/2007 1:09:19 PM
Bruuuutal TechDeathmetalcore!

3/2/2007 1:12:51 PM
"brand new song"? it's been on their for like, half a year.. no care. boring/bad live.

3/2/2007 1:17:31 PM
the song titles look like they were flipping through a dictionary and closed their eyes and picked random words

3/2/2007 1:17:34 PM
Anticipation for Genesis is such that the band has already been named one of "those bands that everyone forgets about a year later" by anyone who knows anything about music.

3/2/2007 1:36:01 PM

3/2/2007 1:36:04 PM
