The third single from the new JFAC album - 'The Celestial Antidote' - is streaming exclusively now on MetalInjection.net!
Guitarist Al Glassman discusses the
song's significance: "Bobby Thompson, who left us as a full time member in
2010, continues to remain a part of Job for a Cowboy always, and once again
contributed an incredible track to the new record. For those who have heard
'Tarnished Gluttony' (his contribution to the last record), you will not be
disappointed with his latest song. It's moody and heavy as hell, and features
some of my favorite guitar work on the record on Tony's end. After years of
writing with Bobby, I can honestly say that this is his best work yet with JFAC
and I hope you guys dig it too!"
Producer Jason Suecof, vocalist
Jonny Davy, guitarists Al Glassman and Tony Sannicandro, bassist Nick
Schendzielos, and session drummer Danny Walker have crafted a cerebral and
accomplished piece of technical death metal. JOB FOR A COWBOY wrapped up
touring in 2013 as part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival that
summer. Following that performance, the band collectively decided to sharpen
their focus and set an intent on cooking up a record that encompassed their full
dynamic range of talent. The group had all agreed on the main course being a
desire for futuristic tones, a wider spectrum of textures and tempos, and an
emphasis on slightly more ancestral song construction. The result, "Sun
Eater," does not just sound like a new record, it sounds like an
entirely new band.
Listen to 'Sun of Nihility' and pre-order the
album (out this week Friday!) now on CD and vinyl at metalblade.com/jobforacowboy.
Jason Suecof, whose first bout with the band was 2009's "Ruination," has
now worked with the band for over six years. Few are more familiar with how
JOB FOR A COWBOY operates in the studio than Suecof, and he was also
feeling the "vibe" on "Sun Eater": "This band is composed
entirely of top notch musicians all the way around and they are clearly at the
top of their game. This new album is a stellar combination of everyone's efforts
and what we have now is something that conveys everyone's musicianship without
being techy for the sake of being tech. This album has got feeling and it is
"Sun Eater" has received an excellent
response from the press!
"This album is different, this album is
great, progressive, artistic and atmospherically compelling in a similar way as
the most recent masterpieces by Gorguts and Ulcerate. Magnum opus alert!"
Patrick Schmidt, Rock Hard magazine Germany, 9/10 points
EATER is technically highly sophisticated death metal, oscillating with plenty
of tempo- and textural changes!" Vincent Grundke, Metal Hammer magazine
Germany, 6/7 points
"SUN EATER displays the creativity of
watchful, inventive Metal musicians who sense that in extreme music, not
everything has been done yet and that it is rewarding to question established
conventions. Jason Suecof's production sets the stage for JOB FOR A COWBOY to
run riot and shine!" Arne Kupetz, Legacy magazine Germany, 13/15
