What they think they're Black Dahlia incarnates now?

Garbage band. Nothing even remotely good since Doom.

"Garbage band. Nothing even remotely good since Doom."

I literally laughed out loud at this. Are you serious? Doom was the epitome of terrible. Why do you think they changed their style so quickly?

EP sounds legit so far though. And I'll agree it sounds BDM-esque, not that that's a bad thing.

Doom > Genesis > Ruination.

Sorry I'm a -core fan so I liked Doom the most. But, this EP is sounding really good so it's probably
going to change my mind on Doom being the best.

Yeah I'm for sure getting this. I'm happy that this band is constantly improving. I sometimes wonder if the "chug chug, bree bree" shit on the "Doom" EP was just a genius marketing tool to get attention before changing to real death metal.

does anyone else think it's funny that they had an ep called doom and now they have one called gloom? will listen to this eventually. i actually like ruination, whereas i find genesis generally pretty bad and doom an amusing, but poor ep, so i'm interested to see how this will sound

Doom may not be the pinnacle of metal, but I find it's a fun listen. I like some songs by these guys though I don't really consider myself a fan. Saw them opening for BTBAM and he said "this is from our new ep ironically titled 'gloom"

Wasn't bad. I think that's all this band has ever been though; "Not Bad". Nothing exceptional, but nothing worth complaining about. I think one of there strongest moments was on their first Demo back in '04. 'What We Once Called Home' is one of their best songs, I reckon.

then your perception of good live bands is clearly off-kilter. jfac live is like 5 people playing 5 different songs at once, and not in the cool grindcore way.

I wouldn't mind another Genesis. While is was generic, it was done so well that it's possibly the only 'straight forward-generic" DM albums I bother listening to nowadays.

Also, band is pretty okay live.

Guys, there are PLENTY worse bands than Job For A Cowboy. At least the members know how to play their instruments.

That said, I heard these guys play one of the songs off this EP during the BTBAM tour. It was surprisingly good, I may give this a quick listen to see if they managed to make something that halfway decent. But if it ends up like Genesis, then FUCK.

that's the worst argument ever.

if I eat a bad meal and complain to the restaurant about it, they're not going to point to a piece of dog shit and say "hey, at least it's not that!" because it actually doesn't make my meal any better.

Really? I admittedly haven't seen them since they had Elliott and Ravi in the band, but they put on a Goddamn good show back then. Then again, that's when Entities was a "new" song, so it was actually Job For A Cowboy, not the Johnny Davy band.
