The Return of Job For a Cowboy

2023-08-29 by franklinbumbleton | 64 Comments
For the first time in 9 years, Deathcore trailblazers turned Prog Death Metal masters Job For a Cowboy have returned with a new single "The Agony Seeping Storm". The single continues on the path that the group began to tread on 2014's Sun Eater and is the first slice from their yet-to-be announced 5th Full Length Album.

Speaking on the new single, vocalist Jonny Davy said, "‘The Agony Seeping Storm’ gives a slice of our upcoming concept record. Regarding the video, the band collaborated extensively with director K. Hunter Lumar (Digital Mile), while our bassist, Nick Schendzielos, co-directed.

"The concept was inspired by a close friend who embarked on a relentless quest for profound enlightenment through the incessant abuse of hallucinogenic drugs. However, as they delved deeper into their religious-like experimentation they began exhibiting symptoms of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. They came to believe that they could access an alternate, esoteric reality through hallucinogenic intoxication, where they encountered gnostic and biblical figures and imagery. These songs reflect their thoughts, ideas, and experiences."

It rules, but it didn't really blow my mind like Sun of Nihility did when that first dropped. Maybe this requires more listens.

Still, this, Dying Fetus, Cannibal Corpse and new Cryptopsy ohhhh boy

Sun Eater was so far and above everything they'd made before that I was bummed when they went on hiatus right afterward. Stoked on this. Glad to see they're continuing with the highly audible bass and Revocation-ish guitar solos. Never a bad thing hearing more of Davy's vocals either

I'm just saying they're doing good overall and going to much better heights than in the past. I couldn't stand anything before Sun Eater

I think that JFAC, if anything, has been a band that has strived to push themselves stylistically. It took them a while, but between helping define an entire genre in deathcore, to the famous pig squeels (for better or worse), they have had a knack for introducing interesting elements into the metal landscape.

For example, sun eater has been hailed for the unrivaled use of the bass in the mix, bringing it way up so that the entirety of the music can be heard. Johnny has always had some of the most unique and raw vocals in the business as well.

Not as impressed with this as everyone else seems to be, but it is decent. Doesn't stand out much from Sun Eater, imo, and isn't as good as the best songs there.

You might be memeing, but all these fools I see online talking about Sun Eater is their only good album is hilarious to me. These guys have always been good at what they do whether you like deathcore or not.

tbh Deathcore -> Prog Death is the arc every single deathcore band should strive for.

Yeah this kills, I love how the slap bass part about halfway in goes directly into what feels like it should be a breakdown, but it never comes. Doubt it's intentional, but stylistically it couldn't be a bigger fuck you to their deathcore stuff.

Nick kills it on bass in this band. Honestly forgot he'd joined in with them. Gonna follow this up with some Xenosapien.
Track is a banger. Would like to catch them live to hear some of the more recent stuff. Got to see them early 2010 and they put on a good show back then too

It’s not really fair to compare their early material with their later material seeing how the vocalist is the only original member.
