JOB FOR A COWBOY – More Studio Footage Posted From ‘Demonocracy’ Studio Sessions

Drum Magazine Catches Up With Jon Rice; Band To Play Russia, Ukraine And Belarus

New footage from JOB FOR A COWBOY’s Demonocracy studio sessions is currently available at the band’s official landing page. Witness Jon Rice demolish his kit during “Fearmonger” at THIS LOCATION.

Additionally, Drum Magazine recently caught up with Rice to talk about his natural sounding approach to the critically lauded record noting, “If you detect more of a feel-oriented style on JOB FOR A COWBOY’s Demonocracy, credit Jon ‘The Charn’ Rice for that extra bit of human touch. Eschewing sound replacement, scientific Pro Tools quantizing, and the usual by-the-numbers approach favored by most death metal bands (and their power-hungry producers), Charn and JFAC did it old school; well, almost. While the band certainly used computers to keep the perfect beast drummer in perfect time, they didn’t follow the typical click track route. Similarly, Charn opted for natural drum tones and sounds. All this anti-machine behavior gives Demonocracy a serious kick to the groin, and on songs like ‘Children Of Deceit,’ ‘Imperium Wolves,’ and ‘Fearmonger,’ 24-year-old Charn smacks down single strokes, bleeds double pedal profundity and generally rips the heads off your favorite Death Metal destroyers.” READ THE FULL STORY HERE.

Praise For Demonocracy:

“…an ass-kicking, skull-cracking record,” — Alternative Press

“…a very strong exercise in slickly-produced, technically sound death metal…” — Decibel,

“Demonocracy affords JOB FOR A COWBOY another album to legitimize their death metal sound, which was set forth starting with Ruination…Bringing in guitarist Tony Sannicandro and Cephalic Carnage bassist Nick Schendzielos translates to dynamics not heard on any JOB FOR A COWBOY album to date…” — About.com

“The album plays like a constant assault, and while never backing off it still manages to add enough structure for individual songs to become memorable… the soloing is surprisingly catchy and well-executed while still managing to sit well in the context of the songs.” — Ultimate-Guitar

JOB FOR A COWBOY – Announce Japanese Tour Dates

Posted in Death Metal, Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on April 17, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Fourth Installment Of “The Leads Are Weak” Video Series Posted

Death Metal collective JOB FOR A COWBOY today announce four special headlining dates in Japan! Following their trek on the Metal Alliance Tour, which is currently underway, the band will play two shows in Tokyo as well as Nagoya and Okinawa beginning on May 18. Confirmed dates are below:

JOB FOR A COWBOY in Japan:

5/18/2012 Shibuya Cyclone  – Tokyo, Japan w/ United

5/19/2012 Sakae R.A.D – Nagoya, Japan w/ Infernal Revulsion, Death I Am, Hostile Eyes, Neuerwind

5/20/2012 Shibuya Milkyway – Tokyo, Japan w/ Arise In Stability, Metal Safari, Infernal Revulsion, Death I Am

5/21/2012 Chatan Salt & Papper – Okinawa, Japan w/ Illuminati, Shores, Roach, Shakes Beard

___________________________________

JOB FOR A COWBOY will be touring in support of their brand new studio recording, Demonocracy, released in North America last week through Metal Blade Records. The intricate, Jason Suecof-produced offering tackles various political and economic themes and continues to crush the masses nationally. In a recent review Ultimate-Guitar noted of the record: “The album plays like a constant assault, and while never backing off it still manages to add enough structure for individual songs to become memorable,” adding that, “the soloing is surprisingly catchy and well-executed while still managing to sit well in the context of the songs.”

Alternative Press calls Demonocracy “an ass-kicking, skull-cracking record,” while Stereokiller agrees: “…a solid slab of some really heavy technical death metal. JOB FOR A COWBOY has separated themselves from former peers such as All Shall Perish and Whitechapel, and has now firmly fitted themselves with the likes of Suffocation and Dying Fetus.”

In related news, the fourth in the “The Leads Are Weak” instructional video series by guitar wizard Tony Sannicandro is currently posted for your viewing pleasure. Subtitled “Getting Sexual,” Sannicandro elaborates: “One of the most important things to me in soloing is good phrasing. The first half of the ‘Misery Reformatory’ solo is a pretty cool example of good phrasing that fits the song. It would have been easy to go to the classic E-minor and start burning like the clap, but I figured it would be better to break it down a little simpler and make it sexy. This is easy to play but it’s a good lesson in outlining the solo like the curves of a beautiful broad.” See for yourself at THIS LOCATION.

JOB FOR A COWBOY – ‘Demonocracy’ Album Streaming In Its Entirety At Revolvermag.com

Third “The Leads Are Weak” Video Posted

Metal Alliance Tour 2012 – Remaining Dates

__________________________

Beginning today, Revolver Magazine will host a stream of JOB FOR A COWBOY’s upcoming Demonocracy full-length in its entirety. Produced by Jason Suecof (Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Trivium) at Audiohammer Studios, the intricate, thought-provoking and wholly pulverizing Death Metal opus will see its North American release on April 10, 2012 through Metal Blade Records.

Crowned “an ass-kicking, skull-cracking record,” in a 4/5 review by Alternative Press, the nine-track production tackles a host of political and economic themes including media propaganda, the “war industry” and the staggering debts faced by America. Immerse yourself in the full audio wreckage at THIS LOCATION.

JOB FOR A COWBOY are currently molesting ears across North America on the Metal Alliance Tour. Joined by The Faceless, Dying Fetus, 3 Inches Of Blood, Impending Doom, Wretched, and headliners, Devildriver, the remaining dates are below.

Visit the band’s OFFICIAL METAL BLADE PAGE for Demonocracy pre-order info, limited edition merch bundles and the third in a series of instructional video posts featuring guitar wizard Tony Sannicandro. Dubbed “The Leads Are Weak,” the mini clips offer playing tips and an up-close look at Sannicandro’s astounding skills and technique. In the third installment, Sannicandro performs an exercise called “double dutch.” Sannicandro elaborates: “This is a two-note per string lick that incorporates a slight Dimebag feel and some chromatics. Two notes per string is often neglected by many guitar players, because three notes a string is much easier to get up to speed, but two note patterns are an OG way to put some bluesy flavor in your lick-age.”

Stay tuned for more JOB FOR A COWBOY news including the upcoming video premiere of “Imperium Wolves.”

JOB FOR A COWBOY – Death Metal Goliaths To Unleash New Studio Album: ‘Demonocracy’

Demonocracy Album Info And New Track “Nourishment Through Bloodshed” Revealed

Death Metal goliaths JOB FOR A COWBOY will unleash their brand new studio recording entitled Demonocracy this Spring. Set for North American release on April 10, 2012 via Metal Blade Records, the nine-track Demonocracy was produced by Jason Seucof (Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Trivium) who recorded the band’s blistering Ruination full-length, at Audiohammer Studios, and features another strikingly detailed concept cover by artist Brent Elliott White.

Returning with an oddball lineup, the nine-track Demonocracy seethes with unbridled vulgarity and potent disgust. Over their long existence the quintet have built a yearning fan base through their devotion to touring and a diehard commitment to creating relentlessly hostile and involving music, and in 2012 JOB FOR A COWBOY have never sounded hungrier.

Commented the band in a collective statement: “However ruthless an age may actually have been, it’s style transmits it’s music only.”

Check out the bludgeoning new single, “Nourishment Through Bloodshed,” as well as cover art at the band’s OFFICIAL LANDING PAGE.
