Arizona death metallers JOB FOR A COWBOY have unleashed the first 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 skill and technique. Clip #1, which can be seen below, showcases the solo from "Signature Of Starving Power" off the band's "Gloom" EP.
JOB FOR A COWBOY's new studio album, "Demonocracy", will be released on April 10 via Metal Blade Records. The nine-track CD was produced by Jason Seucof (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, WHITECHAPEL, TRIVIUM) who recorded the band's blistering "Ruination" full-length, at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida, and features another strikingly detailed concept cover by artist Brent Elliott White.
"Demonocracy" track listing:
01. Children of Deceit
02. Nourishment Through Bloodshed
03. Imperium Wolves
04. Tongueless and Bound
05. Black Discharge
06. The Manipulation Stream
07. The Deity Misconception
09. Tarnished Gluttony
With the critical praise and fan adoration bestowed upon 2009's "Ruination", it would have been easy for the band to rest upon their proverbial laurels and serve up "Ruination Part II". But from the moment "Demonocracy" roars to life, it is wholly evident that this is a far more musically accomplished beast that takes their signature sound to the next level. From the abrasive blast of opener "Children Of Deceit" to the disconcerting strains of "The Deity Misconception" or the brooding, heart-wrenching closer "Tarnished Gluttony", this is a record drenched in equal parts misanthropy and naked rage, and from start to finish they suspend the listener by the throat.
