JOB FOR A COWBOY have loosed a third cut from their upcoming “Sun Eater” album. “The Celestial Antidote” is #6 in the sequence of nine songs that, front to back, comprise one of the finest technical death metal albums in recent memory. “The Celestial Antidote” is streaming exclusively now on MetalInjection.net HERE.
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.

Audiohammer producer 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 fucking brutal!”
Sun Eater will be available via Metal Blade Records on November 11th in North America and November 7th/10th in Europe/UK.
