Ruination (CD)
Job for a Cowboy have taken a lot of abuse from undergrounder-than-thou types for selling records to the wrong people. However, judged purely as music, without worrying about who's listening to it and why, 2009's RUINATION, like their prior album, GENESIS, is a very solid example of modern technical deathcore. Vocalist Jonny Davy has expanded his range somewhat on this album, coming across like a cross between the Black Dahlia Murder's Trevor Strnad (in his rapid-fire switching between low growls and high-pitched shrieks) and Lamb of God's Randy Blythe (in his ability to inject a redneck twang into death metal's usual guttural eruptions). Behind him, the band constructs an intricate scaffolding of downtuned guitar riffs, almost subsonic bass, and obviously triggered but cleanly mixed and concussive drums. The songs on RUINATION seem less disjointed than those on GENESIS, functioning as fully formed compositions rather than mere collections of riffs. Job for a Cowboy are all about pleasing their audience, and maybe that's why the screwfaced diehards on death metal message boards hate them so much.
