Job For a Cowboy: Genesis

Technical death metal and metalcore collide on the Metal Blade debut for Job For a Cowboy. Genesis is full-bore, go for the juggular brutality, filled with songs that barely let up for a second from the start all the way to the end of the brief yet intense 30+ minute run time. Yes, that's correct, another new release that barely scratches the half-hour mark. Much like the recent Beneath the Massacre release, this one also bashes you over the head and pummels you into oblivion, and by the time you try to wipe the blood that's dripping from your gaping wound, the CD is done. No matter, it's a wild ride that all extreme metal fans should hop on. Crushing guitar riffs and manic blast beats permeate monstrous cuts like "Bearing the Serpent's Lamb", "Reduced to Mere Filth", "Embedded", and "Strings Of Hypocrisy", laying waste to anything in its path and taking no prisoners. At times, the mechanical nature of the drums have a certain Meshuggah-like quality to them, and the vocals sort of have an early Lamb of God feel to them. As brutal as most of this sounds, and it is for the most part, there are moments of atmosphere as well as catchy guitar melodies woven into these crushing songs, making Genesis something you will easily want to come back to. Job For a Cowboy aren't reinventing the wheel here by any means, but this is well executed extreme metal that is a cut above a lot of what is out there these days.
