I’m sure you know by now that we aren’t really huge Job For A Cowboy fans here at Heavy Blog; in fact, there are probably a few writers that despise them. I do appreciate their evolution from run of the mill deathcore to respectable death metal, though. Shit’s not bad, and I have no qualms about seeing them sandwiched between The Ocean and Between The Buried And Me this weekend. One thing that JFAC does get consistently right is their album artwork. Like Iron Maiden, Megadeth, and Children of Bodom, JFAC seems to carry a mascot through each album, and unlike the cliche grim reaper that Bodom has, I like this character as it’s something different.
The Gloom EP artwork above is a bit different from their previous work, but it’s still pretty rad by any means. If you haven’t heard it yet, you can listen to the new song “Misery Reformatory” below.
Gloom is out June 7th on Metal Blade. You can pre-order the EP here.
