Job For A Cowboy – Gloom EP – Mini Review

By James Terry  //  Music Reviews  //  No Comments

Job For A Cowboy recently undergone a few member changes and entered the studio to see how the new line-up would mesh, the result a four song EP entitled Gloom. It distinctly shows the band has continued towards a more traditional death metal sound. Overall I am still not sold on Davy’s vocals but personally, I never have from the days of him squeaking on pig squeels but at least they don’t use them anymore. The guitars and drums push the album forward reminding me a lot of some of their melodeath label mates at times. The riffs are truly the only hook; while the album drives onward the solos are the only thing keeping me entertained. Job For A Cowboy certainly has progressed since their beginnings but they still have some ground to make up before they are at the next level. Overall Gloom is a slightly above average death metal EP, it just needs a few more hooks to force the listener to listen to it again and again. [James]
