JOB FOR A COWBOY: Exclusive Video Premiere Courtesy Of Bloody Disgusting!
- 15/08/12 –
Livedates in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus confirmed!
Some days ago prime horror portal Bloody Disgusting hosted the exclusive premiere of JOB FOR A COWBOY‘s Tarnished Gluttony video. The disturbing nine-and-a-half-minute clip was directed by Michael Panduro (Saint Vitus, Cephalic Carnage), and comes off the band’s Demonocracy full-length, issued earlier this year through Metal Blade Records.
Comments founding frontman Jonny Davy: “‘Tarnished Gluttony’ originally runs off the idea of blind faith into our government and monetary system. The director ran with the idea and spliced it with a H.P. Lovecraftian twist. The video streams the fascination of religion and the actions people justify in the name of religion, and this video is a spin on the old biblical tale of Abraham and Isaac, however, set in the world of Lovecraftian mythology. The point is, acting blindly in faith to a Christian deity is just as absurd as worshiping squid like monsters from space who live under the sea.”
Adds Panduro: “As a commercial director, I’m a complete failure. The band asked for just one thing and I couldn’t deliver. Indeed, this video has no boobs.”

Called “…an ass-kicking, skull-cracking record,” by Alternative Press and“…a very strong exercise in slickly-produced, technically sound death metal…” by Decibel, Demonocracy tackles a host of political and economic themes and continues to raise the eyebrows of fans and media alike.
“Fans of the band’s death metal era will be blown away by this one, and fans of death metal (and tech-death) in particular will not want to miss this.” – Mxdwn
“Demonocracy affords JOB FOR A COWBOY another album to legitimize their death metal sound, which was set forth starting with Ruination…Bringing in guitarist Tony Sannicandro and Cephalic Carnage bassist Nick Schendzielos translates to dynamics not heard on any JOB FOR A COWBOY album to date…” – About.com
“The album plays like a constant assault, and while never backing off it still manages to add enough structure for individual songs to become memorable…the soloing is surprisingly catchy and well-executed while still managing to sit well in the context of the songs.” – Ultimate-Guitar
“There is only so much bone crushing metal a body can take. JOB FOR A COWBOY does a very good job of biting your synapses, chewing you up and spitting you out bruised and bloody.” – This Is Not A Scene
