Biography

Glendale, Phoenix AZ, United States (2003 – present)

Job for a Cowboy is an American / band from Glendale, Arizona. Formed in 2003, the band’s debut album Genesis was released in 2007, peaking at No. 54 on the US Billboard 200 and selling 13,000 copies in its first week of release. The second album, 2009’s Ruination, sold 10,600 copies in the United States in its first week to debut at position No. 42 on the Billboard 200 chart. The band comprises vocalist Jonny Davy, guitarists Tony Sannicandro and Al Glassman, bassist Nick Schendzielos, and drummer Jon “The Charn” Rice, with Davy being the only remaining founding member.

The band has played in international music festivals, including Download Festival, Mayhem Festival and Wacken Open Air.

Job for a Cowboy started as a deathcore group, and evolved into a predominantly death metal sound with their full-length debut Genesis. They have been described by The New York Times as “an Arizona band with a guttural, brute-force sound descended (indirectly) from hardcore punk” and “straightforwardly brutal act” by Rolling Stone magazine.

At the beginning of 2011, the band started work on an EP which was recorded in February at the Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida with producer Jason Suecof. Just before the recording process began, bassist Brent Riggs and guitarist Bobby Thompson departed from the band and were replaced by Nick Schendzielos of Cephalic Carnage and Tony Sannicandro, respectively. On April 13, 2011, a video appeared on the internet of drummer Jon Rice performing a new song in the studio. Job for a Cowboy issued their new EP on June 7, 2011, entitled Gloom, which was only made available for purchase through mail order and digital download.

    I've liked this band since Doom. They improved drastically after that and evolved into a powerhouse death metal band and let's hope they do not quit like Waking the Cadaver.

    besides Gorguts, sun eater album reminds me some of old Cryptopsy stuff.

    Sun Eater is pretty much a melodic version of Gorguts and Ulcerate so go for those bands

    Can anyone recommend some metal albums like Sun Eater? I haven't listened to this kind of quality metal in ages.

    I think Doom is the best because it's unique in fusing true death metal with deathcore. There isn't a lot of deathcore that has the same vibe Doom has. I think Doom has the most guitar riffs out of every old deathcore release I've ever listened to. Plus he was the best at pig squeals and it just had that super gritty production that makes it sound super heavy. (if you know of any albums like Doom please recommend it to me lol) The new stuff is good, but it's way too safe for me. I could put on any good death metal album and get the same vibe

    Damn, I didn't know Danny played on this album. No wonder it's fucking killer. Love the evolution of this band and can't wait to hear what's next. Good shit.

    sun of nihility is a killer track, and danny walker is a killer drummer - just the right amount of heavyness and groove. never really enjoyed their work before sun eater, tho.
