Job For A Cowboy – Ruination
Ruination is the second album from the new leaders of the new wave of extreme music Job For A Cowboy and every sign says that we are in front of one of the best album of the year. The opening track Unfurling A Darkened Gospel is in my opinion the perfect demonstration of what I'm saying: there's all a sick death metal album needs to have. Fury, technique, melody and groove. Summon The Hounds and Constitutional Masturbation are only another couple of titles of memorable songs: and we are only at the first third tracks... Every song is incredibly arranged and it's quite impossible to find something wrong: the structures are solid, complicate but at the same time everything is at the right place; the single performances are something of perfect, starting with the great growling and the particular screaming vocals, passing through the guitars and bass wall of sound, ending with the monstrous drumming; these guys have learned how to use their huge skills to create 10 songs where the virtuosity is only the slave of the mind: technique and groove on the same level, awesome and never nauseating solos, refrains and blind anger... it doesn't matter if the killer is running fast or if he's walking slowly: the final result is guaranteed. An annihilation superbly recorded and produced. Ruination is the real massive brutal job for a cowboy!! Buy it!!
