Job For A Cowboy — Sun Eater

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

★★★☆ This is JFAC’s most technical, ambitious, and impressive album to date, with the band sounding as much like BTBAM than BDM. For one thing, every performance is tight (special shoutout to Intronaut’s Danny Walker, who handles the drumming duties on this album, and elevates the entire proceedings). For another, Jason Suecof’s production is a perfect fit, and oh my god so much bass guitar all over this goddamned thing I love it! But this album does feel a little overlong and exhausting at 46 minutes (a common pitfall of kitchen-sink metal), and as a result, you may want to remember more of the magical moments than you actually can when it’s all over.
