Job For A Cowboy
Gloom (EP)

Let the shit start. I really prefer the direction they went w/ Ruination, so after the first few listens, I was disappointed by this EP. It grew on me quite a bit though. Solid (almost technical?) death metal. As I said, I prefer the more straight forward death metal approach they took on Ruination, as they tried to get a little too technical and pretentious here IMO. Still a good listen. Signature of Starving Power is a solid track, vocal-wise my favorite song on the EP. Plastic Idols, for whatever reason, reminds me of the opening to Slayer's 'Show No Mercy'. JFAC seems to be losing quite a bit of their following (AKA all the dumbass deathcore kids don't like them anymore), so it will be interesting to see what they do with their full length, due later in 2012, I guess.
