Job For A Cowboy have returned after a nine-year absence with a new track titled “The Agony Seeping Storm“. Their absence has been felt across the heavy music landscape. That’s because their story up until now is one that will forever be written in folklore. Finding overnight fame thanks to Myspace and their stunning debut EP Doom, they looked destined to be deathcore’s leading lights. However, as time went on, their sound and style shifted, focusing more on a straight-up death metal style. This helped them to branch out into two different worlds whilst still being heroes in the eyes of many. Their last full-length arrived in 2014 in the form of Sun Eater, a dense and destructive piece of progressive battery. But now, a new chapter is beginning, and they are picking up right where they left off.

The Agony Seeping Storm” feels like a breath of fresh air into the death metal genre. Technically vast, beautifully guttural and astonishing dense, it’s a stunning composition of haunting proportions. Fierce chugs, triumphant solos and throat-shredding vocals aplenty, it is well worth the long wait time for it to arrive. It’s a welcome return from one of heavy music’s most fascinating success stories.

And the track’s video is just as vast and fascinating as the music that it accompanies. A man dabbles in substances and dark magic as we take his journey into the unknown alongside him. It all culminates with a visit from a horrid beast and a finale that tests what we know to be right and wrong. It’s an epic, to say the least.

Vocalist Jonny Davy had this to say it all:

“‘The Agony Seeping Storm‘ gives a slice of our upcoming concept record. Regarding the video, the band collaborated extensively with director K. Hunter Lumar (Digital Mile), while our bassist, Nick Schendzielos, co-directed. The concept was inspired by a close friend who embarked on a relentless quest for profound enlightenment through the incessant abuse of hallucinogenic drugs.

“However, as they delved deeper into their religious-like experimentation, they began exhibiting symptoms of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. They came to believe that they could access an alternate, esoteric reality through hallucinogenic intoxication, where they encountered gnostic and biblical figures and imagery.

“These songs reflect their thoughts, ideas, and experiences.”
