New footage from JOB FOR A COWBOY‘s Demonocracy studio sessions is currently available at the band’s official landing page. Witness Jon Rice demolish his kit during “Fearmonger” at THIS LOCATION.
Additionally, Drum Magazine recently caught up with Rice to talk about his natural sounding approach to the critically-lauded record noting, “If you detect more of a feel-oriented style on JOB FOR A COWBOY‘s Demonocracy, credit Jon ‘The Charn’ Rice for that extra bit of human touch. Eschewing sound replacement, scientific Pro Tools quantizing, and the usual by-the-numbers approach favored by most death metal bands (and their power hungry producers), Charn and JFAC did it old school; well, almost. While the band certainly used computers to keep the perfect beast drummer in perfect time, they didn’t follow the typical click track route. Similarly, Charn opted for natural drum tones and sounds. All this anti-machine behavior gives Demonocracy a serious kick to the groin, and on songs like ‘Children Of Deceit,’ ‘Imperium Wolves,’ and ‘Fearmonger,’ 24-year-old Charn smacks down single strokes, bleeds double pedal profundity, and generally rips the heads off your favorite death metal destroyers.” READ THE FULL STORY HERE.

“…an ass-kicking, skull-cracking record,” — Alternative Press and
“…a very strong exercise in slickly-produced, technically sound death metal…” — Decibel,
“Demonocracy affords JOB FOR A COWBOY another album to legitimize their death metal sound, which was set forth starting with Ruination…Bringing in guitarist Tony Sannicandro and Cephalic Carnage bassist Nick Schendzielos translates to dynamics not heard on any JOB FOR A COWBOY album to date…” – About.com
“The album plays like a constant assault, and while never backing off it still manages to add enough structure for individual songs to become memorable… the soloing is surprisingly catchy and well-executed while still managing to sit well in the context of the songs.” – Ultimate-Guitar
