Sun Eater marks yet another change in the Job for a Cowboy soundscape. This time instead of gnawing their teeth deeper into the sordid underbelly of corrupt politics and dirty underhanded corporate goings on using technically proficient death metal, they’ve decided to dig their claws wholly into the realms of fantasy and the supernatural using a dizzying, more progressive side of death metal. It’s not uncommon for bands to touch on topics far and away different from what they’re used to, but this time, it seems like JFAC is really leaving their comfort zone in terms of their writing because they’ve written something unique that stands out boldly from every other release up until this point.
Recommended for fans of All Shall Perish, Whitechapel, Carnifex, The Black Dahlia Murder, The Red Chord.
