Job for a Cowboy: Premiere of entire “Gloom” EP

Starting today, the popular metal portal MetalSucks <http://www.metalsucks.net/2011/05/25/job-for-a-cowboy-gloom/>  is hosting the worldwide exclusive premiere of the upcoming JOB FOR A COWBOY (JFAC) EP Gloom. The Gloom EP will be available digitally and physically via mail-order only on June 7th. Fans wanting a physical copy of the Gloom EP should act quickly, though, as it is a limited edition run of only 2,500 copies. The EP features four new tracks of fine-tuned, visceral death metal featuring the re-invigorated lineup of Jonny Davy, Jon “Charn” Rice, Al Glassman and new guitarist Tony Sannicandro. The Gloom EP cover features new artwork from Ruination artist Brent Elliott White <http://brentelliottwhite.com/home.html> .

Commented vocalist Jonny Davy: “It honestly feels like it’s been quite awhile since we’ve released any new material to the public. With that said, we’re all pretty amped up to release this new EP and to play these new songs live. I’m aware that it’s stereotypical to claim that it’s a step forward for the band, but fuck it, it is. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.”

I AM ABOMINATION to Release New Digital EP, ‘Passion Of The Heist’, on July 19th, 2011 on Good Fight Music

I AM ABOMINATION is pleased to announce the upcoming release of their brand new digital EP, Passion Of The Heist, on July 19th, 2011. The digital EP is being released by GOOD FIGHT MUSIC, the same label that released I AM ABOMINATION’s first critically acclaimed full-length album, To Our Forefathers.

A new single from the digital EP will be released via the band’s official Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/IAmAbominationMusic on June 8th. Stay tuned for further announcements about this debut.

Passion Of The Heist is described by the band as a concept album, and was produced, written, engineered, mixed and mastered by guitarist Nick Sampson. The EP was also recorded at Nick Sampson’s studio in New Boston, MI. All lyrics on Passion Of The Heist were written by Brandon Good. The band plans on releasing new information about the concept of the EP with the release of the new single. Passion Of The Heist includes guest appearances, including an appearance by ATTACK ATTACK’s Caleb Shomo on the track ‘Ascension’.

“We’ve had such an amazing time putting hard work into this album, and we can’t wait for people to hear it,” states vocalist Phil Druyor. Guitarist Nick Sampson adds, “This is the first time we’ve ever sat down to write an album with no outside opinion, and it turned out awesome.”

TRACKLISTING: 1 Vivification 2 Abduction 3 Examination 4 Transformation 5 Ascension (ft.Caleb Shomo of ATTACK ATTACK) 6 Invasion

THE CONTORTIONIST to Co-Headline ‘Slaughter Survivors Tour’ This Summer – Featuring Conducting From The Grave, Scale The Summit and More!

Set to Support Veil of Maya on Brief Summer Tour, Including Hometown Dates in Indiana!

Indianapolis, Indiana’s prog-metal prodigies THE CONTORTIONIST have just announced brand new co-headlining tour dates on the SLAUGHTER SURVIVORS TOUR with Conducting From The Grave, Scale The Summit, Rings Of Saturn, Volumes, and Structures. The tour begins with a kick-off party in Hollywood, CA at the Key Club on July 21st. See below for all current tour dates.

The band recently announced tour dates with Veil of Maya to their summer touring schedule. The short run will take the guys through Illinois and Indiana on four dates in June. As mentioned above, the band is native to Indianapolis, IN and seldom performs live in the area, so this tour serves as an excellent and rare opportunity to witness the band in their hometown!

THE CONTORTIONIST released their debut full-length, Exoplanet, with GOOD FIGHT MUSIC on August 31st, 2010. Their infectious, progressive and rhythmic sounds have brought them comparisons to some of today’s metal greats, such as Meshuggah, The Acacia Strain, and Between the Buried and Me.
