Job for a Cowboy 

An argument could be made that the only things differentiating many of today's metal upstarts from one another are hometowns and band names. Glendale, Arizona's Job for a Cowboy just escapes that generic ignominy, mainly because the electrifying riffs and fills that guitarists Ravi Bhadriraju and Bobby Thompson peel off don't surf the same putrid ravines of black bile that singer Johnny Davy bodyboards.  Props are also due new drummer Jon Rice, who, on Genesis, refuses to keep time in that technically amazing, cyborg-jackhammer style that's been threatening to dehumanize this genre of late.
