AllMusic Review by

Striking a balance between technicality and brutality, Job for a Cowboy launch a no-frills, death metal attack on listeners with their third full-length, Demonocracy. With their deathcore period well behind them, it feels as though the band has settled in a groove with their sound, and while they haven't been doing anything particularly revolutionary, they've become a highly tuned, rock-solid beast of a band capable of delivering some precision heaviness on demand. While this approach may not appeal to people looking for someone to reinvent the wheel, it certainly makes for a refined album of galloping death metal capable of scratching that itch for some cathartic, mosh-ready mayhem. With their sound growing increasingly refined, it's only a matter of time before Job for a Cowboy makes another creative breakthrough. Until then, fans will just have to be satisfied with their incredibly consistent output of thundering sonic violence.
