"Tarnished Gluttony", the new NSFW video from Arizona extreme metallers Job For A Cowboy, has premiered and can now be seen below. The disturbing nine-and-a-half-minute clip was directed by Michael Panduro. The song is taken from the band's newest release Demonocracy, out since April through Metal Blade Records.

Vocalist Jonny Davy stated: "'Tarnished Gluttony' originally runs off the idea of blind faith into our government and monetary system. The director ran with the idea and spliced it with a H.P. Lovecraftian twist. The video streams the fascination of religion and the actions people justify in the name of religion, and this video is a spin on the old biblical tale of Abraham and Isaac, however, set in the world of Lovecraftian mythology. The point is, acting blindly in faith to a Christian deity is just as absurd as worshiping squid like monsters from space who live under the sea."

Director Michael Panduro had this to say: "As a commercial director, I'm a complete failure. The band asked for just one thing and I couldn't deliver. Indeed, this video has no boobs."

Job for a cowboy after Demonocracy, have really grown into themselves, It's a great thing to see.

Agreed, they've definitely stepped up their game in the songwriting department and their music reflects a certain growth or maturity that was clearly lacking in their early releases. Demonocracy is a good album, although I'm not sure who deserves credit for their change in direction. Probably their vocalist, being that he's a founding member, but they replaced a couple musicians earlier and maybe those guys brought in some kind of influence that that rest of the band members took to. In any case, I'm looking forward to the next album already, hoping they improve yet again.

I still love their earlier work, especially the DOOM Ep, but this was great.

Also, wierd ass video.

I like the song. Started listening to them right after Schendzielos joined. The video is weird. I am not familiar with HP Lovecraft's work. Can someone please tell me where the Biblical story ends and where the Lovecraft begins

Well they are not separated really, this is more like, reimagining the biblical tale in a Lovecraftian fashion. In the original tale it's something like, God asks Abraham to sacrifice that which is most precious to him and as such Abraham takes his son Isaac up a mountain and prepares to sacrifice him (of course, he had his son carry the wood for the altar up the mountain for his own sacrifice, good ol biblical cruelty never ceases to amaze me) and then God stops him when he sees that he'd be willing to do it.

In the vid you see the guy actually kill the boy and stuffs an octopus-like thing in stead of his innards (tentacled aquatic aberrations feature prominently in HP Lovecraft's works) and then puts him in the sea (in the world created by Lovecraft there is an undersea "city" called R'lyeh where an old entity called Cthulhu (who of course is also a tentacled aberration) sleeps for aeons and as such the sea as a place for unknown evils also feature prominently in his stories), that is something that doesn't happen in the Bible
