Doom is the first EP by Job for a Cowboy.

Background[edit]

This EP was released on December 6, 2005 through the King of the Monsters label.[3] It was then re-released on major record label, Metal Blade Records in 2006.[4]

A music video was created for the song "Entombment of a Machine" in which an elderly man is shown burying machines into the ground along with clips in between of the band performing in a desert-like atmosphere. This is the only album in which Davy employs "pig squeal" vocals.

Critical reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 2.5/5 stars[1]

Allmusic reviewer Cosmo Lee stated: "Doom is competent, but trades in sounds, not songs." in which Lee was referring to the fact, that Job for a Cowboy has changed their musical style with their follow-up release Genesis, which is a purist death metal-sound oriented album, Lee then ended the review stating: "Almost overnight, hordes of MySpace copycats sprang up, even lifting the band's logo font. This is where it all started - or ended, depending on your perspective."[1]

The track "Knee Deep" was central to a popular YouTube video in which the track was synchronized to a clip of the SpongeBob SquarePants episode "Band Geeks".[1] The clip features various members of the SpongeBob SquarePants cast playing instruments along with "Knee Deep" overlaid to it (originally in the episode appearing as performing the song "Sweet Victory" by David Glen Eisley).[5]
