Unbelievable. If you had told me 12 months ago that Cannibal Corpse and Job For A Cowboy would be in this final contest, I would've been torn between disbelief and despair. But here we are, with two albums that have clearly earned their way to the top. Both A Skeletal Domain and Sun Eater have loaded with memorable tunes that feature great musicianship and wicked riffs. But after listening to both albums repeatedly back to back, I found myself more impatient to get back to Sun Eater. And so, this year's Gilded Arse goes to... Job For A Cowboy!
