Following “Monster Rodeo” in 2008 and “Big Fish” (DMCHR 71107) in 2012, Cowboys From Hell bring us their third album, “Running Man”. The three Zurich residents are once again taking a real risk, breaking with conventions and stereotypes. The Cowboys from Hell are still loud and wild but their sound is no longer about a racket as a distinctive feature. Instead, the common playing attitude is in the current centre of the collective desires. “We have become more compact,” the saxophonist summed up. A controlled eruption that includes pieces like “Breaking Stones”, “First Song”, “Speed Of Sound”, “Wicked Game”, “Urbi Et Orbit”, “The Slope”, “I’ll Be Fine”, “Vintage Baby” or the title song clearing the path from the volcano down into the valley. When everything has come to rest, when the lava has cooled, then suddenly there is a piece of hitherto unknown, fascinating music in the wide landscape. An adrenalin-containing pleasure.
