In the fall of 2018, the Switzerland based band Cowboys from Hell presented their third album “Running Man”. The music shows a lot of variety and they create a musical hurricane out of funk-grooves, rock riffs and electronics. It can be reminiscent of Frank Zappa as well as Rage Against The Machine – you can recognize the influence of contemporary music and hear quotes from Jazz and Pop – or maybe even movie soundtracks.

Over the years the trio has gone through a surprisingly multi-faceted development. Although still powerful, their music has become much more subtle, refined and sustainable. Both the songs and the interplay are much more compact and authentic. The result is some fresh music with strong energy and loads of vitality.

The Cowboys from Hell were founded in 2005 with three musicians from different music scenes in Switzerland. Chrigel Bosshard and Marco Blöchlinger have been important members of pop groups such as Lunik, Marc Sway, Steffe La Cheffe or Myron for years. Christoph Irniger is on the road worldwide with his Jazz-trio and his band Pilgrim.

"this is music with wall-cracking energy"

Stereogum / The Hollywood Reporter

„Die Musik der Cowboys ist auf einem hohen Energielevel,

immer noch wild, immer noch Adrenalin-getrieben“

Aargauer Zeitung 

„Eine gelungene Mischung, getragen von brachialer Energie und ungezügelter Spielfreude“

 Jazzpodium

 

„Mächtige Sound-Druckwellen schlagen einem entgegen, die eruptive Musik reisst mit und lässt zwischendurch auch traumartige psychedelische Passagen zu“

NZZ am Sonntag 

 

„Musik von einem anderen Stern. Einfach nur mitreissend, aufregend und einnehmend vom ersten bis zum letzten Ton“

OVZ Altenburg

„Ein unverwechselbarer und klug ausgefeilter Stil, der auf überraschende Weise zarte Sensibilität und massive Grooves überzeugend vereint. Höllisch gut“

Rüsselsheimer Echo
