Fans and freaks had to wait five years for the second Cowboys From Hell album.
"Big Fish" presents 9 original pieces from the Swiss trio (and one Pantera coverversion).
Lots of energy, weird tempos and electronic madness.
It was my pal Charly who called Christoph Irniger the Jimi Hendrix of the saxophone and he was right. As always.

I saw the band in concert at the Zapperlot! Festival last August.
They headlined day three playing a lot of material of "Big Fish".
They were great. One top of that, there was this superb moment when Christoph quoted Zappa in one of his pieces. Goosebumps.

Anyway, "Big Fish" is an amazing album.
It's essential listening !

Here's 40 seconds. Imagine what 40 minutes will do to you!
