If you are a fan of classic rock like Zeppelin, Floyd, Queen, Sabbath and David Bowie, then you are going to want to check out BigElf. The most recent albums, ‘Hex’ and ‘Cheat The Gallows’ are very cool. But when ‘Hex’ came out, I thought that they almost nailed it, but not quite. Whether it was the tracking or the inclusion of an overly clunky song, I thought that with just a little more or less of something it could have been amazing. The latest album ‘Cheat The Gallows’ suffered the same fate, in my opinion. The solution, of course, was to take the raw material and give it the Barking Chicken treatment. The result is ‘Hex The Gallows’.

In light of BigElf’s dramatic flair, we can talk about this in terms of the film industry. As the artist, BigElf is the director. They shot and edited their film to their liking, but then the big studio Barking Chicken Productions got ahold of it. How nice, but . . . I have now left swaths of their precious art on the cutting room floor. Tough. Now we’ve got a blockbuster on our hands.

Long term, ‘Hex The Gallows’ may be in league with well worn classics like Mother Love Bone and Monster Magnet’s ‘Dopes To Infinity’. Once you fall in love, though, you are going to want to get the director’s cut available commercially in the form of ‘Hex’ and ‘Cheat The Gallows’.
