When you consider the impact that BIGELF had in 2008 with Cheat the Gallows, it’s inevitable that people expected the highly-rated band from Los Angeles to strike again quickly and fiercely. But instead we got an astonishing silence due to an impromptu hiatus and the tragic death of guitarist A.H.M. Butler-Jones. However, all that is about to change with the arrival of Into the ...

4.0 out of 5 stars One Step Closer to BIgelf 5 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I never liked Cheat The Gallows. There, I said it. Although it contained two cracking songs ( Hydra & Counting Sheep ), the production let the album down badly.
Five years later, Ace Mark & Froth have left. Damon remains in the camp, handling vox,keys,guitars,bass & production.
The trump card is Mike Portnoy on drums. For several songs Duffy Snowhill plays bass.
Yes, but what about the songs ?
The shorties are OK - Incredible Time Machine, Theatre Of Dreams , Control Freak........
...........but the long stuff is Beatle/Focus/Genesistastic Mate. The Madman, High, Harry McQuhae ( listen out for the Bitter End ), Edge Of Oblivion ( sounding like White Russian ) & the tilte track are absolute belters

We have a production that is crisp & bright, sounding much more like Doom & Hex; so lots heavier, that keeps an Opeth fan happy.

Damon Fox - part Emmerson, part Oldfield, all Madhatter.And now for the tour..........

4.0 out of 5 stars Really rather good 11 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After hearing the single 'Already gone' on the radio recently, I picked this up... it is the first album of theirs I've heard, and I now intend to pick up a few more from the back catalogue.

Other reviews describe Bigelf as 'The Beatles vs. Sabbath'. That's pretty spot on. I'd describe it as melody-driven prog metal. There is a healthy dose of theatre, and most of the tracks work well. There are a couple of weak links, though, which prevent it getting the full 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bigelf Into The Maelstrom - 4 Stars 7 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was really gutted when I heard about the troubles that Bigelf were having as they had become one of my favourite bands, I saw them many years ago at the Barfly in Camden and they were absolutely awesome, worthy of a far bigger venue more befitting a band of their calibre and talent. So when I heard they were releasing a new album I was absolutely over the moon and couldn't wait to hear it.

I don't agree with the previous reviewer regarding Cheat The Gallows, I thought it was an amazing album and don't really understand what he is referring to in terms of the production on that album as I thought it was fine. Personally Hex is my favourite album, very closely followed by Cheat The Gallows, this album, Closer to Doom and Money Machine (in that order).

The reason I didn't enjoy this quite as much as Hex and Cheat The Gallows for me is down to the lack of a proper guitarist. Guitar parts on this album are undertaken by Damon Fox himself with occasional input from additional guitarist Luis Maldonado and whilst both are competent, neither of them are Ace Mark. His guitar playing on the previous albums are what gave many of the tracks on both Hex and Cheat The Gallows that extra bit of genius, I really loved his playing style, a kind of mix of Tony Iommi, David Gilmour and Brian May and I think his presence is missed on this album; I find it gets to the bit of the song where you would normally have a really cool, measured solo that perfectly fits the song, such as the solo on "The Evils of Rock & Roll" off the Cheat The Gallows album and it isn't quite there which I find a bit frustrating as I just think to myself "damn that would have been such an awesome song if it had an Ace Mark guitar solo on it!".
