Louisiana singer songwriter Dax Riggs, previously fronted Deadboy & The Elephantmen (and long before that the legendary underground metal band Acid Bath) before finally making this maiden voyage under his own name.
His parents divorced early on and Dax spent his childhood with his Jehovah Witness mother and spent his Saturdays taking to the streets of his neighbourhood on a mission to share information about the coming Armageddon and to save those who would listen. It came to an abrupt halt at the age of 10 after he viewed The Elephant Man on HBO one night, a film that single handedly decimated Dax’s beliefs.
‘If This Is Hell Then I'm Lucky’ introduced Riggs' move away from the harder, more purely metal terrain of his previous band Acid Bath and into a more eclectic sound that borrowed from psychedelic rock, alt-rock and blues as well as metal.
Originally Deadboy & The Elephantmen's 2002 debut album, ‘If This is Hell Then I’m Lucky’ has been long out of print and as Riggs was certainly the main creative force behind this album he is now re-branding it as his work instead of that of Deadboy & The Elephantmen
