Dax Riggs

A crucial figure in the Southern branch of the extreme metal community, Dax Riggs was born in Evansville, IN, on October 15, 1973, where he lived with his mother after the divorce of his parents. As Riggs edged into adolescence, he began to question his mother's devotion to the faith of the Jehovah's Witnesses, and he moved to Houma, LA to live with his father. While initially Riggs didn't care for life down South, in his teens he developed a passion for rock & roll, and after singing with a pair of short-lived local bands, Riggs became the lead vocalist with the pioneering sludge metal band Acid Bath, featuring guitarists Sammy Duet and Mike Sanchez, bassist Audie Pitre, and drummer Jimmy Kyle. While Acid Bath's punishing but trippy, groove-laden sound would prove to be deeply influential, the group's audience was frustratingly small during its existence, and the band called it quits in 1997 after the death of Audie Pitre in an auto accident. After fronting a short-lived group called Daisyhead & the Mooncrickets, Riggs re-emerged on the music scene with Agents of Oblivion, which also included Acid Bath guitarist Mike Sanchez as well as Alex Bergeron on bass, Jeff McCarty on drums, and Chuck Pitre on keyboards.

Agents of Oblivion's sound was as doomstruck as Acid Bath, but the approach was more subdued, showing the influence of traditional hard rock and blues in its slower tempos and smoother melodies. Agents of Oblivion released one album in 2000, but broke up not long after completing a tour to support it. After the collapse of Agents of Oblivion, Riggs formed a new band, Deadboy & the Elephantmen, which sported a stripped-down, blues-based sound and featured Riggs playing guitar as well as singing. The group's first album, 2002's If This Is Hell Then I'm Lucky, was a full-band affair, with Riggs joined by Jason Dupre on guitar, Chris Gautreaux on bass, and Jeff Lecompte on drums, but he pared the group back to a duo for 2005's We Are Night Sky, with Riggs joined by drummer Tess Brunet. In late 2006, Brunet quit the band, and as Riggs was recording Deadboy & the Elephantmen's third album with a rotating crew of musicians, he opted to abandon the group moniker and release the music under the name Dax Riggs. Featuring some of Riggs' most powerful and emotionally incisive music to date, We Sing of Only Blood or Love was released in the summer of 2007. For 2010's Say Goodnight to the World, Riggs recorded in his home studio with Austin, TX locals Charley Siess (drums) and Kevin Fitzsimmons (bass). ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

We will ALWAYS have love for Dax and have just started taking our daughter with us to his shows. My husband started listening to him back in the Acid Bath days, stumbled upon the tape and bought it because he likes the art work on the cover (kudos to John Wayne Gacey and Dr. Kavorkian). I took my oldest daughter when she was 11 to see him live in Austin and he was so humble and kind enough to take a picture with her which was such an awesome experience:) Thanks Dax!!!
Dax is our modern day Elvis! Ask the ladies ;)

My favorite singer in world. I have seen all of dax s shows from acid bath to dax Riggs himself and when he belts out that first note. Your mind says where is that magical sweet soul .been I'll I want is more of that. The blues comes from his soul and dances with our ears. And fills our heart to the top with true spirit to
There is a mention of If This Hell Then I'm Lucky....all you gotta do izzz read. I received a copy for 10$ at a Deadboy show in Hattiesburg MS. and i will never forget how awsome that show was....still listening and it never gets old.
How come there's no mention of his first dead boy album if this is hell
Really amazing song actually discovered it on spot. Radio.
I am so completely in love with Dax Riggs voice! SO THERAPUTIC :)
Where Louisiana music is now... Our hearts, expressed. Yeah, Cher!
needs to put in rotation more, really amazing stuff
Got to see Dax on Oct 28th 2012. Small venue. He always so friendly. He will hang out in the crowd. Sign autographs. And thank you for coming. I love his voice so much. And his attitude and humbleness is genuine.
New album does not seem to be on here.
love dax forever!!!!
genius. check out acid bath too!
Dax has, I would say, the most unique and intriguing voice. Versitile too. Metal, blues. He can belt out a beautifull aria, or rip your head off screaming. Some of the best poetry I've read in the last 15 or so years were written by 1.Dax Riggs 2.Jim Morrison. Nuff said.

hsc2009
Lousiana way cool....
DAXS YOU ARE A PAGEN PRINCE
luv this song! :)

Agents of Oblivion one and only album is mind blowing. Endsmount, Phantom Green, and The song that Crawls are the best in my opinion. It seems like Dax is usually always a head of his time musically.

He is truly a living Picaso of the music world. He is the most creative music artist alive and his voice is a gift from somewhere powerful. His performances are even better sounding than the albums-FLAWL E S S . A MUST SEE.
