Legends of Bigfoot in North America stretch from coast to coast. Finally there is confirmation of Bigfoot, but it comes from England. Yes England and in fact a little town called Wigan is where this Bigfoot calls home. No I am not talking about the hairy biped that you may be thinking but a newly formed hard rock band. They call themselves Bigfoot and are a new up and coming band from England. Bigfoot was formed in 2014 and have toured continually throughout the UK and ready to share their story and music with the rest of the world. After two successful EPs they are now releasing their debut self-titled full-length album, Bigfoot.
Right out of the box it is easy to hear that these guys don’t draw from any one influence. They draw from quite a few. Their sound is very guitar driven and Sam Millar and Mick McCullagh are the pick wizards that bring that bring that sound to the forefront of every song. Bigfoot starts right off with a badass song called “Karma.” It has fast beat and strong vocals provided by Antony Ellis. “Karma” has great lyrics attached to it also:
“Go ahead and make my day
Keep the fire coming
We can put my superstition to test
It will all just come together
And will see who walks away with regrets
You say that Life’s a bitch
Well you can blame yourself”
“The Fear” is another solid track. It has the sound of a later Deep Purple track. “Forever Alone” is one of the power ballads on the album. It is more power than ballad though. The guitar starts acoustic and but then switches to electric and gives it that 80’s sound. The rest of Bigfoot is full of guitar heavy tracks fast and slow.
If you are looking for an album with a good hard rock sound and that 80’s groove then Bigfoot is not only the band for you but also the album for you. These guys may not have the notoriety that Sasquatch does here in North America but if they keep up the good work we may have quite a few more Bigfoot sittings here in the United States via of a Bigfoot tour. Pick this album up, you wont be disappointed. Bigfoot’s debut self-titled album Bigfoot will be released October 13, 2017 through Frontiers Music s.r.l.
