In the middle of the 90s, and - to be more specific - in 1994, Nicke Anderson was bored from playing only in ENTOMBED and formed HELLACOPTERS together with Dregen, Kenny Hakansson and Robert Eriksson. Their debut album, "Supershitty To The Max" (1996) won the Swedish Grammy Awards and gave the band the boost needed.

First time I became a listener of that band was back in 2004 when they released the "Cream Of The Crap" compilation. HELLACOPTERS, for those who don't know, are into garage Rock retro style we could say. In Scandinavia the band is enjoying more popularity than in the rest of Europe. Because of that I was mostly surprised when this tribute CD fell in my hands, for the simple reason that there are lots of other bands more widely known than HELLACOPTERS that still do not have a tribute release.

The bands which participate in this release should have been retro Rock, bluesy, western sound fans, because there are not major changes in the tracks. The whole CD is wrapped with the Rock sound and in cases such as this one it is better to listen to the original ones as there are no tremendous changes at all, unless if you belong to the really curious ones. Furthermore, if you are interested in knowing this band, it is better to invest in the "Cream Of Crap" 'best of'.
