THE HELLACOPTERS Reveal Eyes Of Oblivion Album Details; Title Track Music Video Streaming


High-energy Swedish rock and roll band The Hellacopters will release their eighth studio album, Eyes Of Oblivion, on April 1. Produced by Nicke Andersson & Chips Kisbye (who have overseen all Hellacopters albums since High Visibility in 2000), this will be the band’s first album since releasing their temporary farewell record, Head Off, in 2008.

Today, The Hellacopters share the album’s second single, its highly addictive title track, “Eyes Of Oblivion”. Watch the music video below.

Nicke Andersson (vocals & guitars) commented: “The album is 10 songs long and while it’s obviously not easy to be objective at all, I think musically it sums up everything we’ve been discussing from the start in 1994 until now. the songs date back 10 years or more, and some were written more recently. It’s rock and roll played with a lot of energy, so for lack of a better term, I say High Energy Rock And Roll. You could say it sounds like The Beatles meet Judas Priest or Lynyrd Skynyrd meets the Ramones but the best way to describe this album is that it sounds like Hellacopters today.”

The Hellacopters were formed in 1994 by Nicke Andersson (vocals and guitar), Dregen (guitar), Kenny Håkansson (bass) and Robert Eriksson (drums). By this time Andersson was well known in the metal scene for his work in the famous Swedish death metal band Entombed and Dregen had built a reputation as the co-founder and guitarist of his main band Backyard Babies.

Along with The Hives and Backyard Babies, The Hellacopters are considered one of the most important and influential Swedish rock bands of the 1990s and 2000s – they achieved two Gold certifications, won the Swedish Grammy and a Kerrang! awards, have amassed 100 million streams to date and have supported and toured with the likes of The Rolling Stones, Kiss, Black Sabbath, ZZ Top and the Foo Fighters. They have released seven albums, ranging from fuzzed & supercharged garage punk to Supershitty To The Max! (1996) & Payin’ The Dues (1997) to perfectly crafted, soulful high energy rock’n’roll with a strong vintage vibe on subsequent albums, Grande Rock (1999), High Visibility (2000), By The Grace Of God (2002) and Rock & Roll is Dead (2005). A cover compilation titled “Head Off” was released in 2008 and marked the band’s final album before eventually disbanding. Additionally, The Hellacopters have released nearly four dozen singles, splits, and EPs to date, most of which have received the limited 7-inch or 10-inch vinyl treatment that makes them a dream come true. a vinyl collector…or the worst nightmare.

The Hellacopters reunited in 2016 to play a few gigs on the 20th anniversary of their debut album, and have since proven themselves an unstoppable force, performing at Sweden Rock Festival, Psycho Las Vegas, Download, Hellfest, Roskilde, Ilosaarirock , among others. In October 2021 they announced that they had signed a deal with Nuclear Blast Records and that a new album would be in the works for spring 2022.
