Swedish high energy rock ‘n’ roll legends THE HELLACOPTERS have released a documentary called “Let’s Talk Grande Rock Revisited” in which they share interesting background information on the double album Grande Rock Revisited that’s out today via Nuclear Blast Records!
The insightful clip directed by Emil Klinta shows original members Nicke, Robert, Boba and Dregen talk about the idea behind the revisited version of their classic record Grande Rock from 1999, and why they decided to release this new version as a double album.
Hailed by many The Hellacopters fans as one of the band’s best albums, Grande Rock hasn’t been available to purchase on vinyl for over 20 years. This new edition of Grande Rockis available as 2LP, 2CD and digital edition all of which contain both the remastered original album as well as a revisited and remixed version with additional guitars by Dregen, plus additional percussion and piano and new backing vocal tracks. Just like the original release back in 1999, the vinyl edition exclusively features the Venom cover ‘Angel Dust‘ as a bonus track.

Swedish action rock legends THE HELLACOPTERS have announced the release date for the long overdue physical re-issue of their classic album Grande Rock from 1999, which hasn’t been available to purchase on vinyl for over 20 years. This new edition of Grande Rock will be released on February 16th, 2024, as a 2LP, 2CD and digital edition all of which contain both the remastered original album as well as a revisited and remixed version with additional guitars by Dregen, plus additional percussion and piano and new backing vocal tracks. Just like the original release back in 1999, the vinyl edition exclusively features the Venom cover ‘Angel Dust‘ as a bonus track.
On February 16th, 2024 they will now release not one, but two stunning versions of their classic Grande Rock album. Entitled Grande Rock Revisited it has been remastered by Henke Jonsson, and furthermore has been completely remixed by Michael Ilbert at Hansa Studios, Berlin using the original multi-track tapes and reanimated with a whole lot of additional layers of rock! The result showcases how the record could have sounded in a parallel universe with Dregen being in the band at the time, and with a more balanced mix, something the band had been pondering about for quite a while.
“We all love loud guitars”, Nicke explains, “but not at the expense of drums and bass, which is pretty much the gist of the original mix. It’s ALL guitars”. So whether you do not want to spend way over 100 Euro for one of the rare original LPs or are excited to hear a revamped, re-rocked new mix of Grande Rock, Grande Rock Revisited gives you both plus a double-album-cover design by singer/guitarist Nicke added as visual treat on top. THE HELLACOPTERS make Rock Grande again!
