The very special Hellsongs flower picker sound actually only really unfolds with the help of a symphony orchestra. Hellsongs were lucky to be supported by members of the local orchestra at a concert in their hometown of Gothenburg. So "Long Live Lounge" became a symphony hippie dream. It might have sounded like this if bands like Metallica, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Alice Cooper or Iron Maiden had come to Woodstock with a different musical attitude. Love In Metal or Metal In Love, whereby of course all metallic basic tendencies were clearly defused. This leads to the fact that actually hardrocking classics like "War Pigs", "Sin City", "Schools Out", "Seek And Destroy" and "Run To The Hills" experience a complete change of direction: first on the regular Hellsongs records, as folk version and now in a dream of hippiesker lounge music. But beware: once you have fallen under the spell of the charm of these variants, you will prefer them, at least occasionally, to the originals.
