The full Russian version of Hellspin's name would translate as "Hellish Revolution." Band members sometimes joke about the ways in which local existence tends to frustrate any private fantasies of freedom. Chance plays a greater role than personal wishes and/or planning. "Our band came together on the wide-open expanses of [modern] Moscow thanks [only] to the effort of two provincial jerks." A little detective work reveals that those same provincial locations are Perm and Kirov. "The group's first rehearsal occurred merely by chance... Our guitarist didn't turn up. After the first few chords, though, it was clear that we didn't even need him. What we did need was a female vocalist." Eventually that missing, yet vital colleague would be found: Lyudmila Shilova.

Together with Yura Teterev and Pavel Rusakov, Shilova would come to produce what Hellspin calls "minimalist hard rock. It's a dalliance with both punk and stoner styles." The band has just announced a second album that invokes the Devil, nuclear war, a "chorus of the Dead," and concentration camps in the first few minutes. That general air of disaster always trickles down to daily life. Shilova jokes that she gets love letters from fans in provincial towns who "cannot live" without her - yet they also can't be bothered to buy a train ticket to Moscow. One young and potential groupie wrote to her, declaring his love. Shilova answered, presumably in jest, that she was high on heroin. He never responded.

Группа образовалась 23 февраля 2012 года стараниями двух провинциальных козлов на просторах города Москвы. Первая репетиция была крайне спонтанна. За час до репетиции 23 февраля была забронирована точка, но гитарист не смог подойти. После первых аккордов стало ясно, что он и не нужен, а нужна дама вокалистка. Которая была найдена путем долгих стараний и прослушиваний.

Музыкальная же составляющая представляет собой минималистичный хард рок с заигрыванием с панком и стоунером. Что и понятно если посмотреть на предыдущие проекты участников: Русак играл в ван мен бенде имени себя Low Desert Rusak и различных кажуальствах с Павлом Мятным (Dermonteens, PoorPoor, Kazeko Fucking Sons), Тетерев играл в таких бандах как Noob Saibot, The Powlers, Заряд Ненависти, Люся доминировала в коллективе Toy Toy, DT ft WIN и ряде других проектов. Ясно, что если все это смешать получается именно Адское Вращение - hellspin.
