Limited Digipak Edition!
Founded in the Finnish capital some 25 years ago, The 69 Eyes spawned a total of ten full-length records and an additional selection of live, best-of and re-mastered albums. With the release of their tenth and most current studio encounter 'X' in 2012, vocalist and frontman Jyrki69 observes the bands' resemblance with one certain masked superhero: "I just saw 'The Dark Knight Rises" and realized that The 69 Eyes is like Batman: we always rise and return - our only mission being to save Gotham City and serve its people. Everybody else is gone, nobody does it better & someone's got to do it. So, sunglasses on and here we go again: the Helsinki Vampires are back!'
Looking back on such a vast legacy, The 69 Eyes have always managed to stay alive as a band, reinventing their distinct blend of Goth'n'Roll and keeping the same line-up ever since 1992, when Jussi69 replaced original drummer Lotto. The second peak of the Goth era in the late 90s/early 2000s saw the five-piece with some of its most acclaimed longplayers, 'Wasting The Dawn' (1999), 'Blessed Be' (2000) and 'Paris Kills' (2002).
'The Best Of Helsinki Vampires', a full best-of collection, spanning a quarter of a century of band history!
