Review:Hellax Resolution review
Hellax : the story
HELLAX original name was ELAX ( anagram of ALEX for Alexandra)
After discussions with the rock guys from the team and because the machine was so versatile ( from smoothy to punchy) ,we decided to add a funny devil on the front plate.
The joke continued later with the 666 label on the pannel.
Just before launching the first series, Christophe B ( we don’t want to expose him!) said that we have missed another joke : ELAX should be HELLax.
Please, don’t see more than this in the machine name !
