PostSubject: HIM, the band from Finland   Fri 31 Oct 2008 - 5:12

HIM is a rock band from Finland formed in 1991 by vocalist Ville Valo, guitarist Mikko Lindström, and bassist Mikko Paananen. They have released six full length albums to date. As of 2008, they are the first and only Finnish band to have an album certified a "gold record" in the United States.
Witches and Other Night Fears was the first record the band ever made. It was a demo tape made in 1992, and for a reason unknown, they decided to not release the demo. The only known copy resides with frontman Ville Valo.

The band was originally called His Infernal Majesty, but later changed their name after being associated with Satanic Rituals. In addition, "His Infernal Majesty" was too lengthy to pronounce in their native Finnish language so they shortened it to H.I.M. 666 Ways to Love: Prologue was released in 1996 solely in Finland, and only 1,000 copies of this album were sold.

HIM's genre is debated in some circles; their musical style is often referred to as "love metal" by Valo and by the group's fans. Ville Valo has stated that the band started as a "Black Sabbath tribute band of sorts". Valo stated in an interview on the Love Metal Archives Vol. I DVD, that he was fed up with journalists and interviewers asking him (Valo), and the rest of the band what the genre of HIM was. He said in answer to that question, they created the genre entitled "love metal" (which was also the name of their 2003 album.) Critics, incorrectly or not, frequently refer to them as alternative rock, gothic metal, or gothic rock. However, their musical style varies between albums and songs.

Current Members:

Mikko Lindström, aka "Linde"
Mikko Paananen, aka "Mige"
