I must say I like HIM very much now! But I admit, I was skeptical about the band at first when i heard about them, and i saw there was hype surrounding the band. And I was not going to be one of those people who "jump on the band wagon".......well not until I heard them first. And my girlfriend has some of their albums, and for good reason.......cuz HIM is awesome! I like Razorblade Kiss, Poison Girl, and their cover of Don't Fear the Reaper the most. It just sucks cuz I don't have an album yet, but from what I hear I want Razorblade Romance first!

I like HIM. They're decent, but I don't love them. My friend is obsessed though. At school: "ohhhh, look at that sexy body" (she can be a little shallow at times :P ). I look over to her computer screen and there I see a google image search for "HIM" and no other than Ville starring. She knows they aren't gothic, but if she loves them to bits, more power to her and all you other HIM lovers.

:P

They'll be one of my favorite bands forever... I'm NOT saying that they are the best band in the world, cause they're not, but I'm still emotionally bonded to them.
And they are not gothic (maybe a bit, a long time ago), they are a love metal band and I think it would be reasonable to finally accept this fact.
"Love metal" is not a bad album, but, visually, they really make me sick at the moment... all that fancy stuff is just too much for me.
Has anyone listened their UNPUBLISHED TRACKS (Serpent Ride, Sigilium Diaboli, Borellus...)?! THAT is good stuff. And the first album. I could even call them gothic at the time. Oh, yeah.

Oh yeah. I adore those, especially Borellus- although that one creeped me out on my first listen :p

They've never once claimed to be a gothic band. Ville Valo has stated in interviews that he does like aspects of the gothic culture, but... I don't really see it in their music much.

Angelica: HIM is one of my favorite bands, but I would in no way call them gothic. Soft-core metal, or their self-proclaimed genre of 'Love Metal' is more like it, even for their first album. What do you mean about them making you sick at the moment? I'm not too sure what you mean by that.

I have listened to a few of their unpublished tracks, and they are really awesome, I agree. I wonder where they are from if they are not published and how people got their hands on the songs?

Their new visual image is what makes me sick. I really don't like it, and it all began with that friendship with Bam Margera (well, perhaps somewhat earlier). Ah, and I remember the time when Valo wore black SUITS, and Linde didn't have those dreadlocks...

I have no idea how people got their hands on unpublished tracks, I know I got mine from a friend... along with those cute songs in Finnish that Valo did with the Agents... and that's how I learned to sing in Finnish... :b

Oh, suits you say?!?! Wow, if only I had been introduced to them earlier. The whole Bam thing is getting annoying. I see heartagrams and get all excited only to find that BAM is written on the otherside of the shirt. He just adopted the symbol, as his own, which angers me.I don't really have the oppurtunity to get annoyed by HIM's image, they have yet to really make it in Canada so I never see them in the media. Oh well, at least the music is still great. :)

I'm a huge HIM fan but I know better than to take it too seriously.
It just makes me happy and they are one of my favorite bands and have been for a long time (BEFORE that stupid ass Bam Margera.)
God...I really dislike him.

Heh heh, just to give my two cents, I too seriously dislike Bam Margera. He irritates me, and I find his obsession with HIM a little unnerving. I'm curious now whether any HIM fan does like him...

/div WroteColonI have listened to a few of their unpublished tracks, and they are really awesome, I agree. I wonder where they are from if they are not published and how people got their hands on the songs?

They're swimming around file sharing programs like Kazaa and Soulseek. Guess we'll never know who got hold of them in the first place ???

Well, I think that those American new-born HIM fans like Bam, cause he's promoting HIM the most in the USA. So these fans don't really know much about HIM's earlier period and like what they see now... DARN...
