The sweet Soundwave love keeps on coming with the Scandanavian Bam Margera favourites letting us in for some off the side glory.
The purveyors of ‘Love Metal’ and masters of dark atmospheric music, HIM, re-defined the gothic rock/metal movement and no one comes close to their heavy, ethereal sounds. Driven by lyrics that spin tales of fatalistic love and depression, it’s perpetually heartsick frontman Ville Valo’s vampiric crooning that ultimately gives the band its fangs.
After spreading their gothic wings over the masses it was the follow up to the platinum selling ‘Dark Light’, ‘Venus Doom’ that saw HIM rocking with fury with Ville’s stunning vocals and lyrical poetry moving from raging wail to deep baritone with consummate ease. “With every album that he writes HIM mainman Ville Valo gets closer to his dream fusion of Metallica, Depeche Mode and Ozzy, while still remembering to add some distinctly gothic beauty.” – Uncut
