HIM anyone?

Post by EffieCollins on Mon Nov 09, 2009 3:44 pm

Any of you guys like the Finnish band, HIM? Love those gys. I'd jump Ville Valo's bones in half a heartbeat. He's just so sexy!

Let's see... how about Amanda Palmer?

The Rasmus?

Anyone? Anyone?

(Buler... Buler...)

HIM are a bit of a guilty pleasure, I must admit. I got in to them when I was about 14 and will always have a soft spot for Love Metal. They're not a bad band overall though, they have some really great stuff - I really enjoyed Venus Doom when it came out for instance. It is basically 14 year goth girl music, mind. Still, when the mood takes you...

I'm a big Amanda Palmer fan. I prefer her stuff in the Dresden Dolls, who are an absolutely incredible band, but her solo record was great. I actually went to see her live in February, it was an amazing gig. Gutted I never got to see the Dolls live though.

Love this band. Kind of annoyed how they got so popular and acquired that annoying fanbase, though. I mean, I began listening to them in Korea. I picked up Razorblad Romance and LOVED it. Then I bought the previous album, Greatest Lovesongs Vol. 666. Again, loved it. Bought the next album, Deep Shadows and Brilliant Highlights, when it came out. Another great album. And still, no one knew the band.

The Bam Margera mentions that HIM is his favorite band and...well, you saw what happened. I mean, HIM didn't even have a record available in the US, but you could buy a HIM skateboard at Hot Topic! It was ridiculous. Well, there was the very rare US release of Razorblade Romance—I think only 1,000 copies were pressed—under the name HER. I guess someone owned the rights to the name HIM.

But hell, all the money generated from sales of shirts and stickers and hats and whatnot was enough to get them or a label to buy that right.

Either way, awesome band, lame fanbase. Generally speaking, of course.

I love DRESDEN DOLLS


THE RASMUS are mediocre.

I tend to like their older albums myself, although Venus Doom is a great album too. I wouldn't classify them as goth girl music, though. If you actually read the lyrics there are some great metaphorical verses. I heard of them before I did Bam Margera. I actually heard Valo with another band first, Apocolyptica (That one song was all he did with them I think, but it was enough to hook me). I now have a thing for his voice that won't quit. Dunno why. When they got to be more mainstream, around the time they made Dark Light, they lost the darker edge to their music. It seems like they got it back with Venus Doom, though. Smile

Finnish bands are just coming up in every conversation today!

I'm not familiar with HIM. I'm going to go scout them out after I read another few slush pieces.

Another Finnish band...MALICE IN WONDERLAND...a little too froofy for my tastes but they flirt with the styles I like.....

I believe, Ken wants to make sweet manlove to their singer....

But I didn't do anything. In fact, I will attempt to rectify this topic with some Finnish goth n' roll.

I never cared for 69 EYES...then Toho (over at HOM) told me they used to be straight sleazy glam...I found 2 of their early cds today and nabbed them...they rock!!

Yeah, from what I've heard of their most recent album, it's a nice middle ground between their goth stuff and their glam shenanigans. I'll have to pick it up. The only one of theirs I currently own is Blessed Be, most of which is awesome goth rock, but there are a couple of terrible tracks on it.

The 69 Eyes "Motor City Resurrection" (1994) is a stone cold sleaze classic. 70's Detroit garage sleaze dragged through the more scuzzier fringe elements of the 80's El Lay "Glam Scene".

I have two of their albums. A friend of mine strongly recommended I try them out. They aren't a favorite of mine, but they have some really cool songs.
