~~~~HIM's New CD "Screamworks: Love In Theory And Practice" is out now!!~~~~~~
A little H I M Biography-
HIM is a band from Finland formed in 1991 by vocalist Ville Valo, guitarist Mikko Lindström, and bassist Mikko Paananen. They have released 5 full length albums to date. The band was originally called His Infernal Majesty, but they soon changed this to simply HIM. As of 2006, they are the first and only Finnish rock band to sell Gold in the United States.
HIM started out as a cover band, covering songs of artists such as KISS, Type O Negative, Danzig, Billy Idol, Black Sabbath and Depeche Mode. After many lineup changes and a hiatus from 1991 to 1995 caused by the members' military services, the band now has only 3 co-founding (original) members plus keyboardist Jani "Burton" Puurtinen and drummer Mika "Gas" Karppinen.
The Heartagram (as you see below) is the name of a trademarked symbol of HIM. It is a cross between a heart and an inverted pentagram. Valo created the Heartagram himself the day after his 20th birthday. The Heartagram has been falsely associated with satanism, leading some to believe HIM is satanic. Valo has said that "The Heartagram stands for HIM as a band, as an entity, and for 'love metal' in general."
