- If you have a chance, you should definitely check H.I.M. out

What's Good About It?

Remember when Billy's chocolate bar fell into Sally's peanut butter? Get you're mind out of the gutter, it's an old Reese's commercial. H.I.M.'s combination of glam and goth are a similar sweet treat. H.I.M. may brandish their music as "love metal," but their not talking about healthy relationships. "Your Sweet Six Six Six" is about an attraction with the spawn of Satan that our singer cannot turn away from. Ville's vocals are seductive and somewhat creepy.

The bass line driven hook of "Poison Girl" delves into the seductive powers of a woman's kiss. If you can't see where these relationships are going yet, you will on "Join Me In Death." Ville transforms into a sinister monster vocally, as the group adds eerie piano to their dark rhythms. My favorite track is a pumped up reworking of the Chris Isaac classic "Wicked Game." You don't know the song? I'll bet you remember the black and white video with the half naked brunette running down the beach. This song about a painful love fits the group's style to a tee. This time around it's darker and heavier.

"Razorblade Kiss" has a rock radio feel to it. It's loaded with razor sharp riffs, a melodic chorus, and a silvery solo section. "Death is in Love With Us" has a more breakneck rhythm to it and we find Ville a little more cocksure in his vocal delivery. How does one end a tortured relationship? "Sigillum Diaboli" answers that question. This track finds the group mixing it up with a little punk rock flow. If you can call it a love ballad, "One Last Time" is an acoustic track with distant, melancholy vocals, which propositions a final affair before these lovers go their separate ways.

Anything Bad?

Could they print the lyrics any smaller?!

Bottom Line

H.I.M.'s combination of deep, seductive, melodic vocals and dark gothic rhythms are a unique twist in the rock genre. Their guitar tone is simply awesome. It's the main reason I liked this CD so much. I can forgive Ville for his brief falsettos. They seem to fit the sinister, tortured love theme he's creating.

- The TRUE definition of Gothic Music

As you may or may not know, the term "gothic" was born from the literary and artistic Romantic movement in the 19th Century. So naturally, when one thinks about Gothic music, one also should find the romantic element as well.

Razorblade Romance is genuinely Gothic. HIM mixes the elements of tragedy and romance as well as Shakespeare in Romeo and Juliet, the two intertwined until the end. Ville Valo's deep lethargic voice sends the words straight to the heart while a guitar mimics the lyric's sentiment with its riffs.

I bought this album a month ago after hearing "Gone with the Sin" on the radio. Since then, Razorblade Romance has remained on the top of my "Most Played" list and has led me to buy all of HIM's previous albums.

For those of you who think that Marilyn Manson and NIN are the definition of "gothic," LISTEN UP! Lend an ear to this Finnish band and I promise that you won't be disappointed. For those of you who are suckers for romance and deep voices (myself included) this should DEFINATELY be on your "To Buy" list! :)

PS: To learn more about this awesome band, go to their web site at ...!! :)

- Decadent... like rock used to be

It is always something when a band works, especially where its band members have diffrent music taste can actually combine and create something unique.

The "goths" want dark, vampire-esotera and they want it now. The "metalheads" want screeching vocals and mechanistic, precision drumming and now. And the "glam rockers" want thier gutter elegance idols and trashy glamour now. The rest of us without the pretentious kiddy lable can do all of that and put each scene in a blender and be happy.

This all afforded HIM a great opportunity to smash some walls, unfortunately to the dismay of too many scenesters that cannot see beyond thier noses and evolve thier taste.

Then you end up in reality and without scenester polotics with HIM... HIM have a simple sound and driving rythems. They have tastes of glam/metal/dirgish-goth and they do this sound with such a pop hook catchyness its infectious.

Ville Valo sings with such vocal flair its like watching David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Stephen Tyler, Mick Jagger strut the stage with real rock and roll style.

If you like HIM at all chances are they will grow on you as time goes on. New crossing of music styles can be like tasting a new wine... you've never tasted anything like it and then you realize thats quite possibly the reason you want another taste of it.

- I just love this group!

Wow! ... and I thought that Greatest Lovesongs was excellent.... this is even better! The songs just make you drift off into another world, reality seems to disappear! There are more of the melodic ballards found in their first album, slightly less heavy and not so "noisy", but still sung by Valo's amazingly deep "Type O Negative - esque" voice. Don't hesitate to buy this, you won't regret it, I rate it as the best album I have bought in the last 5 years..... easily!

- fourty-one plus sixty-six point six equals our loss

Though it was originally released on January 24, 2000 in Europe, "Razorblade Romance" was recently re-released in the United States on October 28, 2003. Many people heard about HIM (which is short for His Infernal Majesty, taken from "The Satanic Bible" by Anton LaVey) through Bam Margera. His skateboards, his clothing, and even his official website have the HIM heartagram all over them. Not to mention, [lead singer] Ville Valo was briefly shown on a recent episode of MTV's Viva La Bam and they provide all of the music for Bam's independent film, "Haggard". I just hope all of the exposure doesn't make them some big mainstream bands that only 'posers' listen to. Don't get me wrong, I hope they are successful, but I would hate to see them become on of those 'sell-out' band. HIM was known as HER in America for a while because there was another band by the name of HIM

This CD is great for many people: metalheads will love them for their musical talents, goths will like them for their lyrics about death and despair; skaters/jackasses who are obsessed with Bam Margera will listen to them because he does, soft rockers will enjoy Valo's soothing voice, and even emo kids can cry to their lyrics about love. So no matter who you are, buy this CD and you will not regret it. They have their own sound but they somewhat sounds like a bastard child of Type O Negative and Marilyn Manson mixed with with a hint of Black Sabbath. That may not sound that appealing to some, but the band sounds excellent.
