H.I.M. Biography

Forming in Finland in the midst of 1995, H. I. M.
(His Infernal Majesty) portrays a true quest for the reinvention
of goth rock. Setting as their main artistic ambition the creation
of songs in the similar path of bands such as Sisters of Mercy
and the Mission U. K. , H. I. M. uses a distinct compound of
scowling melodies and mystical love stories´inspired lyrics to
mark their musical ground. Vocalist and songwriter Ville Hermani
Vallo was the band´s founding member, alongside MigéAmour
(bass), Lily Lazer (guitar), Gas Lipstick (drums), and Zoltan
Pluto (keyboards). The EP 666 Ways to Love, the group´s first
recording, showed up in late 1996, attaining considerable praise
within the Scandinavian market. One year later, Greatest Love
Songs, Vol. 666 solidified their cult status throughout the
region and celebrated the band´s cover of´Wicked Game,´a Chris
Isaak original. It was at that time that the group gained a
rising fan base all across Europe, entering an enduring and
extensive touring season to even more wide-ranging acclaim.
Three years later, Razorblade Romance, H. I. M. ´s second album,
hit record stores, again achieving substantial results and
strengthening their indubitable recognition. With production
credits featuring John Fryer, who previously worked with crews
like White Zombie and Nine Inch Nails, the record substantiated
the squad´s better acclaim all across Europe. H. I. M. then
suffered its first lineup change when Pluto left, later being
replaced by Emerson Burton.
