  • HIM - Love Metal (Re-Mastered)

  • Love Metal (Re-Mastered)

    "If it’s possible to pick a “definitive” HIM album, Love Metal would certainly qualify. Recorded in the autumn of 2002 at Helsinki’s Finnvox studios with producer/engineer Hiili Hiilesmaa behind the board, the album plays firmly to the band’s strengths. Goth-flavored atmospherics? Meaty riffs? Expertly-crafted arrangements? Instantly-catchy choruses? Operatic despair? It’s all here, most notably on the album’s three classic singles: “Buried Alive By Love,” which opens the proceedings with a roar, and proceeds to ratchet up the intensity from there, and “The Funeral of Hearts” and “The Sacrament,” both of which beautifully pair Ville’s lovelorn baritone with the band’s innate ability to switch gears from delicate to muscular with the flick of a cigarette ash."Dan Epstein
