Label: Sire/Warner Bros.
From the outset, HIM's 2007 offering of “love metal,” as they call it, rumbles and trudges with no small amount of classic doom metal thud (think both early and late My Dying Bride), so purists may not turn their nose up here. The difference between HIM and their many forebears is that no one has delivered such a a full package of melody, metal and slight amounts of gloom to the masses in years, or really ever, by the simple fact that they represent actual modern goth, a nearly lost art these days. Another thing working in HIM's favor is that their gloom is not melodramatic, it's way darker.
