HIM Love Metal: Deluxe on Limited Edition Colored 2LP + Download

Remastered with 8 Unreleased Bonus Tracks

Also Available on Standard Vinyl 

Alternative rock phenomenon HIM have been a band for 23 years, releasing 8 studio albums to date, of which their fifth album Dark Light was certified gold by the RIAA, making them the first Finnish band to have a gold album in the United States. They have had five of their studio albums verified platinum in Finland with Razorblade Romance being certified double platinum in Finland and platinum in Germany. Now The End Records will be offering remastered vinyl reissues of the band's trailblazing early catalog in standard and deluxe configurations including Greatest Love Songs Vol. 666 (1997), Razorblade Romance (1999), Deep Shadows and Brilliant Highlights (2001) and Love Metal (2003).

"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

The deluxe edition of HIM’s fourth album, Love Metal, has been remastered and is presented as a colored 2LP-set with eight unreleased bonus tracks. Packaged in a limited edition gatefold jacket with two full artwork record sleeves, exclusive liner notes and digital download card. Also available on standard 140 gram vinyl.

"We feel truly blessed to have our sonic offspring of yore being given a new lease of life in the US by The End Records, the home for many of our aural idols, both old and new. For the past months, the infamous Love Metal archives have been extensively scoured by us for rare, exclusive and downright scary musical nuggets for an experience in Finnish melancholy like no other, so please consider yourself warned...” – Ville Valo, lead vocalist of HIM
