HIM Razorblade Romance on LP

Remastered Standard Vinyl Edition

Also Available on Deluxe Vinyl with 8 Unreleased Bonus Tracks

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).

"By the time HIM released Razorblade Romance in 1999, its fans were well-versed in the band’s oeuvre, as well as its lyrical fascination with love and death. Its first official full-length album, 1997’s gothic-kissed Greatest Love Songs: Vol. 666, focused on the agony of pining after the object of one’s desire, a person whom Valo frequently beckoned to join his side. The tightly intertwined themes of amour and mortality remains strong on Razorblade Romance. But instead of longing for affection, the lyrics also detail the unexpected results of capturing someone’s heart: The union that finally occurs doesn’t live up to the expectations of countless lovelorn fantasies, and being emotionally abandoned by the person who’s lying in your arms perpetuates another cycle of mortal pain." - Christa Titus, Billboard

The standard edition of HIM’s hit second album, Razorblade Romance, has been remastered and is presented on 140 gram vinyl, marking the first time it is appearing on the format. The album is also available as a deluxe gatefold colored 2LP-set with eight unreleased bonus tracks, two full artwork record sleeves, exclusive liner notes and digital download card.

"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
