HIM IN CONCERT:Finnish rockers HIM have been electrifying audiences with their adrenaline-filled brand of "love metal" since the early '90s, and they stand as the first-ever act from Finland to have a certified gold release in the US. Rocking out under their trademark heartagram (a combination of a heart and a pentagram), the band charges through morbidly upbeat rock productions like "Heartkiller" and "Join Me in Death" with a vigor and dramatic flair that always get hearts racing and fists pumping. They've reached the Finnish Top 5 with eight consecutive albums, and fans lucky enough to catch them on tour will have no trouble seeing what all the fuss is about.BACKGROUND SNAPSHOT:HIM formed in Helsinki in 1991 under the leadership of beloved frontman Ville Valo. The band spent several years performing under the moniker His Infernal Majesty, but switched to the acronym in 1997 for the release of their debut album Greatest Love Songs Vol. 666. The album peaked at No. 4 on the Finnish charts, eventually going platinum on the strength of several singles including a popular cover of Chris Isaak's track "Wicked Games". HIM continued their rise in 1999 with their sophomore album Razorblade Romance, an impressive slice of high-octane rock that topped several European charts and kicked off a string of No. 1 albums in their home country. In 2005 they made a splash in the US with the album Dark Light (2005), which reached the Top 20 of the US Billboard 200 and became the first album by a Finnish group to receive gold certification by the RIAA. Since then they've toured the world and earned a reputation as a must-see live act. HIM's 2013 album Tears on Tape was another Top 20 hit in the US, setting big expectations for the band's upcoming North American tour dates.

I have seen HIM before, and they were good. Unfortunately early in their career whether it be acoustics or equipment, their live shows never translated before. I was weary about this show due to the fact their last couple of albums have been hit and miss, but they played basically what could be transformed into their great hits! Everything sounded amazing, just like album versions of the songs. They played for well over an hour and a half and performed their rendition of "Rebel Yell" as an encore.

Outstanding

Great show, great audience with a very positive vibe. The sound is excellent at the HoB and the Foundation Room access is a huge plus and well worth a little extra. The biggest surprise of all was the courtesy and attentiveness of the HoB staff. A class act all around! Motionless In White, the 2nd warm up act, really have their act together and are poised to go places. I enjoyed them almost as much as I enjoyed HIM, who are getting a bit long in the tooth (and wide at the waist ; ).

It was great to see him again

jeffula House of Blues Boston, Boston

Him put on a great show the other night in boston at the house of blues.....the venue is great first of all and i always enjoy going there! The band sounded great...not pefect but very good,the best part was probably one of the best setlist i've seen them do ever.mostly older songs with a few fron the last few albums. The sacrament,poisen girl,fortress of tears--awesome!!!!! Gone with the sin,when love and death embrace and many more....they played close to 19 songs ending with "rebel yell"by billy idol which sounded great too! Catch them if you can on this tour and if you are a fan of the older tunes.
