A few days ago, a very sad news came to my attention. My favourite band – HIM – announced their farewell tour for 2017! This came as a complete shock, but also kind of expected. The truth is, the band’s two last albums took a very long time to release (average of three years) and they marked a breaking point with the band’s musical identity. It was just not the same anymore. The dark, melancholic, melodic and heavy essence of HIM was missing. Nonetheless, I will always cherish the wonderful moments I’ve shared with this band for the past 10 years and will continue to do so.
On that note, I’d like to share my personal message to the band with you:
“I’m devastated, you have played such a major part in my life and still do. You give me strength, hope and drive. “You’re gone with the sin my baby, and beautiful you are”. For me, you are eternal. I love you Ville, thank you for making my life one full Heartagram. See you one last time in Luxembourg. I love you.”
