News & Rumors / Re: First four albums as PICTURE DISCS

Also there a lot of new young and older souls who are falling in love with the band every single day, so new cd's/vinyls must be made...so IMO such releases are not that bad.....




i know what you mean Alex and the point is right, to have albums available for potential fans, but exactly like Cory said - limited picture disc edition - Vinyl of the first 4 albums that the End Records have rights to release is not this thing. We were talking about this release, and releasing limited edition of Vinyl is not to have something available for new fans (those albums are easily available everywhere for the new fans, tho). Its simple as that The End Records they have rights to release the first four albums only (+ ToT ,obviously), they are doing it while they can.

The thing about DL and promoting album when it is released , while its hot is true. The album probably sold out necessary copies (i imagine that half of the HIM fan base bought the album just because its DL, Linde, Mige and Burton - 3/5 of HIM) so they probably didnt have to make a tour to spend money and risking weak tickets selling and half empty venues, so they probably cancelled it because of that. From the book that Kimmo wrote about DL tour after vol2 , how it costed and what Linde had to pay for, its logical.

@KuusiYksiKuusi  i am glad that i drove you nut, you need to get more critical when it comes to this band, loving everything HIM related just because its HIM related is not the reason to approve everything when we know that actually this is bad. We are fans because of different purposes i get it. Someone fell in love with the band because of the music, someone because of a handsome frontman, someone because of this album, someone else on the other album. Its natural. Me personally, i love the first 3 albums the most, i dislike Screamworks and Venus Doom quite much already, its OK. Some other fella prefers Venus Doom and Love Metal over ToT and Dark Light - should i hate him because of that? No. Should i hate all the screaming fangirls at the concerts that are killing the sound to me? Well they are worse than the pain in the ass, but no i dont hate them, they are just excited and emotional and they are taking concerts differently than i take them. Its not the reason to war. If someone has a different opinion or attitude , its not driving me nuts or anything. It does nothing to me. I dont care, its not my concern what others think. I respect that everyone has a different opinion and as far as its not personal against me, i read it, think about it, even if it doesnt collide with my opinion i just take it. If i drove myself nuts because of everything i read on the internet - i would be pissed off every second and i would hate everyone.
When the label is making the money on the same records every year, bringing NOTHING new, just picture disc .... its just milking and making money on HIM..... its the business, not the music as it should be. I am against that. I am sure Ville is not happy with that ripping off as well
They are still their label, altough the band is over. They have rights to the first 4 albums and Tears on Tape. They could ask the band for their Live materials from the 2005-2017 - the could ask for a permission to release music that has Warner rights to in the music videos to DL, VD, SW - the could compile the DVD - Love Metal archives vol. 2 - everyone would be happy, new fans, old fans, new release, something never seen before footage, backstage extras - yeah that would be something AMAZING. If there was a will - it could be reality and we could be pre-ordering great Christmas gifts for ourselves.

You two guys definitely aren't wrong in theory. At the risk of sounding like a bitter cynic, though, I just don't think releasing limited edition online event only vinyl is the best way to make those albums readily known and available to new fans.

Its better to release something different then just make more copies of an old album who probably running out of copies in the stores. Also there a lot of new young and older souls who are falling in love with the band every single day, so new cd's/vinyls must be made...so IMO such releases are not that bad.....

For such a small project as DL its crucial to make the tour/promote closer to the release date... so if you missed that time its better just to start working on the new stuff :P

THANK YOU! All these fucking bitter cynics drive me nuts.

At this point, no store ships outside the US, so it's really easy to decide whether to buy these or not. :P

unnecessary and pointless release of the same shit that has been released ages ago , re-issued years ago and now again....well HIM fans and collectors are buying anything that has heartagram or HIM on it, so its a good idea to print out some LPs with pictures on it. They are milking it while they can. Poor label, they are killing it completely. HIM became repetitive not only when it comes to the gigs and the setlists, but also with the releases..... pointless greatest hits release of XX Two decades.... what was the point of this crap? SWRMXS or what was this crap titled - what was the point? If they had a contract with the Warner for some certain number of releases, they could have fucking picked up Venus Doom and release the Vinyl of it.....

lets ask the real question - Why Daniel Lioneye cancelled the tour last year and WHY there is no replacement for the cancelled dates?? HIM is taking no effort right now, they are not practicing, DL had a nice room in August, September to make the tour to warm up before HIM Farewell tour
Do you guys understand that they are quite packed with the dates, the travelling, performing every night almost... the guys will be tired as fuck in the end of the North American tour. In December the gigs will be a lot shorter as they will be just tired, they will make standard greatest hits setlist, 90 minutes and the mic drop, hand wave and over
