I was gone for a day and now that i've checked the post i have no idea what everyone is talking about.

Lol that happens.  You leave and we all start talking about semen.

Dan, you know of a band called Leogun?

No i don't haha are we mixing HIM song titles with Leogun titles?

Haha no. But they are from London and walked into a restaurant I was at last night. They were playing a show at a near by bar. I didn't see their show but looked them up later and they sounded pretty good.

YleX report from of Tears On Tape listening party at Finnvox on March 22nd.

Entering into the building and walking past dozens of gold/platinum records hanged against the wall. HIM's manager Seppo Vesterinen runs busy in corridors with cell phone to his ear with the band (with the exception of Ville) sitting on Finnvox famous sofas. Mini fridge is full with beer, sidukkaa, spirits, sparkling wine and vitamin water in all colors. The first to arrive journalists are invited to fill glasses and enjoy the snacks.
Three moments later Ville arrives and everyone are ushered to Finnvox spacious B-studio.

"No one is daring to sit in the front row. Hey, where's the fatman?", Ville with his eyes searches the band's drummer Gas.

Gas keeps calling out from the back row with some friends. Valo heads with the group over to the front row. Universal's representatives praised Tears On Tape album listening can begin.

"Sk??l and kikkeliskokkelis!", shouts HIM-singer of their new album early before listening starts and walks away from the desk. "I've heard the album a few times". Valo jokes staring the music with rising red cheeks.

The record is really impossible to give one criticism of listening. Yes, it sounds like HIM; you can hear doom, Black Sabbath, Type O Negative, a bit of 70's glam, a little tiny bit of psychedelia and also Dingoa. Melodic, atmospheric and familiar. Many of the songs start with a very different tone than the end, a song may initially sound like a children's nursery rhymes and end with heavy-doom-cadence. Atmosphere is buzzing, some listeners entered their own worlds, as many people have their eyes closed.

"My favorite songs are When Love Starts to Die and Into the Night. They spring from the Millennium pre tags. This reminds me of our first meeting. I remember very well when their first album came out, and the band has been to me very relevant. A special feature is the fact that I have never interviewed Ville Valo, even though almost all other domestic artists I had. It's a bit like me as editor of Mount Everest", Hintikka jokes.

Many on the spot describe the album as difficult to digest(?) after the first hearing.

"The disc is made with a heavy hand and does not disappoint anyone. Yes, I liked it very much, it made me a bit confused, which is only a good thing. It was ultimate HIM, but a step in a new direction was taken. It requires to be listened again", New Mountain says.

Difficult for yourself to keep the opening a good thing.
"I've never heard an album, which would have sounded fantastic after the first listening. It will have to be listened to a few times, remember what it is about. However, there is a lot of information, words, melodies and harmony. I try to excuse myself desperately here", Valo chuckles.

Journalists and critics' attitude towards the album can also be affected by many factors.
"It's Friday, the sun is shining, there's a little chill in the air. Yes, it all seems good. In fact I want to hear for myself the important orchestras to music alone. It is important for being able to close your eyes and go into the world of music. This is most extraordinary thing that we are together in the same space, a bit like the church", Valo laughs.

I thought I could do it by myself this time, but I failed. If you would like to try, I'd definitely appreciate it!

The logo is actually available on this site as the logo that shows a new post. It's in black, though, and I'm needing it in white.

Just give it up man. It's never coming out. I mean, I've got my copy that Seppo personally sent me, along with a lock of Mige's chin hair.

Jokes aside, the official site is still stuck on the same password thing. Something's probably going to happen on friday in 2 weeks, seeing as it's the 5th.

The Finnish single release is supposed to be the 5th, but I haven't seen anywhere that a physical CD is available.

That's true. There probably isn't one. We'll see. I was just saying about the site; something should happen by then.
