New album out in 2016?
« on: July 16, 2015, 07:20:23 AM »
The word around the web is the new album will be out by December 6, 2016. If it's true, we have to face another year of waiting. Can anyone confirm or deny?

Ville said this like year ago, that the new album will be released on the 6th of December , 2016.
But its a bullshit to tell 2 and a half years before that it will be release on this exact day.... Ville seemed like he just said that with no serious meaning. There were other several rumors that they will work on the new album this fall and they will release it in the first half of 2016

we need to wait

Heh, he probably just said it because he liked the date, might as well release in June '16 already xD
The infotext for the gig in Leipzig still states that they will finish the work on their upcoming studio album this year. They may or may not. It's not exactly an offical source.

So, yeah, we'll have to wait. Is it likely they'll make a comment on it during one of their shows?

Well, he didn't say it will be 6/12/16 exactly, but at the latest. He also mentioned something about new songs being hymn-like and good for church burning. ;D But even if it didn't sound ridiculous, I wouldn't get attached to what he says - so many times in the past he announced new albums to be something they turned out not being.

I think new album will be release as spring 2016.

Come on, the new songs must be written for now with all the band off and they just had 3 dates for october, that doesn't mean anything.

My view:
September -- december. Recording, mixing.
Helldone. A new song.
February. Single.
March -- April. New album.

With Kosmo I feel like the band is ready for some ass kicking and want some energy back.

To bad they weren't doing what disturbed recently did and recorded the whole album in secret during the break
Today tomorrow seems so far away and the wait in vain

Normally I like stuff on the heavy side but given that my life has been feeling rather heavy, lightening it up a bit may be a good idea.

If I had to guess this far out, I would say the next album will have more of a punk sound to it. Very in your face, with short songs that are straight to the point.

I have a feeling guys: Love Metal Part 2.

Something doomy, gothic, catchy but slightly progressive and full of scandinavian melancholy.

With Kosmo I definetly don't expect a lighter sound or poppy like DL or SW.

It's coming doomy gloomy stuff, I can feel it.

Yeah, something like Razorblade/Venus Doom mixed together would be great :D I can't imagine though :P

I feel like the next album will be different, in approach, but still retain the newer style HIM has been writing. Heavier guitars with memorable frills, burtons extraordinary melodies, shorter and simpler lyrics, with memorable choruses. Short and punchier songs, with pop ridden melodies over the heavy chorus. Personally, I would like more dark lyrical themes like that of Dark Light. If I could choose a mix of songs as for the overall feel of their next album, I'd like a mix of :


Stigmata Diaboli
Dark Sekret Love
Lose You Tonight
Resurrection
Beyond Redemption
In the Night Side of Eden
Venus Doom
Our Diabolikal Rapture
Love, the Hardest Way
When Love Starts to Die






The endless river, forever and ever...

I kinda grown tired of the 3:30-up tempo-catchy structure. Screamworks and Tears on Tape (except Drawn and WLSTD) have that structure.

I miss the mid tempo, the long atmospheres, LM & DL & VD have that.

I have a feeling they'll be in the studio this fall/early winter.

This is always to be hoped for. Although more than a Love Metal 2 I would like something like if you mashed Venus Doom and Dark Light together. But that would be kind of crazy to realistically root for at this point, I think.

My prediction: Screamworks-like songs, except just a tad bit less poppy overall, with Tears On Tape style production. Basically, a less polished Screamworks.

No predictions from me.....I would take whatever they release because I just love Ville's lyrics.  If I had a preference, however, I would love something like Venus Doom- heavy and brooding lyrics and my favorite song: Cyanide Sun.

That woman, though. It makes me cringe how she speaks. It's awful.
And they wrote/said 'Heartogram'. Ugh. People.

The overall musical style of the upcoming album doesn't matter so much to me as long as they put their hearts into the creative process. I think Tears on Tape lacked this, the album has very little guts, it's just full of recycled ideas and cliches. Let them move away from that and everything's going to be fine.
