As most HIM fans know, year to year the band always chooses to improvise their sound (weather it's playing a song downtuned, using Gothic effect keyboards that isn't in the studio album etc) they've gone through various setups through the era's such as when GLSV666 Came out,  the live guitar was very fuzzy, the drum kit was powerful yet punky, or Love Metal era with MIGE having a more fuzzy bass sound (semifinal, Hamburg 2003) or Venus doom era with the tour where everything was played at a lower key.
The tot to now era has had Ville singing much higher with Burton using poppy effects to accompany his vocals. My question is which "sound template" are you guys hoping to hear live? Or are you guys hoping for a new live setup all together? Opinions???

Even though I didn´t disliked the sound on Tears on Tape tour, I think they should play on a lower key so Ville can be more confortable with is singing tone... The setup on GLS666 was my favourite I believe.

I agree. When he sings ata lower key, it seems easier for him to hit the notes. Into the night live sounded like he couldn't keep in key

I just think that a lower ley to the voice suits better to the band sound, that baritone is unique. Next Saturday I will have my chance to check by my own ears and eyes how the band sounds,I´ll make the most of it in every moment! :D
