H.I.M. HEARTAGRAM BUTTON
H.I.M. HEARTAGRAM BUTTON - ONE INCH
The ironically named HIM (His Infernal Majesty) initially broke through in Germany, before branching out through the rest of Europe with their well-received forth album Love Metal, whose accompanying singles “Buried Alive By Love”, “The Funeral of Hearts”, and “The Sacrament”, all garnered high praise from headbangers and Alternative Rock fans alike.
In 2005 Ville Valo and company followed up the success of their previous album with Dark Light, which brought about prominent exposure in the United States.
The band’s iconic heartagram logo (which Valo described as their spiritual essence and even likened it to a modern day Yin and Yang) has taken on a life of its own, appearing on everything from skateboards to Kat Von D’s body.
Influenced by: Black Sabbath, Metallica, Blue Oyster Cult, Bon Jovi
