After 6 years and three albums, Finnish rock band HIM and Sire/Warner Music have decided to part ways.

Seymour Stein, founder of Sire Records says: "It was a pleasure working with HIM, and we're very proud to have been their partners for the last six years. Ville is a rare talent, and my relationship with their manager Seppo dates back to the days when he pioneered rock music in Finland looking after the career of Hanoi Rocks. HIM are particularly important because they are the first and only band from Finland to reach Gold status in America. I, along with the entire Sire/Warner Bros. family, wish them continued success in the future."

HIM's discography on Sire includes the 2005 album Dark Light, which reached gold in the US. Follow-up albums Venus Doom (2007) and Screamworks: Love in Theory and Practice (2010) charted both in the US and Europe.

"We're ever so grateful for having had Seymour and Co as the generous hosts on our extended first stay in the New Country. It's been a Blast Royale but now it's time to clean up the rubble and start anew", comments Ville Valo of HIM.

Their last 3 albums are total crap. Funny enough, the 3 were published by Sire/Warner.

Agreed. As soon as they got popular in America, they almost instantly turned into Hot Topic fodder.

Yeah great news, Warner is a really fucked label, they made everything wrong with HIM, I hate them for this...

I particularly enjoyed Venus Doom, especially the song Sleepwalking Past Hope. Super great song. Anyway, I'm sure HIM will go on and do their thing like they always have. Hopefully they sign with a strong label.

Couldn't agree more, I also liked Venus Doom very much, it's an underrated album by them IMHO.

Though, I can't deny I wish they would go back to their GLV666/RR style a bit more.

Totally agree with you two

By the other side, I see very difficult hear again stuff like GLS V 666

Personally I liked all 3 albums released by Warner but they can't be compared with the ones released before 2004 (Sony BMG). They were more commercial if you like it... So as a big fan of the band and their sound I can say that I am excited with the separation from Warner! But only time will show if they are about to return to their original lovely sound (GLS V.666 and Love Metal).
Good luck guys!!!
