    The first album I kind of liked, but everything after that has been pretty much a rubbish. Nowadays their sound is closer to boyband than metal. It´s so sad that there are (and has been) so many better bands and artists in Finland than HIM but people just don´t know them, for example:

    Lapko (<- takes part in this years Global Battle Of Bands) (http://www.lapko.com)
    Disco Ensemble (http://www.discoensemble.com)
    Kingston Wall
    Quintessence
    Giant Robot
    Nuspirit Helsinki
    Paleface
    The Flaming Sideburns

    hmm. I don't agree with you on the rubbish part but I'd say the quality has gone down..

    but I do agree on that that there are good finnish bands nobody knows about. like the ones you mentioned.
    although haven't heard all of them, but I have heard of them. :)

    They played Mexico City this last weekend... a person of the audience phoned the radio this morning to say "I have never seen a singer so cold or indifferent towards his crowd", and I assume this came from a fan...

    Kingston Wall was one of the best rock bands ever existed. Singer/Guitarist Petri Walli committed a suicide in jun 1995 and that finally ended the bands career, although the band had decided to split up already in dec 1994.

    About a month ago was released a live album called The Real Live Thing, which includes various performances by the band over the years.

    Comparing HIM and Kingston Wall, is like comparing Limp Bizkit and Pearl Jam. I suggest you listen to all the three studio albums that KW released and then think again how good HIM really is, is it really worth a topic in Pearl Jam forum? It really does´nt matter which album you start, but my personal favorite is II. You can also get all the three studio albums from amazon.
    ...the dreams ain't broken down here now,
    they're walking with a limp

    I'm not compairing anything to anything.
    and, I have heard some KW and I think they're really good.
    and I still like HIM and feel they're worth a topic here.

    when I have the time and the money, maybe I will get the albums. :)
