New HIM track

HIM return in February with their new record Screamworks: Love In Theory & Practice and “Heartkiller” is its first single.

HIM have always had a very appealing and easy accessibility in their sound but still retained that dark edge that brought them to the dance. But in recent albums the Finns have veered more and more to majority pleasing protocol. Sure, last effort Venus Doom saw the band revisit some darker melancholic roots. But alas, “Heartkiller” is heaving with unabashed poppy hooks and wouldn’t sound out of place on a 80s synth pop record.

However, the state of one track won’t deter the inevitable success of Screamworks: Love In Theory & Practice, with its overall manner still remaining a mystery.
