HiM - Resurrection - Dorian Cage 🖤🦁🇭🇷 There was a time
When I could breath my life in you
One by one
Your pale fingers started to move
And I touched your face
And all life was erased
You smiled like an angel
(falling from grace)
We've been slaves to this love
From the moment we touched
And keep begging for more
Of this resurrection
Люди все время спрашивают меня, что за фигня эта скандинавская меланхолия? Когда я пел "Kun Minä Kotoani Läksin..." то эти слова объясняют очень многое в финской фольклорной музыке. Это необязательно душераздирающая песня, просто очень, очень грустная. Эта песня о том, как ты покидаешь свой дом, и мир очень жесток к тебе, и ты влюбляешься в девушку и не можешь быть с ней.Это классика фольклора. Это те вещи, с которыми мы выросли.

About 18 years ago I heard on rock radio HIM - “Funeral of Hearts” and I really liked this song. Then I saw a video on MTV and love this song even more.
At that time I didn’t have a computer or the Internet, and all the information could be found only in youth magazines, on MTV and radio. Music was bought on discs and audio tapes, and concerts and clips on video tapes. At that time I was just interested in Finland (I am Russian Finnish), especially Finnish music.
HIM became my favorite band (I am an endless dark romantic), my whole room was hung with posters, I collected articles from magazines and bought books with lyrics, and I took musicians as a basis for several characters in the illustrated fantasy novel that I wrote in my high school and first year university. I didn’t know the lyrics, but I automatically sang songs. I was a fan. It lasted about 5 years and it became the real era of my early youth.
Even now, when I hear their songs on the same rock radio, I sing with Ville, although I don’t remember the lyrics.
A couple of weeks ago I saw the clip of MGT & Ville Valo - "Knowing Me Knowing You" and I cried. I smiled and cried, I was gripped by nostalgia and remembered youth. That was great!
Were you fans in your youth or now? And what bands and musicians?
I have many favorite bands now, but I’m not a fan.
Рекорд-компании хотят иметь контракты, которые позволят им полностью контролировать продажи, а также все права на исполнителя. Но HIM отказались от этого. Я могу быть весьма неприятной личностью, так что люди из рекорд-компании побаиваются меня.
And love said no tour... 10th anniversary
15 years ago. My first HIM show. I've written up about this day for several years so there isn't really much to say about a well kept memory. The first show will always be the best show. I'm grateful for this band because they've shaped me, brought me to the people who are some of my closest friends, and gave me experiences that I don't think I would've ever had otherwise.
