Ville nekad zaista ume da bude "drama queen":roll: To je samo jedna od onih faza...
A šta kažete na onaj deo "desperately trying to find a girlfriend"?

Čini mi se da sam negde pročitala da će u aprilskom izdanju Rock Sound-a biti HIM, pa ako neko nađe link, bilo bi lepo da ga postavi;)

Inače, onaj poster o kojem je nedavno bilo reči, je li iz domaćeg ili hrvatskog OK?

pozz svima

Poster je iz srbijanskog OK-a.;)

Izgledao je svjeze i raspolozeno ( iako mi je frendica, koja je bila u backstageu, pricala kako je bio jako nervozan). Bio je prilicno komunikativan, a jednu pjesmu je posvetio svim djevicama in the house
kako ti ljudi uopste stignu u backstage? ozbiljno, uvek sam se pitala koji su ti koji mogu da idu tamo. ali, on je skroz blesav, zivo me interesuje koju je to pesmu posvetio devicama? :D

Venuss, ja te zvanično nisam pozdravila!
Pošto je bilo neke priče ovde kako su nam žene domaćice, evo jedne domaćinske dobrodošlice za tebe, k'o u svakoj dobroj kući!
DOBRO NAM DOŠLA!!!

odlično izgleda...

....a evo i još jednog fresh intrevjua:

HIM012.JPG


Eve Roberts recently took a soul-searching journey with Finland’s masters of melancholy metal – HIM. The band toured Australia and New Zealand in late March - their last stops on a worldwide tour that followed the release of their latest album, Venus Doom.

In a Sydney harbour hotel room, two coffee cups sit on a table, next to a paperback of Edgar Allan Poe’s poetry and a pack of Marlboros. Across the table, behind a cloud of cigarette smoke, I see Ville Valo lean forward to pour himself another black coffee.

“I don’t believe in the existence of soul,” says Valo, lifting his head up. Under the brown gatsby hat, his intense gaze reiterates his point. “I believe in soulful things but I don’t have a soul to search.”

Valo is the singer and songwriter of HIM. The other coffee cup belongs to Migé, HIM’s burly bass player.

I check Migé’s ghoulish chest X-ray T-shirt for evidence of soul between the bones, but there is nothing. Yet, he is more upbeat about it.

“I think who delivered the final blow to the word ‘soul’ was James Brown,” says Migé, an impish smile escaping through his long lanky hair. “He’s a fine man but he annihilated the word with his insane behaviour.”

These are intriguing words coming from members of a band that for 15 years has performed songs about dark tortures of the soul. Anguish, loneliness, love and death have been the essence of HIM’s music, and these themes were explored with a gloomy edge in their latest album Venus Doom.

But if there is no soul, then why does the song “Sleepwalking Past Hope” lament that we are forever lost in our soul’s storm? Why does “Cyanide Sun” try to separate souls entwined in labirynthe lies?

“Introspection is very healthy at times,” explains Valo. “What can be more fascinating than the everchanging relationship with yourself.”

“I was a moody bastard when working on Venus Doom, so it turned out to be a fairly gloomy album,” he admits, lifting his elaborately tattooed arm to take another drag of his cigarette. I notice two thick silver rings on his middle and ring fingers. “I went through a lot of shit and I don’t have anybody to cry to. I don’t have any shoulders so my guitar works as my shoulders.”

Venus Doom holds the mirror up to Valo’s state of mind, but it also offers a clue as to another element at play. The album’s booklet expresses gratitude to Promises, Malibu – a renowned alcohol addiction centre. In previous interviews, Valo acknowledged his addiction, which saw his health deteriorate prior to going into rehab in 2007.

He is drinking black coffee now, and I leave that part of Valo alone.

It’s just as well because Valo puts a premium on people’s imaginations rather than his private life.

“I have my personal meaning to Venus Doom,” he replies when I ask about the album title. “That remains personal since I don’t want to spread my personal ideas like a virus. It’s good to have people’s imaginations at work.”

Valo recalls coming across people with astrological interpretations of the name. I mention that I see it as a metaphor for femme fatale – a dangerous temptress.

“You’ve got to give a story a good 30 years to be able to create as many interpretations as possible before you actually give the story away,” says Valo. “And when you’ve lived with your interpretation for enough of a time then that is your truth and it doesn’t really matter what the artist’s truth is. That’s art, and if we can be a part of it – pop art – that’s always a bonus.”

HIM holds a distinctive place in the realm of pop-art, due to their blend of emotional lyrics and intense metal sounds. A musical potion of soft and hard, of good and evil. What Valo calls the yin-yang theme has also been reflected in HIM’s album titles, most recently with Venus Doom, but also going back to Dark Light in 2005, and 1999’s Razorblade Romance. And the reason for this mixture?

“Soulful transgression happens through, at times, very violent means,” Valo explains. “I don’t believe that looking for truth has to be something peaceful, that you’ve got to be meditating upon things. You’ve got to ******* shove your fingers in the electric socket and see what happens. And then do it all over again.”

Migé, responsible for HIM’s piercing bass tunes, agrees. He doesn’t see the point of meek soul-searching. “These soul searching tapes that you need to buy,” he says, “the kind of new age stuff that people for some reason think is for soul-searching. It’s not for that, it’s for pot smoking.”

Valo laughs, “Pot-smoking can be soul-searching as well.” Then he reiterates that he has no soul to search. And I am curious - if there is no soul, what is there?

“Do you mean that a person would need a one centre, like heaven? A goal in their life, or a centrepiece?” he asks.

Not necessarily, I say, slightly on the defensive. A soul can be anything to anyone.

“Then it doesn’t have any meaning. Then it’s just a word,” says Valo, adding that we could talk about this for hours. “I believe in family, friendship and music. Saying I believe in them means that somebody may prove me wrong. I don’t know that music can save me. I don’t know that my family can save me. I don’t know if I can save
myself.”

“With me,” he continues, lighting another cigarette, “I use the word ‘clarity’ for soul. Understanding why. Journey is more important than actually getting there.”

Valo is right – we could sit here forever, searching for obscure answers amidst the haze of cigarette smoke.

For now though, Valo and Migé are content where they are, looking forward to heading back to Helsinki after almost eight months of touring.
“We’re pretty tired,” says Migé, taking a sip of his coffee.

“When we get back home, we’ll relax for a bit and start writing new songs,” Valo picks up his Marlboros and book of poetry. “I want to be surprised by a melody I haven’t come across yet.”

With a cheeky grin, he adds, “And, I’ll be doing some soul-searching.”

Super je intervju. Kako je lepo kad neko tako ozbiljno shvata to čime se bavi... Naročito kao je u pitanju muzika. Tj. bilo koja vrsta umetnosti.

Ville stalno menja stavove po pitanju raznih stvari, ali ne i kad je MUZIKA u pitanju i to je za pohvalu. Kad kažem da je ostario, samo konstatujem da nema više baby face, naročito kad uporedim neke slike od pre par godina i sada. U svakom slučaju deluje zrelije sada.

meni je najupecatljiviji look onaj iz summer wine, nekako mi je tu ozbiljan, prefinjen, sexy... OK, preterale smo, napustice nas ovi muskarci definitivno :)

nego, ja sam pre neki dan preslusala ceo Dark Light, posto ga bas dugo nisam cula i Behind the Crimson Door mi je tako savrsena bila, a ranije mi se uopste nije svidjala... Sad je slusam 10 puta dnevno, kao manijak, pa me cisto zanima sta vi mislite o njoj.

Sa albuma Dark Light, Behind The Crimson Door mi je najbolja. Na 2. mestu mi je Killing Loneliness, a treceplasirana je Under The Rose :-)
Inače, i meni se dešava da mi se neka pesma ne svidi "na prvi pogled", ali je kasnije zavolim...
