HIM's November 14-15 concerts at the Orpheium Theatre in Los Angeles will be filmed for an upcoming DVD, tentatively due next year. November 14 is sold out, but you can still claim your place in HIM history on November 15 at the Orpheum Theatre while tickets last. Get your tickets while you still can from Ticketmaster.

As previously reported, HIM will be the featured guests on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline", hosted by Bob Coburn, airing Monday, November 12 at 11:30 p.m. EST/8:30 p.m. PST. Fans can talk live with HIM by calling 800-344-ROCK (7625). To find a station near you or to listen to the show live via the Internet, go to Rocklineradio.com.

HIM's new album, "Venus Doom", sold 38,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 12 on The Billboard 200 chart.

Ville Valo recently told the Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat that the band wanted to make a more minimalist album this time out. Enough time has elapsed from the early '90s when Valo himself was absorbing influences from bands such as Cathedral, Paradise Lost, Anathema, Type O Negative, Monster Magnet, My Dying Bride and others like them.

"There is no way we could have pulled off that sort of thing at the time when Type O Negative came out with 'Bloody Kisses' [released in 1993]. And you know, by the way, that there's plenty of people today who know nothing about that band, or about the Swedish band Candlemass or Paradise Lost, even. If we had come out with this sort of material at the same time as them, it would just have come across like a rip-off."

    who cares if you get first post...seriously. you want a medal or something? i wish i could go to LA and see them, they are awesome live
    its not a big deal to get first post on an article that doesn't perk enough interest for people to comment on things other than first post.

    could have at least made it relevant. and you could have made that one relevant too. anyways, can't say i've ever been too big a fan of HIM but I wouldn't mind seeing them
    this will be a pretty boring DVD then, because they are pretty horrid live. I saw them live and ville stood in the same spot the whole time (literally, he didnt move barely at all), the guitarist and bassist are the only ones that have any stage prescence. But i still like HIM and Venus Doom was a good album.
    I saw HIM here in Denver with Bleeding Through.HIM was excellent,Bleeding Through was horrible.Can't wait for the DVD to come out.
