HIM's new album, "Venus Doom", is scheduled for release in North America on September 18 via Sire. The CD was recorded with producer Tim Palmer (U2, Switchfoot, Hot Hot Heat) and co-producer Hiili Hiilesmaa at Finnvox Studios in Finland.
With "Venus Doom", the band's sixth album, HIM fans can anticipate a decisively heavier sound, influenced by Black Sabbath, old-school Metallica and Soundgarden, among others.
