HIM’s first single Heartkiller, taken from their forthcoming album Screamworks: Love in Theory and Practice, premiered today on the band’s myspace page. The long awaited single has brought out some mixed feelings amongst fans. But as HIM fans, we know there is one thing we can always expect from HIM … variety!  I don’t know about you but I get bored easily with the same old beat. Luckily, with Valo and his crew that never happens. Each album is in it’s own way unique and different from the previous. And every song within an album is also different (you know what I mean, don’t ya?)

So, what did I think of Heartkiller? Well…ummm….errrr. Catchy? Yes. Radio-friendly? Check. Shakes my butt? I’m shaking it at this moment!  Will it be a hit? I think so. Supposing I had never heard of HIM and listened to Heartkiller for the first time, would I like it? YES! Did I find it unique and breath-taking? No. BUT! In my opinion HIM’s unique sound lies within those songs that some how never make it to singles… so I’m definately buying the new album!

Did your sparks fly for Heartkiller?

Heartkiller is catchy and radio friendly. I like to experience the entire HIM album because each song is interconnected. So, Heartkiller feels like the courting period before really getting to know someone :)

Oh, I feel exactly the way himlibrary describes it, and yes, Kerries explanation is quite good. I’d love to hear the whole album. This song is maybe a little bit to much pop then rock for me. Not a bad thing though, bad it’s not as much “HIM” as they used to be…ah, it’s hard to explain :D

I mean: “Not a bad thing though, BUT it’s not as much “HIM” as they used to be…ah, it’s hard to explain :D

i agree with every single word you say, before i know HIM i listened to many bands and singers, and most of them i knew their songs even before they sing as there was no variety you know same line all the way… but when i started to listen to HIM i found that each song takes me to another world and each thing they do has it’s own flavor… they’re so talented and gifted and i expect the best from them…
and hell yea my sparks fly for HEARTKILLER… ;)
