The Viper Room 10/17/05

Singer Ville Valo and his band HIM played a secret show at the world famous Viper Room Monday night. The Helsinki quartet, which has garnered an enormous audience in Europe, has been gaining popularity here in The States, and is likely to be soon seen as more than a cult band.

It was obvious that many of the attendees of the show were in the industry or were affiliated with someone who was. Nonetheless, I have never seen so many good looking women in a club the size of the Viper Room. What was different in this "industry" gathering is that everyone was really into HIM and were singing along fervently as the band played on.

The band HIM (His Infernal Majesty) are a talented five, who play their brand of goth rock with power, professionalism and a great degree of zeal. They are now out on tour promoting their newly released album Dark Light.

No bras were thrown onto the stage during the set, so at this point Ville Valo has nothing on Adam Ant, Steven Tyler, David Coverdale or Tom Jones, who -- in their day (and even now)-- each had enough bras thrown at them during a performance to fill a bin at Victoria's Secret.

Revolver magazine, whose feature article is on HIM, named Valo the new "Prince of Fucking Darkness", and he is on this month's cover.
