The guys in Kiss use some make up too so at first it was exiting. I've almost stopped using make-up nowadays.
In almost every interview someone asks what does HIM stand for. I can't even remember our latest lie about that. When Hanson was hot, we said it means Hanson Is Murder. The name doesn't have a particular history. His Infernal Majesty was a totally different band. I think HIM derives from some death metal joke.
I haven't travelled that much before so this is the first time I get to see the big cities of Europe. I've never even been to US.
Some genres I'm not a huge fan of but there are always exceptions that break the rules. There are always a few people doing it in a way weird enough to grab my attention.
