The Video Collection

HIM - The Video Collection: 1997-2003 - 2004 - Universal Records
There is some cool bonus footage included such as the Making of “The Sacrament” and “Buried Alive By Love” as well as some interview segments. Bam Marguera, an MTV celebrity from the show “Viva La Bam” describes what about the band appealed to him so much that he would help with the creation of their last few videos. Ville Vallo also gives some good background on the band and its origins as “His Infernal Majesty” up until the time of the interview. I enjoyed the piece as I always like a nicely done video and their mini-movies are shot well. Like I said one of them actually made me look more into the band and that amounts to something. They hold some difference to videos from straight ahead Metal bands were everyone is in a room jamming. I have to also inform the female fan base (which is massive in scope) that they will enjoy all the various shots of Ville that they get in this DVD.
There is no booklet to speak of, just a page that lists the existing CD Releases. Yet overall it’s a great introduction to the style, look and sound of the group. It’s also very affordable in most cases. Take a look into it.
