About this album

Razorblade Romance is the second studio album by HIM, released on 19 December 1999 in Finland and 24 January 2000 in the rest of Europe - except for the UK, where it was released 15 May 2000. It was produced by John Fryer and recorded at Rockfield recording studios in Wales by John Fryer and Paul Read. All songs and lyrics on the album, with the exception of Chris Isaak’s Wicked Game, are composed by Ville Valo.

The album made HIM huge in Europe when their single Join Me In Death was featured in the sci-fi movie The Thirteenth Floor. It reached #1 on German sales charts, going platinum, and is the biggest-selling single in Finnish music history.
Razorblade Romance was released shortly after in the U.S. under the moniker “HER”. There was a jazz band in Chicago named HiM who did not want to give up the rights to their name, but eventually HIM bought the rights to use their name in the United States and now can release their albums under it. The American albums were released under Jimmy Franks Recording Company, run by Jimmy Pop, singer of the Pennsylvania band Bloodhound Gang. They released the HER ‘Razorblade Romance’ around the Boston area, and once HIM regained the rights to their name, they re-released ‘Razorblade Romance’ nationwide under Universal Records.
