HIM? What a fucking awful band.

I'm sure the remixes are good, but fuck.

On the contrary, HIM is a fantastic band.

It's all opinions, isn't it?

Also, are you guys going to answer my emails?

You did say you wanted to hear a finished product first, no demos... so the new ▼□■□■□■ EP isn't finished yet. For example, our female vocalist is still composing her parts for the new single, and we're recording her stuff after I return from my vacation in Kiev on Jan 18th.

As for zxz's Abraxas, you can hear some of the singles (in their final versions) on Soundcloud (Vanished, The Danse Society, intothegroove, LD∞).

Cool. Just making sure you guys didn't change your minds.

I'll be re-listening to the Abraxas tracks tonight.

The oOoOO remix is a masterpiece.

To me, jut knowing it's a HIM track makes it unlistenable.

You know, my hatred of HIM only makes me more curious to see how SALEM and oOoOO could salvage their material. I'm looking forward to checking this out.

That's exactly why these remixes are fantastic.
Neither sound like HIM's typical presentations, and both are HQ God-tier Witch House...

Personal opinion; I think HIM are an amazing group, starting with the reason that Ville Valo's vocals are entirely professional, regardless of how corny and naive his lyrics may be at times. The melodies are a Pop variant of a fusion of Gothic Metal, Gothic Rock, and Alternative Rock (their discography jumps around these three genres), and in my opinion, considering that Witch House thrives on Pop hooks, it is entirely relevant to our genre.

Checked em out, and they're pretty good! After I heard them, I went to see what the originals sounded like, and HOLY TITS are these remixes a step up from that shit. Shows just how much you can save a song by just re-positioning it's elements.

Even slowed down HIM's vocals sound super cheesy though. That's the one drawback, but otherwise, these remixes are great.
