Finland’s love metal kings, HIM, were at Toronto’s Rebel Nightclub on Monday, November 13th, along with opening acts CKY and 3Teeth. “Bang And Whimper 2017 – The Farewell Tour”, began back in June in Barcelona, Spain and will wind down on New Year’s Eve at the Helldone Festival in their hometown of Helsinki.

HIM has been playing “Metal Love Songs” for a quarter of a century, drawing a huge number of American and local fans to Rebel. The huge number of screaming female fans were only subdued once the band started playing, and then came the assault on the senses with blinding strobe lights and smoke. All I can say is, WOW!
