Band Name Origins:

  • In an interview I have recorded, Ville says since they loved Black Sabbath. They thought it was cool that they chose their name from a horror film. They did the same and chose His Infernal Majesty. But in Scandinavia around that time, there was a lot of trouble with black metal bands burning churches and stuff, and since it was a dark sounding name they didn't want to be confused with those people, so they shortened it to HIM. Since then Ville has said it stood for other things as a joke, and he said that he likes how it's short and easy to pronounce in every language. Submitted by: poisongirl
  • Him stands for His Inferno Majesty. They name dit this because the band idolized King Henry IV. Submitted by: Blake
