A month's worth of reasons to vote for Helsinki in 2017, part 12

calm, metal
I'm posting a different Finnish heavy metal video each day in June in support of the Helsinki in 2017 Worldcon bid. Why? Because Finland is metal, that's why!

You can't really talk about Finnish gothic metal without talking about HIM. Actually, the band call what they do "love metal" and they have a cute little logo that's a cross between a heart and a pentagram to prove it.

This is a cover of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game". Despite the fact that it transforms the haunting guitar melody from the original track into a fairly standard sounding heavy-metal guitar lick, it kind of works. And the video is full of beautiful people in black lipstick.
