''Love Metal'' is HIM's fourth album, released on 14 April 2003. The digipak edition of this album also includes the bonus track "Love's Requiem". This is HIM's first album that made the band popular to a wider public.

This is HIM's first album that does not feature Ville Valo on the cover. Instead, it features the heartagram, the band's logo.

Valo had grown tired of reporters constantly asking what he considered HIM's genre was. HIM titled this album ''Love Metal'' as a response for that question.

On 1 February 2005 the regular edition of this album was released in the United States under Universal Records licensed by Jimmy Franks Recording Company.

The exclusive eleventh track, "Love's Requiem", was supposed to be released on the standard version of the album, but it pushed the album beyond the one hour mark, so Ville decided to put it on the Digipack version of the album. - Wikipedia
