Sigillum Diaboli
by HIM

Album: Razorblade Romance (1999)

Songfacts®:

  • "Sigillum Diaboli" in Latin means "Devil's Seal." The song is addressed to a girl who is bringing the singer down on a level of biblical proportions.
  • Released as a bonus track on European issues of HIM's second album Razorblade Romance, "Sigillum Diaboli" is a reworking of the band's song "Stigmata Diaboli," which appeared on their 1996 Finland-only release, 666 Ways to Love: Prologue.
  • This is pro skateboarder and MTV personality Bam Margera's favorite HIM song - he got the title tattooed on him by tattoo artist Kat Von D. Margera is a huge fan of the band, and gave lead singer Ville Valo a part in his movie Jackass Number Two. >>
