Finnish goth rocker VILLE VALO discovered the cover art for HIM's new album VENUS DOOM during a shopping trip around New Orleans, Louisiana. The singer stumbled upon artist Harouni during a trip to America and decided one of his paintings would be perfect for the group's new release. After buying the art piece, Valo asked Harouni if he could use it for his band's cover, and, after listening to Him, the artist agreed. A band spokesman says, "Harouni now counts himself as a Him fan."
