HB (taken from the initials of the designer Helmer Berglund) was a car made in two or three copies at Berglunds mekaniska verkstad at about 1925. On the prototype they used a three-cylinder engine, but the production models had a four-cylinder engine producing 16 horsepower. The engine was connected to a three-speed transmission. The car was a two-seater, and the design was much inspired by the Thulin A by AB Thulinverken. The company was later renamed to Sörby mekaniska verkstad (SMV) and made travel trailers.
HB is a German cigarette brand whose initials stand for 'Haus Bergmann'. They are manufactured by British American Tobacco.
HB is a Christian symphonic metal band, formed in Forssa, Finland in 2002. They recorded a demo, four albums in Finnish with English versions for three of them, two singles, and a live DVD filmed at the Maata Näkyvissä Festival (2006).
Concerning the origin and meaning of the initials HB, Johanna Kultalahti (Aaltonen) said at the official website of the band: "Actually the initials H and B don't really stand for anything. We once had a competition on our webpage, where people could suggest different meanings for the two letters. Holy Bible was one of the suggestions."
Musically the band performs symphonic metal with powerful sounds of the electric guitars, bass guitar and drums, fused with characteristic instruments of classical music, choir and even a few verses of lyric singing. The band is also characterized by the strong spiritual content in their Christ-centred lyrics.
Johanna Kultalahti (Aaltonen), the original lead vocalist, left in early 2013, to be replaced by Miia Rautkoski, who in turn announced her departure from the band in March 2014. On May 3, 2014 the band announced Johanna Aaltonen was back with HB.
