FLAT EARTH Featuring Former Members Of HIM, AMORPHIS Working On Debut Album; Video
February 12, 2018, a year ago
Flat Earth is the new band formed by former HIM members Mikko "Linde" Lindström (guitar) and Mika "Gas Lipstick" Karppinen (drums), along with ex-Amorphis bassist Niclas Etelävuori and Polanski singer Anttoni "Anthony" Pikkarainen.
Flat Earth is here to blow your ears with a good, old rock socks with a grunge vibe to it. Help them raise the money to finish the recording of their first ever full length album to be completely recorded at Finnvox studios by the producer Hiili Hiilesmaa in Helsinki, Finland.
Hailing from Helsinki, Flat Earth is anything but your run-of-the-mill ‟super group”. The foursome is an ideal amalgamation of love for music, every band member’s unique skillset and battle-tested charisma, completed with a dynamic of a band that has been playing together for aeons.
The audible musical signposts point to the heydays of alternative rock, takes a nonchalant bow to the forefathers of all things heavy with a pinch of wistful psychedelia. Magnetically melodic, playful, exhilaratingly unconstrained and thoroughly permeated by vocalist Anthony’s passionately melancholic overtones, Flat Earth delivers in the same parcel both the beauty and the beast.
