We have just received word that former H.I.M. guitarist Mikko “Linde” Lindström and drummer Mika “Gas Lipstick” Karppinen, have teamed up with former Amorphis singer Niclas Etelävuori and Polanski bassist Anttoni “Anthony” Pikkarainen to form Flat Earth. If you miss your fill of His Infernal Majesty, check out the first single Blame, you won’t be disappointed.
Here is a sample of the press release sent our way:
Flat Earth unites Mikko “Linde” Lindström and Mika “Gas Lipstick” Karppinen (both ex-HIM), Niclas Etelävuori (ex-Amorphis) and Anttoni “Anthony” Pikkarainen (Polanski) to bring a creative vision to life that points to the heyday of alternative rock, but also draws from a variety of other genres without losing the thread in-between.
Although some of the musicians can look back on impressive careers, Flat Earth can be seen as a new beginning and isn’t intended to be carried by just the previous achievements of single members. Flat Earth do not want to be another self-titled “supergroup”, let alone sail in the slipstream of the past – instead they want to step into the light.
Already the first single “Blame” shows what people can expect music-wise and is a first taste for the debut album of the Finns, which will be released later in 2018, Europe-wide (excluding Finland) via Drakkar Entertainment.
