A couple of songs on Niclas' hard drive (or 'heart'-drive speaking in Anttoni's words) were the seed from which FLAT EARTH has grown. Are they newcomers? A superband? Veterans? Or hilarious geniuses? Former 'Heartagram' (HIM) instrumentalists Gas Lipstick (Mika Karppinen) and Linde (Mikko Lindström) joined the former Amorphis bass player Niclas (Niklas Etelävuori) and found in the Polanski singer Anthony (Anttoni Pikkarainen) their perfect match, conneting these grownups in his emotion club. Their first single, "Blame" will be out any moment. This was the band's first interview at all!

Meeting Anneke was very special to me. She one of the role models in metal for generations of female metal vocalists, radiats such a positive vibe and inspiring. There is so much energy she gives in the interview as much as on stage.
