Flat Earth got started after Niclas Etelavuori (bass) fell out with the manager of Amorphis and had his exit of the band. Suddenly, Niclas was left stranded. He decided to show the world that he still had a lot to give, so he started looking for possible band mates. Linde (ex-HIM, guitar) first sprang to mind, even though he still had his hands full with HIM at that time. Nevertheless, the two of them kept meeting regularly, and started working on ideas for new songs. When their old band mate Mika Karppinen (ex-HIM) finally joined on drums, the band’s line-up was completed. And now Flat Earth has released their first album.
“None For One” is the name of this exciting release. It comes with eleven songs. The sound lies somewhere between Amorphis and HIM, but Flat Earth sure has their own sound. Strong guitar riffs and breathtaking vocals are taking you deep into the world of Flath Earth. The songs are telling tales. With arrangements that leave quite some room for your imagination, the songs are forming pictures in your mind. The songs are drawing your attention so much, that they leave behind a void once the music has faded. Don’t be shy and press play again.
This is the debut album of Flat Earth, a name you should keep an eye on. I am sure there is a lot more to come. Until then, enjoy “None For One”.
