EMQ’s With Even Flow
Hi everyone. Welcome to another EMQs interview, this time with Sardinian Melodic Progressive Power Metal band, Even Flow. Huge thanks to Guitarist, Pietro Paolo Lunesu, for taking part.
What is your name, what do you play and can you tell us a little bit about the history of the band?
My name is Pietro Paolo Lunesu, and I am the guitarist of Even Flow together with my brother Giorgio around the end of the nineties we founded the band that plays Melodic Progressive Power Metal of the European mould, with multiple influences.
How did you come up with your band name?
The name of the band comes from the emotions it transmits during the live shows and from the evolution that the band has had over the years in musical terms, the name Even Flow seemed right to us to be able to represent the band.
What Country / Region are you from and what is the Metal / Rock scene like there?
We come from Sardinia, an island in Italy. The local scene I can tell you is very alive, the bands are great and there is great potential for the future.
What is your latest release? (Album, EP, Single, Video)
Our new Ep “Mediterraneo” was released on October 3rd!
Who have been your greatest influences?
The biggest influences were Carlos Santana, Dire Straits, The Police, Queen, Dream Theater, Fates Warning & Queensryche.
What first got you into music?
My parents, thanks to their passion, I entered the world of music, and I will never stop thanking them!
If you could collaborate with a current band or musician who would it be?
I would say Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden!
If you could play any festival in the world, which would you choose and why?
I would tell you that Wacken Open Air, a dream that would come true since I was little! And I would also say Hell Fest & Masters of Rock, exceptional festivals where you breathe and live music.
What’s the weirdest gift you have ever received from a fan?
Let’s be honest, currently, we have not received strange gifts, but only beautiful gifts! We are lucky, we have exceptional fans!
If you had one message for your fans, what would it be?
Guys, always buy CDs, go to concerts and support bands, your enthusiasm is the lifeblood!
If you could bring one rock star back from the dead, who would it be?
Freddie Mercury, is the best!
What do you enjoy the most about being a musician? And what do you hate?
I like being able to play and share our music by meeting so many new people and discovering new places, what I hate is organizing concerts!
If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?
I wish there was no digital music, all this has led to degradation and poverty, music is culture and art, let’s remember that.
Name one of your all-time favourite albums?
Dream Theater – “Images & Words”.
What’s best? Vinyl, Cassettes, CDs or Downloads?
Vinyl & CDs of course!
What’s the best gig that you have played to date?
Opening at Pain Of Salvation in Milan in 2018, I think it was the best date ever for Even Flow.
If you weren’t a musician, what else would you be doing?
Good question! I have to be honest I think the swimmer or at least a sportsman.
Which five people would you invite to a dinner party?
I would invite Dave Mustaine, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Scott Yan & Steve Harris, in my opinion, it would be a nice dinner with a bit of a mess ha ha ha ha!
What’s next for the band?
The prospects are that we are writing the new album, and we hope that next year it will come out, plus doing many concerts.
What Social Media / Website links do you use to get your music out to people?
Time for a very British question now. As an alternative to the humble sandwich, is the correct name for a round piece of bread common in the UK either a Bap, a Barm (or Barm Cake), a Batch, a Bun, a Cob, a Muffin, a Roll or a Tea Cake?
Oh my God! I don’t know ha ha ha! Batch?
Thank you for your time. Is there anything else that you would like to add?
A big thank you for this wonderful interview, and an invitation to all fans to support the music.
