As it was in the beginning
Flame On is a 4 piece rock band based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
They formed after two founding members found themselves at the
same '95 - '96 newyears eve party, and started talking music.
Early 1996 they were now four, and all attending the same highschool
in Nykøbing Falster. They got a great rehersal room directly
adjacent to the school where they spend the next couple of years
practicing, experimenting with hairstyles and growing up in
School's out for summer, School's out for ever!
As the members of Flame On (called DGZ at the time) graduated
school, nothing seemed to keep them on their native islands
(no it's not ONE island!) of Lolland-Falster and they all moved
to the nations capitol, Copenhagen. The first year in Copenhagen
was spend with alot more practicing, and a little more gigging.
A demo with 4 tracks was recorded. Some time hereafter, around
2000, guitarist Jan Sørensen left the band. He was replaced
by long time friend Kristian Kimer, also originally from Falster.
Suddenly Flame On had two songwriters (Tobias beeing the other
major contributor) and alot of new material was produced. The
best of this eventually ended up on the CD-ep "Home is
where the heart is" (The title refferring to their common
With the Line-up of Henrik, John, Tobias & Kristian the
band played more shows in a year than they had done in the previous
4 together. By the summer of 2002 John left the band to focus
on his career as an animator. Emil Kozak, a young guy from Lolland
and former lead singer and guitarist in "One Minute Shift",
took over on bass. Flame On felt ready to take on the challenge
of a full-length. Therefore around mid 2002 they decided to
record an album instead of making another demo. The plan was
to do everything themselves and to do it practically cost-free.
Progress was slow and in the middle of recording drums, Kristian
decided to leave Flame On.
Back to the future...
A change was needed. Henrik stepped up from behind the drums
to focus on his vocals and to finally front the band visually
as he had been vocally for years. A new drummer was needed and
an idea often discussed finally became a reality. Tobias' (younger)
brother Jeppe joined, whilst still being the drummer for Meantime
(now IOTA). Emil switched to guitar and Charlie took over on
bass. The band finished the album 'Overkill' and after a mini
Germany tour and DK tour Emil left the band in late 2004. In
the beginning of '05 Flame On will commence to work on an EP.
