Anton Lindsjö

Anton is the lead guitarist for HFMC. Learn more about him here!

Do you enjoy playing live shows or working in the studio more? And why?

That's a tie for me. I have a love/hate relationship with being in the studio. I love the endless posibilities and control it presents and the feeling of creating something new from scratch. But it also involves the self created preassure from being a perfectionist. I'm never REALLY get totally satisfied. Live is a whole different thing. There's an energy
live that you never get in the studio.

What's a typical day in the studio like?

Recrording mainly at home, I rarely have a full day in the studio per say. For the most part I record at night. That's the time when I get relaxed and my creative spirit kicks in.

What has been your greatest professional moment so far?

Very hard to say. It's hard for anything to compete with the first years of playing when everything you did was a new groundbreaking experience. Going to London playing for a week with my old band is one of the best touring experiences I had.

Where is a venue you would love to play but haven't had a chance yet?

Wow, there's a lot of them. Actually I'm not too particular about that.
But I'd love to go overseas to play!

How does songwriting within the band go?

As these are all Hasses songs, most of the music is already done. Hasse has all the parts in his head and rehearsing them was just a matter of learning his parts and build upon them. Saying that, I still feel that I have alot of freedom to put my soul and touch into the music.

How did you get into music?

I sung a lot at a very erarly age. In school, this was such a problem for the teachers and classmates, having this little guy never shutting up. Luckily there was this school with scheduled choir music. So there was a lot of classical music in my younger years. Growing up I discovered Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gay, Boys to men and a lot of other black soul music. In 8th grade my brother got a bass guitar. After trying it out and realising that there couldn't be two bassplayers in the family I figured
I'd havea go at guitar. Soon I discovered Kiss and Europe and all of a sudden, rock guitar was the only thing I was intressted in.

Who are some of your musical influences?

I have already mensioned a lot of my early ones. But when it comes to guitar, the 80s have always facinating me. My first idols were Gary Moore, Bruce Kulick, Kee Marcello and Yngwie Malmsteen. After getting into Yngwie I got really stinged with the shred thing and one om my biggest influences from that period is Paul Gilbert. Later influences would be Brett Garsed and Guthrie Govan.

How did you come to be in this band?

I met Ola when we played together for a short period of time in another band. I felt an instant bond both personally as well as musically. We played a few gigs together and then split. Maybe six months later I get an early morning phone call from a stranger named Hasse asking me to join this band of his. The one responsible and for me to thank is Ola who had told Hasse about me.

What's the first album you ever owned?

That might be MJs Bad. I still remeber the sensation of something otherworldy coming out of the speakers.

What are some of your musical goals?

My only musical goal is to always try to do things as close to my personal ideals at all times, as long as the music benefits from it of course. But I need to feel that the music is expressive, at least to MY ears.

Do you have a day job?? If so what is it?

I'm a youth recreation leader and work with kids and teenagers. I also run a rehearsal space for young rockbands as well as leading a choir.

What equipment do you use?

I change equipment a lot, being a total gearhead, but at the moment my arsenal consists of Soldano, Fender and Blackstar amps. Guitars are mainly Bach, LP and tele. And then there are a good 30+ effects pedals to choose from.

What other projects are you involved with?

At the moment I play with a country band called Helena-Maria and the Western Joy. There are a lot of temporary projects where a contribute with recording or playing live for a one off gig.

Some Silly Questions:

What's your favorite dessert?

Not a very bit fan of desserts but I do love chocolate so anything
chocolaty.

When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up? And why?

I was determined to be a miniature painter for Games workshop through my high school years. Used to draw alot when I was younger but for some reason music took over. I still enjoy being creative with a pencil though.

What's your favorite book or movie? And why?

Hard question but Forrest Gump I still love watching.

Tell us an embarrassing story about you!

My first big choir consert at the age of 7 and I had this solo vers in
front of 2000+ people. My vers comes and all I can utter is -uhhh...

Outside of music, what's your favorite hobby? And why?

Right now it's basket ball. I've been playing a lot this summer which was
very good for me. And my body.

Pirates or ninjas? And why?

Ninjas! Love their elegancy!

What's your favorite holiday? And why?

Not sure. But for now I can't wait for the winter and some snowboarding.

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what five things
would you want to have with you? And why?


Woah! That probably would be an acoustic and four slinky e-strings. I tend to break these all the time lately. :(

If you were King of the World what?s the first thing youwould change? And why?

Putting someone else in that throne.

Do you have any pets?

No but I used to have a cat called Ofelia Magnificat Misserere (misse = cat) but it was far to long a name to say so we called her Buffy.
