To Separate the Flesh from the Bones is a grindcore/death metal band from Finland. The band can be considered a side project of three members of Finland's metal and rock scenes: Pasi Koskinen (ex-Amorphis, ex-Shape of Despair, Ajattara), Mika Karppinen (HIM), and Niclas Etelävuori (Amorphis, ex-Moonspell).
The project began circa 2004 when three active members of Finland's metal scene decided to create a grindcore and brutal death side project. Pasi Koskinen and Niclas Etelävuori, ex-bandmates from Amorphis, joined Mika Karppinen (aka Gas) who is in the gothic rock band HIM.
Though the band members aren't anonymous, they want to keep their identities hidden by covering their faces in promo pictures and live concerts and by using pseudonyms instead of their real names: Herr Arschstein (Pasi Koskinen), Rot Wailer (Niclas Etelävuori), and Pus Sypope (Mika "Gas" Karppinen).
