Also added Marko Tarkiainen as an official member of the band. He has played with us over half a year already, so it is long overdue to publish it.

Marko has played with us for a while in the past for couple of months in autumn of 2009, but we decided to put the band on hold as no new material was conceived, and all of us were tired of the early material we had played since 2003/2004. It was in the winter of the same year that inspired me to make the songs for "Secluded Paths" demo. So in a way, it was useful as to ignite the spark that allowed me to form the ideas of how to move the band forward.

Marko has been proven to be a reliable and technically able guitarist with whom we see a bright future ahead.
