Long time rhythm guiarist Harri Pikka left the bandin August 2010. Their official statement read “We’re really sorry to announce also that Harri Pikka has silently decided to flee the OG crew after 13 years of solid service. We don’t know his exact reasons for this but maybe someday mr. Mystery Man tells us… At the moment we’ve decided to finish the new album as a 5-piece unit, but we have the best possible live guitar unit called Joonas Koto (Malpractice / Ex-To/Die/For / Ex-Hateframe) filling the second guitar live duties at the moment and it rocks!” Also, bass player Toni Mäki joined the band in 2009, replacing Eerik Purdon.
