Exsecratus was found by O. Mattila in the early spring 2004. Soon N. Hartikainen joined the band. After a few quick member changes, the first whole line-up was completed. During the following autumn E. Vihma and A. Päivinen were found to complete the new style of Exe.
Soon after New Year '05 M. Niemelä took his place behind the drums and the name eXsecratus was decided to be the new name of the band.
In spring '05 Mr. Niemelä left the band due to musical and personal differences. Soon to leave was also E. Hartikainen because of his military service.
During the summer and autumn '05 new songs were made, and in early '06 T. Kauhajärvi became a fulltime member even before his first practice session with the band..
Later in the same winter ex-Elenium and Draugnim drummer J. Raatikainen joined the group to boost the effort to make it as a real, powerful and fast metal band.
In spring '06
On October -06 E.Vihma and A.Päivinen left the band due to personal difficulties between them and the rest of the band. The following day L-M.Hovila filled the gap in lead-singing department. And less than week from that, K.Rautiainen became a serious candidate for the soon-to-be-found solo-guitarist.
And so Exsecratus returned to the rehearsal-place and started to kick some newbie-ass. Not too long after that, Exsecratus as a fully functional metal-regiment once more and rose to the stages again in early December -06. In January -07 Exsecratus did their first tour around
In March ´07 Exsecratus did their first gig outside
A week after that Exsecratus and K.Rautiainen went separate ways. The decision was extremely difficult, but things weren’t working the way they were supposed to.
After few weeks of mourning, Tony Hentilä was announced as the new guitar player / back-up singer. This young fellow seemed perfect to fill the gap K.Rautiainen had left. And also his singing brought new dimensions in the clean parts of Exsecratus.
...And so the tale continues.
