Finnish metal band EXSECRATUS has been rejoined by guitarist Kimi Rautiainen.

EXSECRATUS released its debut album, "Tainted Dreams", in Japan on January 23, 2008 through Spiritual Beast (via a licensing deal with Violent Journey Records). The Japanese pressing of the album contains new artwork and two bonus tracks: "For You" and "Death Brings Me Joy".

"Tainted Dreams" was released in Finland on September 3, 2007 via Violent Journey Records. The CD features a guest appearance by NORTHER frontman Petri Lindroos in the track Under the Winter Moon. According to a press release, "These young masters of melodic metal combine influences from band like CHILDREN OF BODOM, SONATA ARCTICA, NIGHTWISH, DIMMU BORGIR and lots and lots of other big names. The male-female vocal combos work together like a machine, as well as the melodies and heart pounding riffs compel the listeners to bang their heads."
