Previously busy on his stint with other bands (Hypocrisy, Pain, etc) and also currently in Swedish power metal band Morifade, Mathias Kamijo decided that it was time to resurrect the ghost of ALGAION and brought it back to life in 2008 together with founding member Mårten Björkman.
New blood has since joined the ALGAION camp, with current members from Corporation 187, Viktor Klint and Robert Eng, contributing on guitars and drums respectively, and Tobias Leffler (previously in Vergelmer and N.C.O) on bass.
Pulverized Records commented on the signing: "It is our great pleasure to have ALGAION join the ranks of the Pulverised Records roster; we are very excited and definitely look forward to a great working releationship with such a veteran class act!"

After 6 years as the vocalist of Morifade, Stefan now has decided to leave his position in the band. His own statement follows:
Due to personal reasons I have decided that my days in Morifade are over. I would like to thank the guys in the band, it´s been a wonderful journey! Best of luck in the future! I would also like to thank my family and friends for their support and understanding through the years. But above all my thanks goes out to all the fans around the world for your everlasting support and devotion. Thank you for some truly unforgettable moments!
Stefan's decision to leave the band did not come as a shock to us when he broke the news a couple of months ago, we had felt this coming for about a year and a half.
We thank Stefan for his long time in Morifade and wishes him the best of luck in the future!
All this means that right now we are searching for a new vocalist and we have several singers waiting to be auditioning for the band, in the meantime, ALL SINGERS are welcome to send us demos and info about themselves if you are interested to be the lead vocalist in Morifade!"
