Hestnaes' first appearance back with ARCTURUS took place at the Inferno Festival kick-off event at the Underworld in London on January 27.

Hestnaes had previously performed vocals on three tracks and written the lyrics for one song on ARCTURUS' 1997 album, "La Masquerade Infernale".

ARCTURUS announced in January that vocalist Øyvind Hægeland (SPIRAL ARCHITECT) had left the group. No reason was given for his departure.
