Pathfinder

Pathfinder was formed in 2006 as an initiative made by Arkadiusz E. Ruth (bass and composing). The main idea behind the band from its very beginning had been the combination of film music, classical music and a wide scope of metal. After a few years of composing alone, Ruth let Karol Mania join the band as a guitar player and additional composer. Kamil Ruth eventually took the role of a drummer for the band, and new compositions have been written and practiced.

Pathfinder was formed in 2006 as an initiative made by Arkadiusz E. Ruth (bass and composing). The main idea behind the band from its very beginning had been the combination of film music, classical music and a wide scope of metal. After a few years of composing alone, Ruth let Karol Mania join the band as a guitar player and additional composer. Kamil Ruth eventually took the role of a drummer for the band, and new compositions have been written and practiced. A short time later, Slavomir Belak (keyboards) and Simon Kostro (vocals) were taken in. After about six month the group began to perform live shows, now joined by Gunsen (guitar and graphic designer). In 2008 the band recorded their first demo, called "The Beginning", releasing it the same year. Their debut album "Beyond The Space, Beyond The Time" was released in 2010 under the Sonic Attack/Radtone label. At the very end of 2011/beginning of 2012 drummer Kamil Ruth left the band and drummer Kacper "Drum Kid" Stachowiak took his place. Their next album, "Fifth Element", was released in the middle of 2012 with the new drummer in place. Bartosz Ogrodowicz, originally live keyboard player, became the permanent replacement for Slavomir Belak after the latter left the band in early 2013. Later the same year vocalist Simon Kostro left the band as well, the other members saying that he was "musically burnt out and tired", though the split had been friendly and each side wished the other all the best. They are still looking for a vocalist.
