During the recording sessions of this album in early 2008, the band had to cope with yet another line-up change – once again, the drum-seat became vacant. The core crew of Before the Dawn (Tuomas, Lars, Juho) remained focused and only took some time off from studio to play at summer festivals (e.g. famous Wacken Open Air in Germany), mainly with the aid of session drummer Matti Auerkallio, later replaced by Agonizer’s Atte Palokangas. In summer 2009 Atte became an official band member.

The fifth studio album Soundscape of Silence, released 31 October 2008, once again received praise and high ratings by the European Metal press, including German RockHard Magazine. Nicely timed with the band’s 10th anniversary, Before the Dawn accompanied Amorphis on their Forging Europe Tour in autumn 2009; in 2010 they played more club and festival shows all over Europe and also visited Asia (China and Japan in May, Russia in September).
