Morian was founded in the year 2002 by guitarist/songwriter Sami Puranen. Sami had a couple of songs and he wanted to have a band to play them with. However the permanent line-up wasn´t so easy to find and guys in the band changed several times between year 2002 and 2003. Those different line-ups made a few demo CDs and some gigs but things did'nt work out as fluently as they could have... So, in the late 2003 Morian decided to clean up the table. Because of that there were only guitarist Sami Niittykoski (ex Puranen) and bass player Jaakko Niemi in the band.
