During 2012 the band entered the studio and recorded the new album from April to August. The album was mixed by Sami Koivisto in September and mastered by Virtalähde Mastering in October that same year. After a while Hilastherion acquired a deal with the label Die and Gain Records to finally release the new album “Signs of the End” in May 2014.

Shortly after the demo was finished in August 2006, Niclas wanted to start recording the album. To begin the band got help from Jani Stefanovic (Divinefire, Miseration, Solution .45) with the drums. After receiving these great drum backing tracks, Hilastherion started recording the album in Niclas' Home studio. In February 2007 all recordings were finished and the band established collaboration with the musician and sound engineer Torbjörn Weinesjö (Veni Domine) to mix the songs in his studio in Sollentuna, Sweden. This cooperation turned out really well and the debut album was finally mastered in Vaasa, in early March by Sami "Hannu" Koivisto (who has worked with Amorphis, Norther, Waltari). The band got a deal for their debut album through the Finnish label Maanalainen Levykauppa and a release date in November the same year was set.
Recorded during May 2006 - January 2007 at Niclas' ministudio, Finland. Mixed at Room of Doom, Sollentuna, Sweden. Mastered in March 2007 at Midas Studios, Karperö, Finland.
