19:15 The board relocates itself from the lounge into a closed cabinet with sound- proofing.
19:25 H. Sorvali introduces new material for the board. It is noted that some of the excerpts carry a slight resemblance on a competing foreign product, and need to be re- iterated before a possible launch campaign. Harvilahti threatens to leave the board if he is once more exposed to "those fucking same old temp- vocals in every fucking song". The board evaluates the concerns and threat and decides to remove them from the test environment.
20:30 Multiple tests, variations and approaches are performed on "Vanhaliitto_Ritual".

22:20 Eurén´s lack of participation in social media is taken into discussion. It is vouched to create him an account of his own despite of Eurén´s protest. The board listens to Demoniac´s "Myths of Metal" on high volume for research and development purposes. It is noted that the board members have left window and curtains on the road open, and a question is raised whether the rather controversial imagery and incorrect hand gestures are visible to the street. The board decides to play the song once more.

0:45 The board votes for switching into another document instead. "Out of the Black" is chosen. The board takes a note that they have no knowledge on the bands in the documentary.

Harvilahti wins. It is voted 4-1 that all the bottles will be shared equally. A great comparison between Hades´ "Alone Walkyng" cassette demo and the repressed CD is made. Eurén brings out the subject of "The Pulse of Decay". Sarcastic laughter is heard. Eurén disgruntles.
