Wintersun

Following his departure in 2002 from Finnish Viking metal outfit Ensiferum, former Arthemesia vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jari Mäenpäa started a new project called Wintersun, with drummer Kai Hahto (late of grindcore band Rotten Sound). Fusing the folk-littered influence of countrymen like Amorphis and Finntroll with the technicality, speed, and high melodic content present in neo-classical power metal, Wintersun's eponymous debut album was released in 2004 by Nuclear Blast. After eight years of virtual hibernation, Wintersun reawakened and released their sophomore album, Time I, in 2012, also on Nuclear Blast. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

the over use of keyboards is troubling to me. i like dream theater but imagine what their songs might sound like if the same sounding keyboards were removed from them.

I'm glad Jari doesn't rush his art. This is what he puts out and I'm satisfied. Time II will be flawless but the struggle is there because he has no studio.. hopefully it's out soon!

Wintersun is so deep when it comes to the lyrics. Jari also knows how to balance complexity and simplicity perfectly.

Met my wife on the way to see Wintersun play with Arsis and Fleshgod Apocalypse. That show changed my life in more ways than just meeting the most important person in the world to me, Wintersun was completely amazing, one of the best bands I've seen live

wintersun has a new album coming out eventually, not sure when exactly because that information has not been posted that i'm aware of. f**king excited though to know it because i'm going to get it when it is released.

Ensiferum is almost flawless. Wintersun IS flawless. Jari is a genius. While i still give my hard earned money to both bands. I feel Wintersun is going places and Ensiferum still sounds the same.

Jari here is a virtuoso in his own right. He even gives that stupid herman lee a run for his money when it comes to speed but Jari has WAY more style. When Time comes it will be a revolutionar y album. Its Jari's brainchild, it better be... Oh and Jari was the talent in Ensiferum, they've just been doing the same s**t since Jari left. Its like the Rolling Stones, you hear one song you've no need to hear what else they have.

COME ON TIME!!!! god I want this new album to be finished already...Ja r i , you are the definition of the word "genius".... p . s . right there with you Mike ;)

I loved Jari Mäenpäa in Ensiferum AND even more in Wintersun! God I wish I lived in Finland, escape all the Justin Bieber crap and live with the best music on the planet!

Raw, yet contemplativ e . What I just said is pure bullshit, this music is just too awesome for that kind of artsy s**t. Fantastic.
Report as inappropriate
very good stuff, i also like ensiferum a lot

Wintersun is just plain fantastic, what with the transitions in almost all the songs from sheer metal pwnage to an elegant melody, then back without a blink, it is enough to send chills down my spine. Beautiful Death and Sadness and Hate are the best progressive metal ballads I've ever heard, and the sweeps and scales played by Jari are nothing like the good old days (Ensiferum) If you doubt, listen to Winter Madness or Death and the Healing.

Glad to hear they're making another album. I love how they manage to do the melodic speed sound without being weak and cheesy like Dragonforce or Blind Guardian. These guys are savage.

Starchild is epic.

Ehh, DragonForce is more power/speed metal, Wintersun is more MeloDeath. Think early Bodom + Ensiferum.
Report as inappropriate
Yeah, like that, but way, way cooler.

almost like children of bodom and dragonforce mixed, nawmeen?
