WINTERSUN

The amazing artwork from the self-titled debut album "Wintersun", courtesy of

Necrolord already gives

you a hint where this act might come from, exactly, Finland! Hailing

from the land of the thousand lakes

where the winters are long and cold, WINTERSUN is the new project of singer an

d multi instrumentalist

Jari Mäenpäa, who recently left his former band ENSIFERUM.

Powerful and majestic with a lot of energy, the music of WINTERSUN mainl

y flows with great melodies

influenced by folk and Scandinavian traditional music. If you enjoy band

s like AMORPHIS (in their early

days), CHILDREN OF BODOM, FINNTROLL or ENSIFERUM, "Wintersun" is the

right choice for you!

Lyrically the album deals with mastermind Jari's life, feelings, emot

ions, hallucinations and dreams, facts

that make the record a very personal piece of work. Beside Jari, drummer Kai Hahto

from the Finish

Grindcore/Death Metal band ROTTEN SOUND playes on "Wintersun" and provi

ded the album with a

hellish pummelling in all of the right parts. The rest

vocals, guitars, bass and programming

was done

completely by the perfectionist Mäenpäa.

They both managed to create a diversified song spectrum from speed metal tracks over h

eavy guitar

tracks to bombastic mid tempo opuses. While fast songs like opener 'Beyond T

he Dark Sun' and 'Winter

Madness' stress out the high technical abilities of WINTERSUN, epic songs wi

th big choruses like

'Sleeping Stars' and 'Death And The Healing' show the unique feeling

of Jari for emotional and

melancholic melodies. The vocals always fit perfectly to the present m

ood

Jari masters everything, no

matter if you take melodic clean vocals, brutal screams or Viking-like ch

ants. Currently WINTERSUN are

searching for band members to be able to play live concerts. And you can

be sure: As soon as Jari and

Kai have completed their line-up, you'll get a pure feast of Finish Metal

also on stage! WINTERSUN is

epic Melodic Death Metal once more over the top!

The band wanted to increase their success after the release of "Wintersun" with a new albu

m. After a

few years of hard work on new material the album

͞

Time I

͟

was released in October 2012. Because of

the very extensive elements, the whole works of the

͞

time saga

͟

is split in the two individual albums"

Time I" and "Time II".

Now - after another 5 years - WINTERSUN return with their 3rd studio album

entitled »The Forest

Seasons«. Its release is accompanied by a massive crowdfunding campaign the ban

d set up to finance

their planned WINTERSUN headquarters. After finishing this Indiegogo campaig

n with an impressive

amount of several hundreds of thousands euros, the band also confirmed their new

guitar player Asim

Searah, who will play his live debut at this year

s summer festivals.
