I was shocked when I noticed that no one created a topic on Wintersun it is so strange because this band is one of the best I know...they have just released one album but this album is fucking masterpiece,
I like their songs "Death and the Healing" and "Beautiful Death" they are great songs and this band is Idol for me.

Anyone know what's the difference of these two versions: Digipak/DVD | Boxset also including the DVD

Different price and package, but is there anything else?


The box set is only available at the NUCLEAR BLAST mailorder and is limited to 500 copies. It comes in a media book with the bonus DVD, an instrumental CD, artwork card and certificate of authenticity. http://www.nuclearblast.de/en/products/tontraeger/cd/cd-boxset/wintersun-time-i-mailorder-edition.html

I think I will go with the CD/DVD version that mailorder edition is nothing really special, only that instrumental CD sounds intressting but I prefer the album with vocals. Think I will pre-order the album from Finland since the release date here in Sweden is the 17th October(don't understand why) And it's even cheapier for me to order it from Finland than ordering from the swedish webstore. Here's a link to the website http://www.recordshopx.com/artist/wintersun/time_i/#2cd

Thanks for the quote. I think this piece of text wasn't on that page before, or I just somehow missed it.


Yeah, I'm pretty sure they added the description in the last few days.

Yea, I lost a message. Summarized:

Kai Hahto is getting old. Who would replace him? Guesses, info, rumours?

Which bundle/format did you get?


Kai's not that old man. Mike Portnoy and Gene Hoglan are older than he is.

I believe he'll have no problems during these 'Time' albums and tours, but after that ( + three years?) it might get quite wearing to bash through long sets with tracks like "The Way Of The Fire", which is quite furious and technical, and what I can tell by watching the YouYube videos, "Sons of..." won't be an easy task either. The guy of course seems to be in pretty good shape and has a history with Rotten Sound etc., but there can always be injuries. I hope he can winterdrum a decade, but is it realistic?


He's only in his late 30s. I know drummers still going in their 50s. Chill.

About "Time I", I love it. I really do. "Sons of Winter and Stars" almost made me cry, probably because I got so nostalgic thinking about how it was the first time, 7-8 years ago, when me and my best friend bought the first album and absolutely loved it. That bringed forth so many emotions in me. But (!) it's not as good as the first one, and I really don't think this one needed 8 years to be made. Yeah, I know there was several factors involved. But still.
I feel I need at least one more awesome song on it, to be able to say: it's just as good as the first.

Anyone sharing experience about North-American tour? How were they compared to their studio work? Anything surprising? Making a good show?

I caught them on tour in Toronto the other night and thought they were incredible, better than the last time I saw them (back in December with Eluveitie). I prefer their self-titled to Time I. Time I just feels like it was driven by too much generic symphonic filler and not so much by interesting melodic riffs like in their first album. Maybe that stuff would've been cool and not so cliche 8 years ago when people expect that that they started writing the album. I wasn't very excited for Time II because I was expecting it to be like it's predecessor, but hearing them play Way of Fire got me looking forward to it

That sounds awesome. I'm excited to see them. My friends and I are catching the last show of the tour in North Carolina. I missed Wintersun last time, so I'm definitely looking forward to catching their headlining set.

You won't be disappointed. Even the opening bands on that tour put on amazing shows (especially Fleshgod Apocalypse) so try to show up early, get up close to the stage, and expect lots of energy from beginning to end and a sore neck the next morning When I saw Wintersun opening for Eluveitie, people went wild for them but seeing them headline is a whole other level.

I'm afraid my neck will already be sore before the show. We are seeing Iron Maiden the night before. :-P

Damn, sounds like an awesome couple of days! I saw At The Gates 2 nights before Wintersun and I almost think it was a blessing in disguise that ATG's show didn't have any opening bands worth headbanging to... I was thinking of seeing Finntroll on the night after Wintersun, but that show just took so much out of me that I wasn't feeling it at all and didn't think it'd be fair for any show to happen so soon after that one XD

They played a new song called "Forest", this is material from the album after Time II! This needs to be heared in a studio version, let's hope the crowd-funding project start soon. Jari's music is out of this world. The middle part and the riff that follows is so epic!
