Wintersun - Crowdfunding Campaign An Enormous Success

On March 1st, Wintersun opened up a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo in order to raise money for their own studio and third album, The Forest Seasons. In the first nine days, they flew past the initial 150,000 euro goal set by the band. The campaign resulted in Wintersun raising 428,310 euro, equal to about 456,625 US dollars, by March 31st. Contributors to the campaign will be getting The Forest Seasons, including previous Wintersun albums, instrumentals, and isolated tracks off Time 1.5 (Time I remastered) and The Forest Seasons, for the 50 euros ($53.31) that the band was asking.

According to them, Indiegogo congratulated Wintersun for the second highest funded music campaign on Indiegogo of all time. (Second only to a music-based product that raised around $1.6M).

The money contributed will be used to fund future album productions and allow the band to construct their own headquarters for recording future albums and releases, including the completion of the long awaited Time II. (We'll also get to see more videos of Jari shredding and maybe sometimes in his underwear, which basically puts every other shredder to shame).

The Forest Seasons is expected to be released in July of this year.

If they actually deliver the album in July, than good on them. From what I've heard of the teased music it sounds pretty sick so I'll be on board if it actually gets released.

But I have a feeling that the album will be delayed in order to be "remastered" in the new fantasy studio, which in itself will be delayed for years and years due to easily surmountable obstacles and the typical amusing yet mind numbingly annoying Jari bullshit.
pewpew.. gotcha

I've seen bands crowdfunding records and they delivered in style. I wish Jari should be in stress that they lived up to the expectations of fans or else it would be really bad if new studio gets vandalized. You never know.

I'll look forward to new material...

My problem with this is that I don't trust Jari at all. It sounds like he's setting up to ask more money in the future.

However, I don't care if people want to give them 1000 euros. It's their money

Jealous kids please leave fucking Jari in peace. There's a deal - you want to hear more of Wintersun - support them - you do not wish to - go and spend money somewhere else - weed, alcohol etc. if you have any. Do not boro from parents boy. I certainly spend me honestly earned money and do not feel raped because (NOW FUCKING LISTEN BOY) I wish to do so. So simple - some people have talent and dreams - ask other people to fulfill these dreams - CLEAR DEAL. They are not deducting this money from your taxes like others do.
