So I Heard You Like Wintersun...


Thumbs up: +2
This list aims to be the Wintersun equivalent of Lekiwi's fantastic So I Heard You Like Opeth... list (go and check that one out if you're a fan).

A lot of us around these parts are/were big fans of Wintersun. While Jari may take his sweet time writing, recording, (and let's not forget) producing albums, there are many bands that have a similar sound we can enjoy listening to while we wait for the next Wintersun release, praying that it doesn't disappoint!

This list is a collection of the best albums by those bands.

In alphabetical order and featuring 1 album per band. I will add to this list over time as I discover more.

Enjoy!

My other lists:
My Favourite Albums (ordered & rated)
My Favourite EPs (also ordered & rated)
Top 200 Overlooked Albums (with genres)
The Most Overrated Albums on MS (trigger warning)

Awesome suggestions! I'll have to check the ones I haven't heard out. Wilderun and Atavistia are great additions

Thanks! Euphoreon and Whispered are also a couple of other lesser-known gems worth checking out.

Nailed it with the Aether Realm recommendation. Found them last year and that album is incredible.

I'm gonna check some of these that are unknown to me, like Atavistia, Blind Stare or Claim The Throne. Thanks for the list!

Tarot certainly is an overlooked gem (as are a lot of albums on this list). Out of the three you mentioned, Atavistia are probably my favourite and the closest to Wintersun's sound.

Just spun Atavistia last night and I had to do a double take to make sure I wasn't listening to some Jari side-project
