|Wintersun - Time Updates|
2012-05-29 by Thomas Michael Morris | 53 Comments
Finnish melodic-power-death-black-fairy metal band Wintersun have released another update on their highly-anticipated sophomore record. Time is now set to be released as a double album, with the first disc tentatively scheduled to be released in the early fall of 2012. The band left this update on their webside of May 29, 2012:
Time for some album(s) news. Wintersun's Time is going to be two albums, titled TIME I & TIME II. We made this decision simply because of few reasons:
- All the 80min of material won't fit on a regular CD and we didn't want to cut anything out.
- We want you to be able to hear new material sooner and not wait any longer and we want to go on tour sooner.
- The music is very full and complex, so listening this kind of "hard listening (not easy listening)" material straight for 80 minutes is a bit too much (even for me). Both albums will be approx. nice 40 min epic packages of fireworks.
- We like the idea of releasing two albums within one year, so the band will stay more visible longer, which is important in these "modern times." No more years of silence for us!
We hope you'lll approve our new little "plan" and support us when the "Time" comes!
The track listing for TIME I looks like this:
1. When Time Fades Away
2. Sons of Winter and Stars
I Rain of Stars
II Surrounded by Darkness
III Journey Inside a Dream
IV Sons of Winter and Stars
3. Land of Snow and Sorrow
4. Darkness and Frost
TIME I mix is set to be finished by July, mastered in the beginning of July and released in early fall of 2012! TIME II will be released in 2013. Conception of album artworks, videos, live shows incl. rehearsals will keep us busy during the summer and I'll also continue mixing TIME II meanwhile. We'll be hopefully posting some videos and teasers during summer. Also some new live show announcements soon, so stay tuned for those!
We can't wait for you guys to hear TIME I material and play it to you live! Have a great summer!

so glad I heard about wintersun in 2010. I would have given up on them, had I been a fan since 2004
This is destined to be disappointing.
But I'm holding out that it'll be awesome.
Digging: Cormorant - Dwellings
Will probably give this a shot when it comes out.

Too epic and complex to fit onto one album.
It's that good.

"Will probably give this a shot when it comes out."
*Will give this a shot when it comes out.[fix]
I'll be waiting
It will probably be good, but won't meet the ridiculously high expectations.
I wonder if they kept the Japanese folk influences.
Keeping my fingers crossed for this. Desperately wishing for this to be damn good.
Best day of my life.
The mixing studio will burn down and they'll have to start over from scratch.
Digging: Sunwolf - Beholden To Nothing And No One
And then everyone is killed and they won't be able to start over

Listened to the debut all the time in Grade 9. I think my expectations have gotten way too high.

"Finnish melodic-power-death-black-fairy metal band Wintersun"
two albums almost makes up for the 8 year's wait.
It won't live up to the hype.
Digging: Ulver - Messe I.X-VI.X

Digging: Unjust - Glow
Digging: Gal Costa - Gal Costa
Ahem that's Finnish Melodic PowerFolkDeath Post-Progressive Black Fairy Jazz Metal band Wintersun get

Heard of them in 2008. Time has turned into metal's own Chinese Democracy if you ask me.

Wow Great News
"in regards to this news
its about time"
I haven't heard Wintersun's first, so I have a limited amount of hype/expectations for this, which may prove to be a good thing
Am still looking forward to it
Digging: Naked City - Radio
Now we need news on "The Path to Naught"
Will be the best album(s) ever
