    INCREDIBLE power/folk/melodic death metal band from Finland, formed in 2004. The lead singer is Jari Mäenpää, who is the former lead singer of Ensiferum, which Wintersun where only supposed to be a side project but thank goodness they weren't and they became what they are now because they are amazing. Their self titled album is the best, imo.


    Studio Albums

    Wintersun (2004)
    Time I (2012)
    Time II (2013)







    Anyone else a fan of this incredible band?

    ^^...lol. Have to agree Taha, I just don't get the growling vocals some bands feel they have to use, but Foxy has introduced me to some bands from the Doom genre that were decent.

    These guys aren't doom, lol. Doom music doesn't have a lot of growling. Doom is more Black Sabbath - ish.


    The growls take some getting used to.

    Even for someone who listened to black, death, doom and all other metal for years it's pretty hard to put genre's to the bands.. Imagine how hard it must be for LG :lmao:

    *bump*

    FINALLY, it's reported on their site that their new album will be out in 2012.

    This better happen. We've waited long enough.

    I <3 this band so much
    My favourite band, I just love every single part of every single song
    Like a really good long kiss with that person you love to bits

    Sleeping Stars and Beautiful Death are my favourites.
