Author Arto Mäenpää - 15.3.2024

On 12 January 2024, Wintersun announced on its social media that “Time II” is finally, after over 10 years, “100%” complete, and revealed in February that the album will be released on August 30th via Nuclear Blast Records. Along with the physical CDs and vinyl, the band will also be releasing a digital package titled “Time Package” containing a lot of cool digital perks for the fans, such as over 50 tracks of unreleased early Wintersun music written by Jari before the band’s debut album was released in 2004.

The band’s mastermind Jari Mäenpää visited our studio in Helsinki, Finland earlier this week to discuss what led to the completion of “Time II” and what is the current situation with the four other albums the band has in the works at the moment.
