Masterpieces and endless album delays: The story of Wintersun

Author Arto Mäenpää - 1.11.2023

While it is an incredibly niche and frequently misunderstood genre elsewhere, in Finland metal is one of the most popular types of music, and the genre is even played on mainstream radio stations. Finland has more heavy-metal musicians per capita than any nation on Earth: 53.5 per 100,000 people. Even then-US President Barack Obama noted the cultural significance of heavy metal music in Finland at the 2016 Nordic Summit.

We at Chaoszine have decided to start doing small and informative band documentaries of Finnish bands which have made their way also outside Finland and the seventh band we are presenting through the series is Wintersun. The band despite taking a lot of time making albums is one of the most wellknown Finnish bands outside Finland.
