Biografia

I Wintersun (“sole invernale” in italiano) sono una band melodic death metal con influenze viking e folk finlandese, fondata nel 2004 da Jari Mäenpää, ex-frontman degli Ensiferum.

Inizialmente i Wintersun erano stati concepiti come side-project di Jari, ma il tour europeo degli Ensiferum coincidette con la data della registrazione dell’album Wintersun. Jari fu quindi costretto a scegliere tra i Wintersun e gli Ensiferum; scelse i primi e per questo si vide obbligato a lasciare gli Ensiferum alle spalle.

L’album Wintersun venne prodotto da Jari Mäenpää stesso, con l’ausilio del batterista Kai Hahto; Jari si è occupato invece di chitarra, basso, tastiere e voce. Il 13 settembre 2004 venne rilasciato l’album Wintersun sotto etichetta Nuclear Blast Records. Nel 2006 venne ripubblicato l’album della band, commercializzato assieme ad un DVD contenente una prestazione live al Summer Breeze del 2005.

La band cominciò la registrazione del loro successivo album dal titolo “Time” ai Sonic Pump Studios nel maggio 2006; la fase di mixaggio era prevista per l’autunno 2006 ma venne posticipata a maggio 2007. Nell’aprile del 2007 venne operato un ulteriore posticipo, e la pubblicazione del secondo album del gruppo venne fissata al 2011. Finalmente il 17 Ottobre 2012 uscì tramite Nuclear Blast Records il nuovo disco “Time I”, mentre il seguito “Time II” uscirà ad aprile 2013.

Componenti:
Jari Mäenpää - Voce, Chitarra, Tastiere (2004-)
Teemu Mäntysaari - Chitarra (2005-)

    Qyaffer, Nightwith is nothing without Tarya. It's so pop now.

    He said he's not going to leave StS but he won't be able to play live, probably a similar thing with Wintersun, he won't actually leave.

    What about Swallow the Sun? He just recorded the last album, or is he going for stages with them?

    I think for Kai it might be (this is pure speculation on my part of course) a combination of schedule problems and the general direction Jari's projects seem to be heading to. I'm telling you, Kai Hahto is a very blue collar, doing-the-dirty-work kinda guy who is all about the music. It's probably not so much about what pays better although that may be a nice bonus.

    I'm sure being in Nightwish pays much MUCH better than being in Wintersun. Also probably more enjoyable considering Wintersun is very relatively inactive.

    Do you guys really think Kai can leave Wintersun? D:

    Yeah :S Especially his "new music in 2015? hmm..." comment, that's a killer... let alone wait for a studio to be built. He also said he's working on music every day so I really have to wonder what, given he supposedly can't work in those conditions. I mean, SURELY he can find an alternative to finish Time II first at least, it's like reamping guitars is a space mission or something.

    Yeah, I wish all the best for Kai. He's a phenomenal drummer and deserves recognition, as well as being one of the most friendly and down-to-earth musicians you'll ever meet. If he leaves, I wonder what they'll do about the gigs that are scheduled for next year, hmm... It's really sad that only a year ago it seemed like WS is back on track and coming alive: tours were going very well, Time II was said to be out surely in 2014, everyone was having fun. They were like a real band, not just Jari and some session musicians... And now the band has fallen back to silence, starting to fall apart even. It's like a dying body laying somewhere unnoticed, desperately gasping for the last breaths before falling inevitably to oblivion. haha...

    New Year's Eve is quite precise :lol: Wouldn't be surprised if Kai at least couldn't tour - NW tours go for years, but he deserves the big stage... and playing NW is a lot nicer on his body than the rigors of Wintersun.

    Good and bad news coming on New Year's Eve. Kai leaves the band for Nightwish?

    It's not a donation... think he made that pretty clear.

    I'd donate if he let me stay at the house whenever I wanted to, for however long I want. Co-signer and all that.

    Having long since grown out of enjoying this kind of schmaltzy metal, I have to say it's pretty ridiculous what Maenpaa is asking from his fanbase. The man needs to go "work at the post office"/ get a real job, save up over time, and then realistically try to bring his musical aspirations to life with whatever means he has (countless bands have made better music with much less). It will be ludicrously entitled and delusional if they actually go through with asking for a "personal studio/ sauna" (which doesn't even confirm the creation/ release of any new music).
