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-)

    Realistically I think the best case scenario is to purchase a property in the countryside nearby a small village or town where the real estate is fairly cheap, maybe nearby a lake, forest or mountain. Since Jari claims to already own most of the equipment needed to turn the house into a studio, really it's mostly a matter of finding a property in the peace and quiet of the countryside in order to record without any sort of disturbing noise or neighbors. That's going to be what's needed the most, and unfortunately that's going to be very expensive. It's a matter of trying to make this a reality using as little money as possible. If you look at some Finnish real estate websites there are some properties out in the middle of nowhere for under 100'000 Euros, but something under 60'000 is more realistic budget wise. But does the studio need to be in Finland? Maybe it would be best to look for alternative, international options where property might be cheaper if at all possible?

    v Would say definitely plan on building from scratch, Jari did say 'the middle of the forest' haha. 8000 likes in one week though, I'm sure if they ran the campaign for a decent time it would get a lot of backers.

    I wondering if they are planning to build a new building for their studio or move in to a existing building. Building a new building for scratch isn't cheap for sure..

    I just hope that after this is done he can begin releasing albums on a yearly basis to make up for lost time (no pun intended).

    Yeah I think it's all or nothing for Jari at this point, like he says himself. Either the funding succeeds and everything's amazing or then it won't and I guess we won't hear much about Jari after that... :/ So when the time comes let's support him as much as we can!!

    yeah indeed. Show us the perks so we can pre-order! I hope they will get more likes and start the campaign. Seems like if it don't Wintersun will die :/

    @DesunotoK That's actually a good point. I doubt they plan on actually building a new foundation, but rather buying a pre-existing one and modifying it to work as a studio. I personally for some strange reason thought they would be building a new foundation, must be because of those photos from the movie set where they were dressed as construction workers. P.s. No need for name calling.

    Where does he say he needs a sauna? I can't find any information on that. And as for the crowdfunding situation and what Jari said about not being as productive as Devin Townsend: I remember some guys going on about it saying they can't take Jari seriously because he's asking for financial support. I remember Devin doing a crowdfunding with Casualties of Cool and everyone seemed kinda fine with it. So it appears to me with the popularity of crowdfunding possibilities it's only logical some artists want to jump on the bandwagon to fulfill their vision outside of the boundaries of a label. I might be wrong about this, but if you're not okay with investing money for upcoming projects, just let the matter rest. It doesn't seem to me that Jari is some kind of mad perfectionist that needs to bathe in a golden tub and I don't understand the sentiments some people have at all.

    I will back this with as much as I can. Don't care about the wait, obviously it will go as Jari decides and no other way around. Thought about how much time he will need to actually construct the studio but oh well.

    I agree with everything Qyaffer said

    I don't know if that whole thing with the sauna is real or not, if it is I do think that is a little far-fetched, but regardless I am upset at how people are looking at this whole thing. People are acting as though Jari is stealing money from fans but that wouldn't the case because we are investing in not only the album, but other perks as well. The bottom line is that they are going to give something in return. It is up to us as individuals to decide whether or not it's worth investing in. I would pre-buy the album + track stems because I find value in that. So people need to realize that this is not donation but rather an investment.

    It seems that he doesn't need just a studio but whole apartment including sauna, kitchen and living room... That's crazy! And how much it would really cost? 1 million? I hope that he could mix time II without the studio, otherwise, we may have to wait a few years before we get it...

    I'm going to wager on this studio helping Jari release many albums at a much faster pace. It is totally worth it in my opinion. Especially that we can actually get our hands on the stems to play with the mix, I think that alone is incredible !!!! I'm really excited for this to get going. I've waited for more Wintersun for so long, and I am willing to wait longer and give my support because I feel it is worth it.
