Official press release:

"Sons of winter and stars - Rise!"

This short but significant excerpt of the track "Sons Of Winter And Stars" not only is the wake-up call for everyone interested in music, it's the battle cry of a band that released their self-titled debut album eight long years ago and had had to live up to the highest expectations and pressure of time for the eagerly awaited successor ever since. As Wintersun turned out to be a critically-acclaimed masterpiece of musical art, the band unintentionally found themselves facing the situation of having to out-do their previous work, and soon.

2012 it's finally time to unleash Wintersun's second full-length album Time I. Over the course of eight years the band have taken both music and visuals to yet another level and while listening to their new effort you'll be taken on a journey through the doors of time, a journey beyond the stars, beyond the birth of the worlds to an infinite universe.

Finland's epic metallers will release their long-awaited album Time I on October 12 before hitting the road in October/November headlining the so-called Heidenfest tour. Recently the band went into the studio with photographer Nana Simelius to shoot the new pictures for the upcoming album and now the breathtakingly beautiful front cover of Time I has been unveiled.

Commented the band: "We searched many options who could actually make the cover for Time I. Cameron's way of creating art was just something that stood out immediately and we feel it suited best for Jari's vision as a cover for Time I. We are really happy for the result and hopefully this collaboration continues in the future releases as well!"

My wife looked at the artwork and was like "That's really pretty" so yeah I think a lot of you are just jaded and are going to have anything this band does.

Kind of looks like someone took the cover art from Born Of Osiris' "The Discovery", then removed any sense of subtlety.

Too many shades of blue.

It'll be good regardless of whether the art sucks or not. I listen to my music not look ar it.

I like everything apart from the head and parts of the tree

I was really hoping that "The Way of the Fire" would make it onto the first part of "Time". Despite the god-awful sound of that live recording bouncing around youtube, the track is amazing.

Looks like a bad PS2 game...

Cover looks fine, people just love bashing Wintersun. It's funny that there's like 10 times more posts about annoying fanboy praise than there are posts that actually are fanboy praise.

Nope, it's just a shite cover. Nothing to do with the band.

nah, i don't care one way or another about the band, i like taking shots at their fans.

as for the cover, just seems too much is going on, too bright, and i feel like i should be wearing special safety glasses before gazing directly upon it.

had they slimmed it down and maybe limited the uber bright part to like, say, the tree, and had some sort of darker counter it might have worked better.

I call it as "timeless, ever pondering treehead having a Japanese haircut during a windy and snowy day in a middle of an electric storm in its home nebula".

nah, it's not terrible, it's just not good. It's one of those typical "Let's throw as much shit as we can on there and see how flashy the results are" artworks.
