The time has come to listen to the new Wintersun album. The long awaited and extremely over-due Time I is finally here. You can stream the album exclusively and in its entirety at the band's official website. Time I is Wintersun's second album and it will see its first release on October 19th, in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Finland and Norway under Nuclear Blast.

Apparently, the streaming server is having some problems and it might not stream right away. The trick is to wait a bit until it loads properly.

IT BEGINS!
Warman - 17.10.2012 at 17:28  
Nah, I'll rather wait till Friday when it arrives in my mail.

Oh hi there Time I Cover Artwork! Looking hideous as ever I see.
Dark†SymphonY - 17.10.2012 at 17:57  
I actually preferred the fake cover of the album. Only listened to one song and sounds really overblown and too... Nightwish. I do hope this is doesn't disappoint.

I agree about the overblown part, also if Nightwish and Whispered had a bastard child who had ADHD, it would be like Wintersun - Time I (at least the intro and Sons of Winter And Stars).

Land of Snow and Sorrow is better and less overblown, but I'm not yet feeling that Wintersun awesomeness I'm used to from their debut album. This one needs at least a dozen spins until I'll give my final judgement.
Cynic Metalhead - 17.10.2012 at 18:36  
I shut you all to stop criticizing about this wonderful cover art. Well, as long as my girlfriend likes it...I LIKED IT TOO.

I repeat.....It's a good artwork.
Marcel Hubregtse - 17.10.2012 at 18:42  
Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles can even see this is hideous artwork.

nope, there are way worse around. But it certainly is totally horrendous.

Background vocals and huge epicness doesn't have to be connected with nightwish, I don't like this comparation...just enjoy brand new Wintersun with bonus sounds and melodies you wouldn't expect!

Same here, the mayan one COULD have been a good artwork if it weren't for the over-the-top delivery. This one has no possibility of salvation.
opeth771 - 17.10.2012 at 19:51  
The mixing is awful, but it is still a pretty good album. The first song though feels like a way too long intro and parts seems to have been copy-pasted all over 4mins. Can't wait for the second part which is said to have epic guitar solos

Damnit Juri just stream it on Soundcloud, don't be so fucking autistic all the time. God this guy can't even stream the album without screwing it up.

LOL I don't want to jump on the hatebandwagon here but it's actually pretty funny how historically everything has conspired against him in the case of this album. Either that or he's just a major screw-up who should just stick to making music
musclassia - 17.10.2012 at 21:29  
I really want to listen to the stream, but this stupid website is so useless I can't even listen to the first note; which idiot decided this was a good idea?

Jari is such a troll.....The only fuction of that page is to see how many people will click the play button and how long they will wait for the stream to start
In5anity - 17.10.2012 at 23:33  
Worked for me after a while. Between all this epicness I kind of missed the songs.

Everything about this album is bullshit. Album Art, Stream, Epic delay, etc.... Except the music.

I did it for the exact same reason. Probably a 7/10 from me; the intro was boring, the riffs aren't memorable, there were (almost) no solos... although I think it was well produced and with further listens it might become somewhat interesting to listen, but it hardly reaches an 8 in my case.

Nope I'd say he is a lying b****** and nothing went wrong he was just lazy assed and didn't record a thing at the time. And this so-called fuck up with the stream is him trying to convince people he is bad with technology

CONSPIRACY I DECLARE! But yeah, I never kept up with his reasons for delaying the album, i just assumed he was being lazy.

I would say it's both, Time is cursed, and Time 2 will take another short decade to see release, February 2013 my ass
and Jarii i think is technologically incompetent. Get Devin Townsend, Jim Morris or Saschae Paeth to do the production work next time, cuz you obviously take WAY to damn long...
Tristus Scriptor - 18.10.2012 at 06:30  
Approached this out of sheer curiosity fueled by boredom, half expecting to listen for a few minutes, and then click off of it- still bored (since I'm very selective about ultra-melodic extreme metal). And then, to my surprise, I wasn't; so I didn't. I actually love it. Didn't want to jump on either side of the Wintersun obsession...I still believe I haven't joined the silliness, yet happy to have found something new to enjoy.

Hmm, good point.
They're both bad (really bad) though, no need to choose the lesser of two evils, since we can hate them both .

FreddeSwede - 18.10.2012 at 09:14  
I've been listening to this album since Sunday and now, after 15 laps of spinning, I have to admit this is a one of a kind band. Who just created another one of a kind album. The fact that some bands can get away with evolving and changing style, and still be able to get us (the listeners) interested and spellbound is a rare feature. I'm pretty sure "Time 2" will sound different and make a turn yet again. This is what great musicians do, since it proves that they are good listeners as well. It's easy to say that you're influenced by this and that, but it doesn't mean that you're actually listening and being able to transform that inspiration into a product of your own.

Wintersun is definitely a band that will make a huge mark in "metal history", and I'm sure it will not be a dent.

Except the music.


They sucked at quality level. I heard some downtune of sounds in between of the songs on their official website which was annoying. "Sons of Winter and Stars" I think it's a pretty decent track but then poor sound quality made my mood to switch it over. It's for sure that this album was made in haste.

Chinese Democracy came after so many years and still sounds SHITTY as FUCK! Why it can't be this?

It's not necessary albums that are made after many years has to be on good sound quality or atleast a BETTER ALBUM. The problem with this album is in quality and I really didn't like that fucking downtune shit that was in between songs. Second, repetitive.... like in INTRO...it's stretched alot and that can be seen in some of their songs too. It's certainly made in fucking haste man.

All in all, this record is satisfactory blown out.

I never said it couldn't be a shitty album, I just said if it's a shitty album it wasn't because it was made with haste. It clearly took them a long time so it wasn't rushed. If it's shitty, it's for other reasons, like bad song writing.
