Wintersun songs Product Information
Wintersun album for sale by Wintersun was released Oct 05, 2004 on the Nuclear Blast (USA) label. At first glance, a Finnish heavy metal band named Wintersun, whose album cover shows a fallen warrior lying face down in the snow, might elicit thoughts of simplistic black metal infused with pagan or anti-Christian messages, but it doesn't take long for this eponymous debut to prove that first impressions can be deceiving. In fact, the new project of former Ensiferum and Arthemesia vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jari Mäenpäa merges the hyper-fast precision of Yngwie Malmsteen-like guitar playing (witness the speedy "Beyond the Dark Sun") with the melodic sensibilities of post-Helloween power metal (see the more diverse "Winter Madness") and a homegrown passion for folk-styled songwriting descended straight from trailblazing compatriots Amorphis. Wintersun CD music contains a single disc with 8 songs. ...See Full Description

||Very Solid Album|
I will first pre-qualify the 3 star(really 3.5) rating due as this is not really my cup of tea. So if you like this STYLE,you may give it a 4 or 5.

Former Ensiferum vocalist/guitarist breaks out to do his own project. Some of the songs can be bit too fast-paced and frenetic at times, but there are some very good melodies and excellent rhythm guitar, and Jari's growling and clean vocals are in fine form... definitely looking forward to future material.

||amazing guitar playing!!!!|
Some of the songs on this album are just incredible and the guitar is so good that you are almost annoyed when he starts singing and the solos fade away.
