Finland-based epic metallers WINTERSUN will release their second album, Time I, on October 12th via Nuclear Blast, prior to hitting the road in October/November headlining the Heidenfest tour.
During the listening session for Time I at the Nuclear Blast HQ in Donzdorf, Germany on July 28th, Jari Mäenpää was interviewed by BLEEDING RED frontman Timo Joos, who asked the Wintersun mastermind fan questions that had been collected via the official Nuclear Blast Europe Facebook page.

The video footage below from the listening session shows the first impressions of the international press:
Wintersun recently went into the studio with photographer Nana Simelius to shoot the new pictures for the upcoming album.
Commented the band: "Looking for the photographer for Time I we went through many photographers' portfolios, but looking at Nana's portfolio we instantly knew she had that extra something that would fit well with our new mix of oriental and traditional winter styles. She was very inspired with our ideas so we were really happy to work with her. We drove down to Turku (200 km away from Helsinki) where the photoshoot took place in her studio. We were shooting all day and the result turned out to be amazing, thanks to Nana's talent and vision, but also her stylists and assistants! We aimed for a magical winter and oriental look and we think we succeeded perfectly."
