    Jesus fuck, this intro is endless, 6/8 epic eastern-tinged synth orchestral buildup, I GET IT

    EDIT: Finally, here we go, now this is pretty fucking cool

    This is fucking cool but I'm not sure if it warranted an 8 year wait. :lol:

    I'm listening to it at the moment, I have absolutely no Wintersun knowledge except a few songs here and there, so I'm all fresh on this listening. So far it sounds good but as you say I'm not sure it's worth an 8 years wait !

    I dig the (now) old school riffing. I'd just like if they, at least once, used a note out of their minor/major scale !

    love this! epic. would really like to hear a version with the drums mixed a little higher and the orchestral stuff down a little bit, and the drums themselves sound suspiciously like DKFH.

    the clean(ish?) vocal parts are AWESOME.

    Compared to the self-titled this is a pretty big letdown, both music and mix-wise. Gonna have to spin it for a few more listens.

    While I can't really say the album isn't GOOD, I just don't care much anymore. I grew out of Wintersun/melodeath in general like 5 years ago.

    Also too much Disney orchestra.

    Maybe it's too early in the morning and I need some coffee, or I'm missing something completely obvious, but when I go to that link there is nothing anywhere to actually stream the album...

    It's on spotify also now.

    Terrible mix and those "drums" sound even worse/buried. As said sounds very much like DKFH.

    Did Jari mix this himself?


    Ermz should have mixed this. Would've been very cool.

    Yup, they've removed it saying now it's available, but iTunes still has the mp3's listed as preorders, wtf :mad::mad::mad:

    Personally, I listened to the fuck out of the stream yesterday morning/early afternoon and loved it, then after bought and listened to the first album for the first time (I know, shoot me) - tbh, I find it (the debut) cool but kinda boring, very predictable chord progressions IMO and excessive neoclassical wanking which I've never liked, I think he matured a huge amount as a songwriter since then (especially since some of the songs on the first album were written before 2000)
