I just bought my copy of the new Wintersun album (it's been 1.5 months since it's been out). What a fantastic album!

I'd recommended it for anyone who is interested in smartly written Progressive Metal (Unlike the other stuff out there). It's nicely heavy and probably the best Symphonic Metal album I've heard (since their first album is more melodic metal more than symphonic metal). I hope you guys go out and buy this album!

Cheers!

Cool. Thank you so much. I've been getting back into tech/extream prog again. Started cranking OPETH and MESHUGGAH again, so I may just have to add this to my amazon shopping cart. :)
I love FINNISH metal. It's badass!
Threshold still have all the goods that makes them one of the best classic rock/Prog metal bands in the world. 2014's For The Journey is worth a serious listen.

This album is ridiculous. Like blind guardian meets alestorm meets everything awesome. It's so metal that every time I listen to it, I smile. It's like it's both very serious and a joke at the same time.

Yeah, the first album was terrible IMO and this one seems to be one of the best things 2012 has to offer, Sometimes its good that musicians give the due time to their composition process.

The first one is great in its own right. This one is way more different, as the first one was more Melodeath than anything.
