WINTERSUN mainman Jari Mäenpää has issued an update on album(s) he is working on at the time.

He wrote on social media: “Guys, I am working on an album, several in fact, like I’ve updated you many times and will keep updating. One of these albums is coming along nicely and it’s a strong possibility it’s going to be the next one. This album is way bigger production than The Forest Seasons and it presents whole new challenges for me vocally, guitar playing and production wise. Even song writing wise, ’cause as you know I like learn and explore different composition styles and not write the same stuff over and over again, which would be easy.

“So I have to (and want to) constantly evolve and get better in every way. Development and learning new skills takes time. Many of these new challenges I’ve already conquered and I’m very happy with the results, some challenges still are ahead, but we are close to victory. And as WINTERSUN fans you guys already know that I am not going to release anything until I’m completely happy with it. And I’m guessing you wouldn’t want me to do that either, to release something unfinished. So just relax and enjoy the ride, I have a plan!”

And as it’s usually happens, fans started questioning about WINTERSUN‘s long-awaited album, Time II, to which Jari responded to one fan (the comments seems to have been deleted since, but you can see screenshot below): “Already stated in 2014 that I’ve stopped working on TIME II and I kept my word! Haven’t worked on it one bit since then. I’m a man of my word.

Back in 2012, WINTERSUN put out their first LP in eight years, Time I, and said Time II would be out in around half a year after the launch. Nevertheless, thirteen years have now gone by and there is still no sign of Time II.
