Couple days ago WINTERSUN frontman Jari Mäenpää posted status on his Facebook page saying that “something big and amazing that will blow your mind has finally been completely finished, 100%!” Although, he didn’t reveal exactly what it is, we guess he’s talking about long-awaited Time II, follow-up to 2012’s Time I.
Here is entire Jari‘s post:
“When I announced last week that “it is done”, I did not mean that IT is done. I meant that IT is done! 😀
But seriously, after almost two years of insane amount of work (not to mention a lifetime of practicing and developing music composing, lyric writing, playing, singing, production and engineering skills etc.), something big and amazing that will blow your mind has finally been completely finished, 100%! We thought (and I’m sure you did too) that this day would never come, but it’s finally here. I feel I did the impossible! Feeling very proud and happy!
The question now though is, will it ever be released? Well it will be sooner or later, but that is yet to be determined. I have sent a long email to Nuclear Blast and we are now in negotiations with them. That’s all I can tell you right now. Keep your fingers crossed!”
Time I was originally scheduled for release in November 2006, but ended up being marred by many delays. It was released on October 19, 2012 via Nuclear Blast.
