Wintersun - Time I Review

Wintersun - Time I (Nuclear Blast) Review

Welläenpää's new starchild.
After a real odyssey , Time I is finaly out via Nuclear Blast Records.
From the first week this album faced a massive success with entries on international
charts worldwide.
Ok let's go now in the review details.

To be honest ,I was waiting a sequel of the first album,something technical. 
The result was the opposite. Time I has nothing almost mutual with the debut album.
But this doesn't means that this album is not a Wintersun's pure material.
I will do this review track by track.
when time fades awayOne song full of emotions. A warm album's "welcoming".
A track inspired by some Southern melodies and in my opinion one of the greatest instrumental songs ever written by a person.

sons of winter and stars: This song contains 4 other songs which are "Rain of Stars","Surrounded By Darkness" , Journey Inside A Dream","Sons of Winter And Stars". I want to avoid the many "sauce" arround this track. I have to say that this song is one of the most EPIC songs ever written. Amazing out-cosmic riffs and melodies . 
The highlight of the song is the choir .
Don't forget to include that in this song there are many guest musicians .
Those musicians are : Markus Toivonen (Ensiferum), Sami Hinkka (Ensiferum) , Mathias Nygård (Turisas) ,Olli Vänskä (Turisas) , Jukka-Pekka Miettinen (Turisas) , Heri Joensen (Týr) , Mikko Salovaara (Kiuas) .

land of snow and sorrow
: A track that has to remind tracks such as "sleeping stars" or "death and the healing". Slower tempo , full of melodies . Just close your eyes and imagine that you are in a realm of ice . A hint . Listen this song again and again if you don't like it in the first time. As Jari said , this album is gonna be a "difficult" album.

darkness and frost
: Darkness and frost is the second instrumental song of the album. Maybe some of you that you have been in the recent Wintersun's concert , may remember this song from the instrumental intro before the song "beyond the dark sun". 

: The song of the album that will leave you with a bitter sweet taste. May remind you some people that you have lost already. But this song made me curious to listen the next time album .
For me this is the best song of the album with
sons of winter and stars.
The highlight is the instrumental melody and Jari's vocals during the chorus. 

Points : 9/10

The album is out now worldwide in compact -disc case , in limited edition mediabook , on itunes and in blue-signed vinyl.
Be sure to buy the album from the link bellow.
Don't forget that this band can't continue on creating new stuff without our financial support as money is the ruler of the world now.
