How is bassius the most common poster here? They've just finished an upcoming release which was recorded at Sonic Pump Studios I'm sure, and it won't be Time II. If you think Jari is only going to make albums like 'Time' with heavy orchestrations you're wrong, have you not heard the direction of 'Forest'? That's remarkably different from anything he's done before and nothing like Time.
Wow! The time it took for Time I was expecting more. I hope it grows because the 2014 album Wintersun is a exceptional masterpiece. I don't usually like Power Metal but it is infused tastefully with other genres including melodic death metal. I still prefer 2 decent albums over many Ensiferum albums.
Я желаю амонам забросить эти рок-н-рольные эксперименты и начать играть что-то более возвышенное, например, мелодик дэт, желательно такой же красивый и атмосферный, как они умеют, я хочу снова летать от их музыки..
Well, this is straight from Teemu's facebook page (one of his comments): "The idea [a kickstarter] was put on hold until we have enough material and strong packages to offer in the crowdfunding and have figured out all the necessary contractual details. It will be a Indiegogo campaign, not a Kickstarter, and there will be plenty of news about it when it starts happening. Which hopefully will be pretty soon."
"I am excited" haha, you got trolled boy. Jaari is just playing with your feelings again. He's not releasing shit in the next couple of years (maybe more, maybe never), he's still bussy spending all of the money he milked out of his moronic fans in booze and whores.
Well after Teemu's post on Facebook that Jari and Wintersun's page both shared, I believe it's clear that there is another Wintersun album on it's way that ISN'T Time II. I am excited. Please don't let this album take 8 years to get released.
Bassius, you sure do pop in here a lot for a band you forgot.  I'm not sure wether to get too taken in to his post or not, it could just be the lyrics he was on about where there are no lines repeated with a nice background. On the other hand, taking into consideration all the photoshoots I'd like to think that something is on its way, maybe the album with 'Forest' on it? We can only speculate.
How can you all be so disrespectful of a man who is basically a god!.Shame on you.This man needs his sauna and you! As fans should be grateful that he is letting you buy that for him.It is the very least you could do after all he has given you.do not mock your master but become one with him and share your wealth.THIS from a small fan sitting in two inches of warm water,in a small cast iron cooking pot.I gratefully await my turn to share the sauna ,jari come for me :)
It's just a theory but maybe they're preparing to release other stuff soon... which could include "Forest" for example, as you said umosay, less complex to produce. And keep Time II for later... or I should stop smoking and hoping something from this band :/
v Jari actually sent me a private message saying "Since I ran out of ideas, we've been working on porno films and photoshoots. wink emoticon We hope it will yield enough profit to afford the sauna I so sorely need." So that's what they were doing...
"Like I said in 2014, TIME II was put on a shelf. There is no way to finish it without my own proper studio. Doesn´t mean there isn´t anything going on behind the scenes. You might be surprised soon. wink emoticon We are working everyday, but it is slow with our limited resources. " I know they're cooking something but it isn't Time II. Why else would they be doing photoshoots and vocal recordings.
