WINTERSUN @ The Garage

August 1st, 2013

Wintersun

@ The Relentless Garage, Islington

16th July 2013

Review by Victoria Fenbane

Photography by Michelle Murphy

Wintersun brought their Finnish melodic death metal to the UK/Ireland for a seven city tour, kicking off in London, in the middle of a heat wave.  A 30 minute delay to the headline set, provides a welcome opportunity to cool down in the air-conditioned side bar, escaping the sold out venue itself, which is without even a hint of air-con and thus unbearable when at its 650 capacity.

HELLFEST 2013

July 17th, 2013

Hellfest Festival 2013

@ Clisson, France

21st- 23rd June 2013

Review by Kirsty Birkett-Stubbs
Photography by Tess Donohoe  Hellfest

It may be some people’s epitome of hell, Michael Buble fans I’m looking at you, but for the metal/rock community Hellfest’s towering gateway looks positively pearly. This year’s line-up is so jam-packed that I was looking for the little glass jars and labels. You’d make a fortune if you could bottle any number of the diverse scope of bands on the bill, with the riffs left in natch, but I’d like them to play their sets first.

Once inside that gateway the layout is much the same as last year, and that isn’t meant in a well-they-clearly-couldn’t-be-arsed sense, because Hellfest could teach most others a thing or 20 on how to put together a fan-friendly festival. Except when it comes to the number of toilets on site that is.

Whilst the Hellfest tree still dominates in its stark simplicity, the hidden beer gardens have gained a snazzy gateway of their own, which invites you into the woodlands. Instead of a fairytale monster at the end of the path though, you’ll find a winebar, which is win-win really. And at night the scrap-metal merch stands and bars still glow with their own rooftop fires.

Stage-wise we’ve got Main Stage 1 and 2, which continue their staggered times so that as one plays, the other sets up, and vice versa. The result is no waiting around for soundchecks or bands to start, just back-to-back bam-bam-bam metal. A similar set-up is in place at the Altar and the Temple, where you can find black metal, death metal and the like, then there’s the Valley which is home to the stoner and doom types, and the Warzone where the punk and hardcore drops.

Hellfest 2013 – it’s like being welcomed home.

WINTERSUN Unveil Cover Artwork for “Time I”

August 17th, 2012
Wintersun TIME I

Wintersun TIME I

This short but significant excerpt of the track “Sons of Winter And Stars” is the battle cry of a band that released their self-titled debut album eight long years ago. WINTERSUN has had to live up to the highest expectations and pressure of time for the eagerly awaited successor ever since. As Wintersun turned out to be a critically-acclaimed masterpiece, the band unintentionally found themselves facing the situation of having to out-do their previous work.

It’s 2012 and it´s finally time to unleash WINTERSUN´s second full-length album Time I. Over the course of eight years the band has taken both their music and visuals to yet another level. While listening to their new effort you´ll be taken on a journey through the doors of time, beyond the stars, beyond the birth of the worlds, to an infinite universe.

Recently the band went into the studio with photographer Nana Simelius to shoot the new pictures for the upcoming album and now the breathtakingly beautiful front cover of Time I has been unveiled. Artwork was created this time by Cameron Gray (BORN OF OSIRIS, DEAD LETTER CIRCUS).

Commented the band:

“We searched many options who could actually make the cover for Time I. Cameron´s way of creating art was just something that stood out immediately and we feel it suited best for Jari´s vision as a cover for Time I. We are really happy for the result and hopefully this collaboration continues in the future releases as well!”

WINTERSUN: Album Update & Track Listing

May 29th, 2012
WINTERSUN

WINTERSUN

Finland´s WINTERSUN have released the following update regarding their long-awaited second album. Vocalist/guitarist Jari Mäenpää recently issued the following statement:

 

“Hello friends!

 

Time for some album(s) news. WINTERSUN ‘s Time is going to be two albums, titled TIME I and TIME II. We made this decision simply because of few reasons:

 

A)     All the 80 minutes of material won´t fit on a regular CD and we didn´t want to cut anything out.

 

B)      We want you to be able to hear new material sooner and not wait any longer and we want to go on tour sooner.

 

The music is very full and complex, so listening to this kind of hard listening (not easy listening) material straight for 80 minutes is a bit too much (even for me). Both albums will be approximately nice 40 minunte epic packages of fireworks.

 

We like the idea of releasing two albums within one year, so the band will stay more visible longer, which is important in these modern times. No more years of silence for us!

 

We hope you´ll approve our new little plan and support us when the Time comes!

 

TIME I mix is set to be finished by July, mastered in the beginning of July and released in early fall of 2012! TIME II will be released in 2013. Conception of album artworks, videos, live shows including rehearsals will keep us busy during the Summer and I´ll also continue mixing TIME II meanwhile. We´ll be hopefully posting some videos and teasers during Summer. Alsos some new live show announcements soon, so stay tuned for those!

 

We can´t wait for you guys to hear the TIME I material and to play it for you live! Have a great Summer!”
