I understand that, but as you said yourself, for their first album in years, why not do more?

Not to mention if Time II ALSO has 10 minutes of interlude tracks they easily could have cut out all those tracks and released an epic ass 60 - 70 minute record.

I've listened to it quite a bit at work yesterday and its grown a little on me. But its just not up to par with their legendary S/T album.

Again, i'm not making final judgements until part 2 is out. I'm viewing this as half an album.

What I find most odd is how 'The Way of the Fire' isn't on this one, as they played it live last year.

This was the original track list:

1. When time fades away

2. Sons of winter and stars

3. Land of snow and sorrow

4. Darkness and frost

5. Time

6. Way of the fire

7. Storm

8. Silver leaves

9. Outro

So unless he writes more songs, Time II will have 4 songs, and one (Outro) probably guaranteed instrumental song.

Liking it so far. Listened to it all the way through twice. It's different from the first album but the Wintersun sound is there. Time is my favorite track.

Is it just me or does When Time Fades Away sound like a Japanese version of the Game of Thrones theme song?

If you look into anything about the album, Jari mentions a lot that the album has Japanese influence, especially the first song.

After some Festival- and Summer show announcements we thought we might also give you a heads up regarding TIME II.

2012 was a really great year for us, the release of TIME I was a huge success and we did two successful tours and many sold out shows. But we are aiming even higher and take Wintersun to the next level in 2013! We have 3 official webstores up and running (Europe, Finland, North America) and we hope you guys like the available items. Thereīll be constant updates and new products and we will also have interesting competitions and specials coming up on our pages, so be sure to check it all out.

We are starting the mix of TIME II and it will be released early 2014. The album will continue where TIME I left, but it will be an upgrade in production, it will be equally epic, if not more. It will contain some "fast stuff" and some guitar shredding (incl. 7 solos) like some of you metal heads and guitar wankers have been wishing for. It will also contain some of the most beautiful music ever written, that will bring a tear to your eye.

We are playing some huge summer festivals in Finland and in EU (Incl. Tuska, Nummirock, Metalfest, Beastival, Hellfest...) and for the first time going to Spain. We are also taking part in EMMA GAALA ("Finnish Grammy") in March for the nomination of "Best Metal Album of the Year". We know itīs going to be an exciting year. It is because all of you who have supported us during the years, we have been able to grow and continue to do what we love.

Thank you for all the support!

Stay tuned for some further exciting live news soon! We hope to see all of you on the road and during the festival season 2013!
From Wintersun's Facebook - Time II to be released in early 2014.

I didn't realize it took over 12 months to mix, master, and process an album...honestly, there is no reason why this couldn't come out, at the latest by Fall.

That said I will be looking forward to it.
