Wintersun was supposed to be a side project of Ensiferum member Jari Mäenpää but due to scheduling conflicts Jari quit Ensiferum and Wintersun became his full time project. Wintersun is currently signed to Nuclear Blast records and features the following members:
Jari Mäenpää - Vocals, Guitars
Teemu Mäenpää- Guitar
Jukka Koskinen- Bass
Kai Hahto- Drums
Wintersun’s blend of power, viking, folk, and death metal makes for an all around ear pleasing and enjoyable listening experience. While we were sad to see Jari leave Ensiferum, Petri Lindroos(ex-Norther) is a great fit and we think everything worked out the way it should.
