It took almost 8 years for us to get the Wintersun release of 'Time I' and I'm thinking it's going to be another couple of years until we hear 'Time II'. The first rumor we heard is that we would see the release sometime in 2014.
Jari Mäenpää, songwriter and lead of Wintersun gave us an update. Here is what he had to say:
Here's the reality. Time I & II and even couple of the next albums would have been out already, if I would have a studio. BUT I don't have a studio. Studio is like an instrument of making music and I don't have that instrument, so it's pretty fucking hard to make albums, especially as complicated as the Time albums are.
Time II is in good place mixwise, it's sounding pretty damn spectacular, but there are still some difficult obstacles I'm battling with. Tuska Festival weekend is coming and I'm gonna get wasted! I've been working nonstop since January (and not just the Time II, new material and there's some other new things boiling under as well). So don't come ask me at Tuska 'when's Time II coming out?' hahah! Unless you buy me a beer!
After hearing this, there doesn't seem to be an end date in sight at this current time. So sit back and relax because you won't have a Wintersun release any time soon.
