PostSubject: Wintersun   June 25th 2010, 11:55

Wintersun is the result of Jari Mäenpää who you guys might know from Ensiferum of which he was a part from 1996 to 2004.
The reason he left was because he couldn't combine Ensiferum with his side project Wintersun anymore and made Wintersun his main goal (of which i'm grateful).

So far they have only released one album called "Wintersun", he's busy on his album Time but from thought is this his 3rd or 4th year of making it.
Many setbacks and computers failing led to this i deduced from the official forums so lets hope its gonna get there soon!.

The lyrics are very powerful, he himself describes them as

Quote :
I have a little bit of a mournful, melancholic, majestic or kinda "spacy" way of writing, when it comes to melodies. Although everything is not melancholic, but rather "heroic" like you said, but I don't know if it's the right word to describe it. It's difficult to find adjectives to describe the feeling of my own music - it's just me. When I wrote songs to ENSIFERUM (few songs like "LAI LAI HEI and "Token Of Time"), I first needed to get into that "folk mood", before the music came out of me. WINTERSUN's music just comes out naturally. I don't mean to write certain things. It just happens, I guess."

And it certainly sounds that way, 2 songs which demonstrate the variaty in style.
First i'll show you Death and the healing, a very slow song but very majestic and a real moodchanger.

P.S. I Do recommend setting it to 480p for better sound quality!


A windstorm dropped a bird from the sky
It fell to the ground and it's wings broke and died
But when the time got by, back to sky it flied
'cause the wings healed in time and the bird was I

Time is the death and the healing
Take your last breath, 'cause death is deceiving
Time is the past, now and tomorrow
Days fly so fast and it leaves me so hollow

A snowstorm blew inside a wolf's eyes
and the frozen tears covered all the mountainsides
But then the time got by and the wolf died
and someday that wolf would be I

The second song i really like is Starchild, its quite faster but still keeps that great spirit in the music.
This is not the hardest song by them, but its the song i like the most!

The lyrics here are great in my opinion, he devided them up into chapters, i'll post them below the video Smile!


[Part I (Wanderer of Time)]

So mysterious is your world,
Concealed beyond the stars
Far away from the earth,
It flows one with time and dark as the night
Million shapes and colours
Are storming inside your mind
Creating endless dimensions
Forming universes without walls

Let go! of the stars, the stars that fell into the sea
Let go! of your thoughts and dreams,
What can you see now

You cannot save them anymore
- Wanderer of time -
It's too late now
- Creator of Dimensions -
Destroy the walls of time
Hands of the blind are holding your fate
Tides of life will take you away, will take you away

Visions are born from the unknown force
It dominates the way of time
The dream only ends, when the worlds come to an end
You cannot escape to the dark streams of the sea,
To suppress your dreams
Nothing can keep you away from the need to create
'cause your path is free...

[Part II (Burning Star)]

I've hold the fire within myself
Years I've walked in the coldest winds
Through the deserts of sand and snow
The time is passing and I know;
That I'm wasting my life, destroying my dreams
I'm diving into the bottomless sea
From sorrow and pain I find my strength
The more pain I feel, the more I see
Now I'm watching my life flowing in the dark
Like streams of fear running through my heart
And it's wearing me down until I'm gone
Soon I'll join the endless whirls of stars
And I fall (something is dying, yet something is born)
deeper into the unknown voids
And I fall (when will I find my silent dawn)
into infinity like a burning star
I fall like a burning star!

[Part III (The Creation)]

The curtains of mist are fading
And the veils of star clouds are revealed
Storms of new energy
Flows in the depths of my mind
New constellations are born
In total harmony of perfection
And the dissonant unbalance was broken
As the colours fell straight from the light

[Part IV (The Sea of Stars)]

I'm floating in the sea of stars,
I'm drifting away from the shore
I will be lost in the dream when the dark days come
But I will make the time run backwards and
I'll make the stars shine again
I will light up the sky to a bright crimson nights
... And they'll shine together forever
With brilliant silver colours they'll shine forever

[Part V (Finale)]

The whirls of stars takes you now far away
Away from the cold nightmare
Let go of you thoughts and dreams
And you will feel the warmth once again
Starchild! in the Sea of Stars you fall
You fall like a burning star!
Starchild! in the Sea of Stars you fall
... But there is no end to creation

I love Starchild. For the upholding of the speed, the great control of drums and guitar, great vocals and lovable lyrics.

Wintersun is one of my favorites. But i hope their new album comes soon. Its called 'Time' I think.
'Beyond The Dark Sun' is the best song in my eyes (or ears). bounce
