The Finnish metallers Wintersun have released the following statement about their new album on the band’s official Facebook page :

Finland´s epic metaller WINTERSUN will release their long-awaited second album „TIME I“ on October 12 before hitting the road in October/November headlining the so-called Heidenfest tour. 

Recently the band went into the studio with photographer Nana Simelius to shoot the new pictures for the upcoming album.

Commented the band:

“Looking for the photographer for TIME I we went through many photographers’ portfolios, but looking at Nana´s portfolio we instantly knew she had that extra something that would fit well with our new mix of oriental and traditional winter styles. She was very inspired with our ideas so we were really happy to work with her. We drove down to Turku (200 km away from Helsinki) where the photoshoot took place in her studio. We were shooting all day and the result turned out to be amazing, thanks to Nana’s talent and vision, but also her stylists and assistants! We aimed for a magical winter and oriental look and we think we succeeded perfectly.”
