Finnish kings reveal artwork

Last week, the Finnish kings of epic melodic death, WINTERSUN, announced their crowdfunding campaign that will start on March 1st and allows the fans to secure their ‘Forest Package’ – also including their upcoming studio album ‘The Forest Seasons’ – directly from the band. With the collected amount, front man Jari Mäenpää plans to build his own studio that would finally allow him to record his long-awaited album ‘Time II’. Today, WINTERSUN unveil the cover artwork of their third album ‘The Forest Seasons’.

Jari Mäenpää states:“We’re proud to show you guys our NEW 3rd full length album cover! The album cover was made in collaboration by Gyula Havancsák and Jari Mäenpää. It illustrates THE AWAKENING of a mystical forest where the seasons are merging together.
By the way, this preview is just 1280 x 720 resolution. Wait till you see it in 5K! 😉
Enjoy guys! This album is sick and minds will be blown! Our INDIEGOGO crowdfunding campaign will start on March 1st where you can order the new album DIRECTLY from us with the highest quality!
Thank you!”
