I agree with Lorcan - that performance at Summer Breeze was quite special to watch! It must have been great to be there. I think Wintersun is back for good because The Forest Season kicks butt musically and shows what this band has been all about from the beginning. It is certainly not an easy listen and needs proper mood and athmosphere to enjoy it. My opinion is this also: the first impression stays no matter what comes later. If I had given it the first listen at work during lunchbreak shewing my tortilla I would not had liked it probably. Too long and too nonshreddy. Fortunately Summer Breeze pro footage was the first time I experienced new songs when I had time and mood for it and Teemed it awsome! ... The opening "spring" is an epic anthem!
