    Hey all NUFfians, first post, just wanted to make a sorta kinda PSA.

    Like how a lot of translators are going onto Patreon (nice, that), there is one band out there that also deserves your time. fyi not a paid advert, just really love their music

    Wintersun, an awesome extreme power metal band, is one of my favourite bands of all Time. I strongly recommend you check out some of their music - if you enjoy music, i promise you will end up headbanging your way through their tracks. hard to genre lock them, but powermetal at their core.
    eg:



    They're trying to pony up cash to create their own studio and have launched an indiegogo crowdfunder, and it was open all of last month. You can check out the stats there on the site -- out of the TOTAL money they needed, we fans have already generated a fuckton. And this was their first Crowdfunding package. Outta three. all with benefits like below.

    anyway tl;dr - awesome band launching a new album + remastered and perfected versions of their old stuff + isolated tracks + karaoke versions + some other stuff -- All for £ 50 (approx $63 US)

    that's 3 + albums, for the price of 1, btw.

    so they extended the package deal. :: link :: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/wintersun-crowdfunding--3/x/16166530#/

    if you like their sound, and wanna support, please do, so we can let them create magic in the right environment :)

    ensiferum was good, true...not as great anymore, imo....i think jari really made it pop back then too.

    honestly tho, i prefer his work in wintersun, the sound just....death growls to me (ba dum tss)

    true that. But problem with Wintersun is that they always delay their albums cuz Jari isn't satisfied with the sound. They have good publishing house who is enough for all other bands just not for them.
