5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest album of the 21st centuary - FACT, 22 Aug 2006
This review is from: Wintersun (Audio CD)
Yes you read that right folks, I have only been into metal for just under two years but in that time have bought a lot of heavy music, and I believe this to be nigh on perfect.

I will admit I had never heard of Wintersun but whilst looking at some Children of Bodom albums saw 'if you like this band check out these' kind of section in which they were mentioned I thought the album art was cool and it had positive reviews so I thought "crumbs lets buy it". And I am glad I did.

This is melodic death metal of the highest quality. Jari plays everything on the album except drums (he also growls/sings). The quality of the instruments is awesome with some great guitar melodies and some super fast solos. The drums are super cool as well with a great drum flourish on the latter half of Beautiful Death.

The vocals are superb (I like anything from almost operatic vocals from bands like Dragonforce to almost incoherent shrieking on early Behemoth releases. Jari growls most of the time but the singing bits are really cool as well.

Best tracks -

Sleeping Stars

Starchild

Beautiful Death

Overall - A must buy for anybody who likes the Scandinavian death metal sound.

Also if anybody who knows the band or record label, please tell them to update the website with more news on the next album.

Cheers
