No time for Time II, Wintersun

Though my posts have been sporadic, but I never stopped reading about musicians or music.  This post is about Wintersun, as I had mentioned before, one of my fav bands (don’t remember? read here: http://bit.ly/1mlyXYE ). Much to the Wintersun fans’ expectations (which were pretty high, considering how awesome Time I was), Time II will not be…

Winter is coming!

No, this is not another post about The Game of Thrones. What I am going to talk about here is this incredibly, outrageously, maddeningly, overpoweringly amazing band from Finland (yet again). Finland has the most incredible set of Metal bands.  And the one in discussion today is Wintersun. Another set of genius composers. Band Members:…

Covers that beat the original (Part II)

Scandinavian bands are my favorite, and Norther’s cover of The Final Countdown, is pretty  awesome. It is melodic, thrashy, and heavy. Could you ask for more? Here, have a listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iekAW_obdTc   I don’t know why the video is not working. Anyway, clicking on the link would serve you the same. Happy Listening 🙂

Tuska Open Air-2013

Tuska, Finland is one of the Music festivals that I will someday, somehow end up attending. It is a dream, yet to come true for me. As always, Tuska 2013 has a badass lineup of mind-ripping bands. Scheduled to kick off on 28th June 2013, Tuska is one of the most awaited Metal fest for…
