Finnish technical metalers (and one of my favorite bands in the world) Wintersun have released their new group photo shot in the style of the new album, “Time I.” The shoot was done by Nana Simelius. The long-awaited new album will be out in North America on October 23, 2012.
On their facebook page along with the photo there was a quote which I assume came from Jari Mäenpää.
“Looking for the photographer for TIME I we went through many photographers’ portfolios, but looking at Nana´s portfolio we instantly knew she had that extra something that would fit well with our new mix of oriental and traditional winter styles. She was very inspired with our ideas so we were really happy to work with her. We drove down to Turku (200 km away from Helsinki) where the photoshoot took place in her studio. We were shooting all day and the result turned out to be amazing, thanks to Nana’s talent and vision, but also her stylists and assistants! We aimed for a magical winter and oriental look and we think we succeeded perfectly.”
Check out the behind the scenes video, and get ready for some awesome Finnish metal this fall!
