WINTERSUN’s Drummer Thought It Was A Joke That “Time II” Is Finally Completed

Wintersun began recording Time I and Time II in 2006. Time I was released in 2012, and Time II is expected to be released in late summer or early fall of 2024. This exciting news puts an end to the long-running ‘Time II when?’ jokes among Wintersun fans.

The release of Time II has been highly anticipated. When frontman Jari Mäenpää informed Wintersun drummer Kai Hahto of its completion, Hahto was initially skeptical.

However, in an interview with Chaoszine, he expressed his surprise in a friendly manner.

“A few weeks ago, maybe Jari sent us a message in our band chat and revealed that the album is now done. I didn’t believe it at first and had to check the calendar that it wasn’t even April Fool’s Day because it’s been like 16 years since I recorded my parts for it.”

“[The] drum parts are the same as what we recorded in 2006. I recorded the drums for Time I and Time II in four days because originally it was just supposed to be titled Time and not split into two sections. Later, the record label wanted to split it into two albums because it was a bit too long. The first part came out in 2012, so it’s been already over 10 years since the release of that album.”
