Finnish epic Metallers Wintersun are set to unleash their long-awaited third studio album, 'The Forest Seasons', this Friday July 21st through Nuclear Blast.

As well as classical and folk, Wintersun's music also seems to be influenced by progressive rock and guitarist Jari Mäenpää was asked about this. See what he says right here:



As well as 'The Forest Seasons' , the live album 'Wintersun Live At Tuska Festival 2013' will be released on vinyl on the same day. The band have already given fans a taste for the new live album in the form of a video for the track 'Beautiful Death' and here it is:



Jari commented on the track:

"We're proud to present the first track from our Live At Tuska 2013 album. The chosen song is 'Beautiful Death', which we haven't played that often live, but now you can hear it in its full glory. Nothing fixed or edited, raw shit!"
