WINTERSUN Begins Mixing ‘Time II’ Album

Finnish epic metallers WINTERSUN have issued the following update:

“After some festival and summer show announcements, we thought we might also give you a heads up regarding [the next WINTERSUN album] ‘Time II’.

“2012 was a really great year for us, the release of ‘Time I’ was a huge success and we did two successful tours and many sold-out shows. But we are aiming even higher and take WINTERSUN to the next level in 2013!

“We have three official webstores up and running (Europe, Finland, North America) and we hope you guys like the available items. There’ll be constant updates and new products and we will also have interesting competitions and specials coming up on our pages, so be sure to check it all out.

“We are starting the mix of ‘Time II’ and it will be released early 2014. The album will continue where ‘Time I’ left, but it will be an upgrade in production; it will be equally epic, if not more. It will contain some ‘fast stuff’ and some guitar shredding (including seven solos), like some of you metalheads and guitar wankers have been wishing for. It will also contain some of the most beautiful music ever written that will bring a tear to your eye.

“We are playing some huge summer festivals in Finland and in Europe (including Tuska, Nummirock, Metalfest, Beastival, Hellfest) and for the first time going to Spain. We are also taking part in Emma Gaala (Finnish Grammy) in March for the nomination of ‘Metal Album Of The Year’. We know it’s going to be an exciting year. It is because all of you who have supported us during the years we have been able to grow and continue to do what we love.

“Thank you for all the support!

“Stay tuned for some further exciting live news soon! We hope to see all of you on the road and during the festival season 2013!”

Emma Gaala (Finnish Grammy equivalent) will be held on March 1 at Barona Areena in Espoo, Finland. WINTERSUN‘s “Time I” will be going up against MOKOMA (“180 Astetta”), NIGHTWISH (“Imaginaerum”), TERVEET KÄDET (“Musta Hetki”), and STAM1NA (“Nocebo”).

“Time I” sold nearly 4,000 copies in its first week of release in the United States to land at position No. 109 on The Billboard 200 chart.

WINTERSUN recently headlined this year’s edition of the Heidenfest tour. Support on the trek came from KORPIKLAANI, VARG, TROLLFEST and KRAMPUS.

More news regarding Randy Blythe and his Manslaughter Trial in Prague

According to WTVR.com, a concertgoer defended LAMB OF GOD singer Randy Blythe‘s actions during a performance in Prague, telling a Czech court earlier today that he did not think Blythe was aggressive that night, and that fans should realize any aggressive behavior displayed on stage is just part of the show.

Blythe is facing the possibility of conviction and a long-term jail sentence after a May 2010 incident in which a fan, Daniel Nosek, who attended a LAMB OF GOD concert in Prague, died almost a month later, allegedly from injuries sustained when he was thrown off the stage.

Lukas Havlena told the court during Thursday’s testimony that he contacted Blythe‘s defense team after reading accounts of what other witnesses were saying during the trial.

Contrary to the way other witnesses described the atmosphere at the concert, Havlena said that each time somebody got on the stage, Blythe made it clear they weren’t allowed there.

Blythe‘s defense team asked for the trial to be postponed until March 4 because one witness fell ill and two criminal psychologists who were expected to testify were unable to attend this week. Also expected to testify when the trial resumes are Havlena‘s friend and some more security personnel.

The singer will be allowed to return to the U.S. until his trial resumes. He indicated in court that he would definitely return to Prague next month.

The parents of the alleged victim, Daniel Nosek, are demanding compensation of 10 million Czech Koruna (approximately $530,000).

Blythe was imprisoned for five weeks in the Czech Republic after being detained on June 27, 2012 when the Grammy-nominated, Richmond, Virginia-based band arrived there for a show.

The singer was freed without charge in August but had to post $400,000 bail, then left the country, vowing to return for the trial.
