Nobody believed WINTERSUN
's (.i.e. Jari Mäenpää's) megalomaniac plans to get enough money collected for their 3rd album "The Forest Seasons (+ for their own recording studio)", and the band got trashed a lot about this at first by many people.
Well, WINTERSUN proved them all wrong
and reached their 1st goal to get 150,000 euros collected within less than 24 hours, which is quite an achievement in itself I would say.
This is not only a good thing for WINTERSUN
but also for the whole Metal genre in general I think. Metal fans are the most supportive people in this world towards their bands they love. It's a sweet thing to be a metal head...
