4 Works in Wintersun (Band)
01 Dec 2016
This is a modern dark fantasy version of "Snow Queen" fairy-tale featuring my beloved metal band Wintersun. As we know, the Snow Queen is Hel, the Scandinavian goddess of winter and death. She plans to take Wintersun's lead guitarist Jari to serve her forever at her palace of ice, but things go wrong, and Kai the drummer disappears instead. His friends got nothing else to do but start a long and dangerous quest to save him, guided by two ravens - the messengers of Odin.
The story is a pure fantasy of mine, so don't take it too close to heart.
Jari Mäenpää was a guitar teacher from Helsinki. He had a simple and a peaceful life until a dark power which he couldn't identify started to take over the whole world. There was no way he could stay out of it. He and his student Teemu Mäntysaari found themselves in a very dangerous game. And they knew their lives would never be the same again.
After their last show in Nosturi, Teemu finally reaches to his breaking point and makes a big decision about his life. And soon after Jari finds out about Teemu's decision and the consequences changes their lifes forever.
Music has always had a special effect on Jari.
