Wintersun Welcome New Guitarist, Extend Crowdfunding Campaign


Fresh off crowdfunding crowdfunding nearly $467,000 for their own studio, Wintersun have announced a new second guitarist. Asim Searah (Damnation Plan) has joined the outfit. The band’s vocalist/keyboardist, etc. Jari Mäenpää commented of the addition:

“We’ve known him for a long time and we knew he is a great singer, but we didn’t realise how talented and skillful a guitar player he is. Asim was actually the first one who sent us an audition video, which surprised us very positively. After the video auditions and two rounds of live auditions we realised he was exactly what we were looking for. He is very motivated and passionate with a good heavy metal attitude – a great guitar player and vocalist to improve the live sound of WINTERSUN even further!”
