I Traveled 17 Hours For A Single Concert.I am obsessed with heavy metal, more of the underground music really than anything else; and more so, mostly Scandinavian bands. It lets something on the "outside" match the fast-paced(ness) on the "inside" for one. I am always thinking about new ideas, writing, theories, projects, etc... Well anyway, Wintersun has been one of my favorite bands for a very long time (no pun intended, if you get that ;)) and they were supposed to release their second album in 2006. They just released it Oct. '12! After waiting so long for this album to drop, I immediately took off work, bought tickets (concert and flight), and flew my *** to Jyväskylä, Finland. After 12 hours flying in economy class and a five hour bus ride from Helsinki, I got to go to the opening and album release show and meet the entire band. Heavy metal, the sounds, the lyrics, the deepness, etc., humbling saying here, has saved my life in so many ways; unfortuneately, mostly from myself and the grimmer thoughts that scatter through my brain at times. Anyway, Cheers!
