PiercingMetal Thoughts: Historically speaking I’ve only ever seen Wintersun twice but it was magnificent for me as this is the kind of sound that I lean towards the most. Finding them returning for a headlining tour to lead us into the cooler months is almost fitting. Another highlight for me is the sonic experience that is Ne Obliviscaris. Wow what a band and if you’ve seen them you will likely be nodding your head in agreement with me on that proclamation. Now I don’t know much about Sarah Longfield but when I hit the regional appearance of this one I will be sure to get there early enough to see her set and let you know what I think. So what about you readers? Does this one excite you at all? Let me know down in the comments section below. See you next time.
