Currently playing at various summer festivals, Finnish epic metallers WINTERSUN will embark on a European headline run with their brand-new record »The Forest Season«, in early September. Starting at Meh Suff! Metal Festival in Hüttikon, Switzerland, the tour will come to an end at Tvornica Kulture in Zagreb, Croatia on October 9th. Today, the band led by Jari Mäenpää can finally present the support acts for this extensive trek! Finnish Samurai metallers WHISPERED and melodic death metallers BLACK THERAPY will be joining the Finns on their journey across the Continent. Additionally, new dates have been added to WINTERSUN's 2018 tour with ARCH ENEMY, TRIBULATION and JINJER, all dates can be found below!
Combining northern melodic metal with Japanese folk music and symphonic elements, WHISPERED have created their own style of metal - samurai metal. The band will fire up the crowd by playing a variety of tracks from their three albums, but focusing on their latest output, »Metsutan - Songs Of The Void«.

WHISPERED's Mikko Mattila commented:"We're absolutely honored to get a chance to join WINTERSUN on this tour! Loads of fans have been saying that we should tour with the big W and now it is actually happening! Epic metal overdose guaranteed! See you on the battlefields!"

BLACK THERAPY from Rome, Italy will be opening the shows of this forthcoming tour with their intense music. Founded back in 2009, the band released their second full-length album titled »In The Embrace Of Sorrow, I Smile« in December 2016, which will be introduced to the fans as well.

BLACK THERAPY added: "We are really excited to be part of this tour, along with WINTERSUN and WHISPERED. We will travel to a lot of different places and we are ready to bring our sorrow-fueled melodic death metal deep into your nearest forest!"
