You might be asking who the hell is Teemu Mäntysaari? He is one of the guitarists for epic Finnish power/folk metal group Wiintersun.  The other guitarist being Jari Mäenpää.  Although Wintersun originates from Finland, they are not well-known when contrasted to other Finnish metal groups including Children of Bodom and Nightwish.  However, they bring rich power metal elements of music with fast tremolo picking on guitar into the arena.   What is even more amazing is Teemu’s music tastes as a musician.  In the interview below, he mentions that big influences include Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, and Shawn Lane.  He does not limit his taste of exploring more music.  Hopefully Wintersun will create more albums in the future to get more noticeable.
