Cold, Fast and Deadly

Immortal Souls is a melodic death metal band from Finland. This country is well-known for its amazing melodic death metal bands such as Children of Bodom, Kalmah, Norther, etc., but Immortal Souls are playing quite different music than these bands. They know how to make melodic sounds along with brutal and groove riffs. I haven't met other band like this yet.

This album has a strong spirit. It contains fast, strong riffs on the first string that are played on two guitars. There are some moments when both of them play the same melody on different strings. To say it better, they double it. Main themes are dark, groove, and some very, very, very little influence from power metal. Here are also riffs that are played on first and fifth strings (same melody, of course). Solos are played on the sixth string. They are fast and perfectly fit in with the main theme.

The drumming is based on double bass. The drum rhythm is two to one, but is done very quickly along with the guitars. Bass in almost always in the mix, but in some songs, for example, 'Sacrifice', begins with a bass intro and has a little pre-solo that's played on bass. Also, we can see great bass skills in Aki 's work. Unfortunately, I don't understand bass much, so I can't talk much about it.

The vocals are mainly black metal rasps and mainly in the middle pitch. In the songs 'You' and 'Man Of Sorrow', we can hear some clean vocals in the first scale. The most remarkable song is 'Painbearer'. This song has the sickest riff. Also we must pay attention that band works without keyboards while other bands would be nothing without them. What could be done with keyboards are done by guitars, particularly on the last string.

This album has nothing to do with other albums by other bands, for example, Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquility, etc. This is ten times better, but I would strongly recommend to not listen to this album if you don't like melodic death metal or are going to familiarize yourself with this genre. If you are melodic death metal fan, however, you MUST listened to it!
