"Talvi Metal" will the Finnish metal head say... or, in English, "Winter Metal". Born back in 1991, brothers in arms A. Sarkioja and E. Sarkioja started a band that isn't only founded on a cold place up north in Finland. No, the band embraced coldness to adapt it into their lyrics, art work and arranged over the years a new death metal sound that simply sounds like a touch of frost. Words of A. Sarkioja: "I would describe our music as fast paced and highly melodic; like a winter wind at a beautiful frost morning, heavy and aggressive; as fierce as winter can be. This is Winter metal..."

October 2011 IMMORTAL SOULS will return with their 4th full length that will carry the title "IV: The Requiem for the Art of Death". Like their third album Wintereich (2007, Dark Balance) this album will come also as a story in chapters.

IMMORTAL SOULS did take their song writing to a higher level again in the last years. Said that, what about the instrumental progression of Immortal Souls? Listening to "IV: The Requiem for the Art of Death" you will notice the band did add more variation in the album if compared with their previous releases!

IMMORTAL SOULS toured so far three times over Europe and played Tuska Festival in Finland. End of October until half November 2011 IMMORTAL SOULS will join forces with BECOMING THE ARCHETYPE (USA, Solid State) to tour over Europe for 17 days. Shows guaranteed so far in Germany, Switzerland, Czech, Belgium, Luxembourg and The Netherlands. Be prepared…
