      Immortal Souls' third album (2007).

      Immortal Souls play a recognisably Finnish strand of melodic death metal, their emphasis on melodic lead guitars from E. Särkioja and Pete Loisa smacking of Children of Bodom, though if anything sounding even happier. Mostly avoiding the genre's more recent disintegration into metalcore (only 'Color of My Sky' comes close in its breakdown-style riffs), this is nevertheless quite an old and tired sound that loses its appeal after the first few tracks.

      The melodic lead melodies and classic heavy metal style solos are the main appeal here, to the point that the verse and bridge sections actually seem to intrude between them, and while the guitar playing itself is fast and fun, it doesn't take long for the guitarists to start copying themselves, and the solos are all a little indulgent. The tracklist is separated into four 'chapters,' but this doesn't engender a more epic sound; this is fairly average Finnish melodeath.
