5.0 out of 5 stars Winter Metal Perfected March 8 2012
By The Red Jar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Seemingly from the cold shadow of many worthy 2011 metal releases, Immortal Souls jumped off the Facedown roster (Dark Balance in Europe) in early October with an album that is simply breathtaking. Though 2007's 'Wintereich' was impressive, the band seemed to have refocused, re-energized, crafting a work that got rid of all the rough edges of songwriting by just making them sharper!

The preponderant beauty of Immortal Souls is their treatment of rhythm. The drummer here is extremely more conspicuous here than on the previous albums, particularly on songs like "Thoughts of Desolation." But don't forget the guitars: often the centerpiece of the songs. Multiple tracks begin with a barrage of a riff or a small piece of it, though riffs give way to great sweeping interludes, as on the track "Reek of Rotting Rye," or baroque picking as on the eight-minute "Requiem of the Funeral Eve." Then there are the solos. The album features both "that's some clean fingering!" and "poor whammy bar!" moments.

Simply stated, this is mature metal. If you want harsh, self-described "winter metal," go ahead and click the buy button. Now. Before the nuclear winter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Obvious Talent... But What Happened? Nov. 9 2012
By XRamirez535 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
TL;DR - This band has shown it can do better. Musicianship is obviously high yet they seemingly took the safer route in song structure for most of the album. Buy their previous works before getting this.

It seems that Immortal Souls went for a safer approach in their writing. This album feels like it drags its feet save for a few standout tracks. They obviously have great talent as shown in intricate solos from the guitars, and the occasional drum fills that add a good flare in transitions. The bass is barely heard save for an intro that doesn't impress much but is still a nifty riff. For old fans, the toned down nature of this album will give you whiplash if you're coming from their previous (and far superior) album Wintereich.

If you just found this band I HIGHLY recommend you buy Wintereich first. If you are an old fan like me you'll get this to support the band and at least enjoy the two or three standouts such as the simple yet catchy "Nuclear Winter", the cleanly sung Metal/Alt. Rock fusion "One Last Withering Rose", and the hauntingly beautiful "Art of Death: Act III".

5.0 out of 5 stars Good melodic death metal from Finland Oct. 11 2013
By islander - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the follow up to Immortal Souls' brilliant album "Wintereich". I don't think that it as good as that album, but "Requiem for the Art of Death" still has some awesome music. Songs like "Evil Believer" and "Absolution" have great catchy choruses to go with the metal brutality. "Nuclear Winter" is another great song and it is worth checking it out (with video) on youtube before deciding on whether to buy this album.
The theme of the album, as indicated by the title, is death and dying. The songs come at the topic from various perspectives. While the band generally writes from a Christian perspective, I must admit some of the lyrics are a bit perplexing. The band's thoughts on the topic were apparently focused by the sudden death of a band member's father (to whose memory the album is dedicated).
Definitely worth checking out, and if you are not familiar with Immortal Souls, check out "Wintereich" as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Christian Melodic Death Metal!!! Jan. 22 2014
By Kyle Lavender - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have been searching for awesome Christian Metal bands ever since I converted and this was exactly what I was searching for, I love Melodic Death Metal, and even though I prefer deep growling over Black Metal vocals was irrelevant when I listened to one of their songs for the first time, I can't wait to get more of their albums!
