Cold landscapes of north are present in the bands storming. This is the reason why this music has sometimes been called wintermetal.. Since the beginning of their existence Immortal Souls has been known as a underground name, playing fast paced death metal with attitude. Closest musical influences are coming from bands like Dark Tranquillity and In Flames..

In July 2003 band got lot of visibility by playing in Helsinki Finland Tuska 2003 metal festival, which is the biggest nordic metal feast. Festival was also televised in Finland's national network, and band got it's minutes there..

Immortal Souls; with cold melodies, angry death metal and controversial texts is a band that gets your pulse to rise..


E.Sarkioja: Lead and Rhythm Guitar
Main composer in the band, highly creative and productive.
Characteristics: Beautiful melodies packed with ultra fast and complex solos.

A.Sarkioja: Voice and Bass
Compositions, texts, arrangements, artwork, management, site webmaster and leader of the pack.
Characteristics: Aggressive shriek voice, companied with mellow and more emotional parts. Heavyly distorted bass sound with sharp edges due to use of pick.

Pete Loisa: Rhythm Guitar, Clean Vocals
Originally more rock oriented guitarist, but found the sleeping metalhead within and is now a vital part of the band's metal sound.
Characteristics: Powerful heavy riffing and emotional live clean vocals.
