IMMORTAL SOULS - WINTEREICH (2007, Facedown)
Wintereich was my first CD from Immortal Souls, and they became one of my favorite metal acts after just one listen. I found out about Immortal Souls while I was searching for metal bands from Finland (my Finnish heritage probably has something to do with my undying interest in Finnish music). The CD itself makes for quite an entertaining listen, and though it is not particularly groundbreaking or unique, it is nonetheless one of my favorite metal albums of all time. The musicianship and songwriting are excellent, and I'm sure that almost every metal fan will find something to like about this CD, if not the band itself. I recommend their other CDs as well, as they too are quality albums in their own right.
