Artizan - "The Death Of Me" Single
Melodic heavy metal/power metal band Artizan have offered up this advance single/video as a sneak peek of their new album, "Ancestral Energy". Founded in 2008 by former Leviathan drummer Ty Tammeus the band issued a 2009 self-titled EP and 2011's "Curse of the Artizan". If the new album proves to be as good as this new single then chances are it will be a warmly-received album. The new single, "The Death of Me", finds this Jacksonville, Florida band playing a fine brand of metal that combines elements of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Savatage and early Queensrÿche. The band's forthcoming album was recorded at Morrisound Studios in Tampa, Florida with the one and only Jim Morris in producer's chair. With former Iced Earth vocalist Matt Barlow said to be making a guest appearance on the title cut for "Ancestral Energy" this album sounds very promising. The new album will be released on Pure Steel Records sometime in April of 2013.
