Melodic metal band ARTIZAN will enter legendary Morrisound Studios in Tampa, Florida in August with producer Jim Morris (ICED EARTH, SAVATAGE, CRIMSON GLORY, DEATH) to record its new album, “Ancestral Energy”, for release via Pure Steel Records at the April 2013 edition of the Keep it True Festival in Germany. The title track reveals a deep backstory of the Artizan character.
Commented ARTIZAN founder Ty Tammeus, “We have created a rich, unique and quite dark concept which describes the lineage and source of power for our Artizan character. The new material continues in the vein of the first album along with some more up-paced and heavier songs. There is more emphasis on the progressiveness elements, and, of course, we continue to focus on strong melodies.”
ARTIZAN‘s full-length debut, “Curse Of The Artizan”, came out in April 2011 through Pure Steel.
ARTIZAN, hailing from Jacksonville, Florida, was formed by original members of the acclaimed Century Media recording artist LEVIATHAN, and released its self-titled debut EP in late 2009. With a strong resemblance to such great bands as IRON MAIDEN, QUEENSRŸCHE, FATES WARNING and CRIMSON GLORY, ARTIZAN is undoubtedly one of the best exponents of what classic heavy metal is all about.
