Bands
Artizan

Artizan is a melodic power metal band from Jacksonville, Fl.

Founded by drummer Ty Tammeus in 2008, Artizan crafts powerful, melodic metal. Dynamic song structure, dominant rhythms and melodic hooks are key ingredients to the Artizan formula.

Among many things, the singular strength of Artizan is their ability to weave the best aspects of those in an interesting and entertaining fashion. The title track, the longest song and featuring ex-Iced Earth singer Matt Barlow, is a perfect example. Lots of classic melodic heavy and power metal woven in different movements without the burden of technical excessiveness. Yet, that's what Artizan has always been after, creating good sounding heavy metal that both entertains and keeps your interest. Besides the epic title track, there's very catchy anthem I Am the Storm . Stricter heavy metal comes with You Can't Take the Metal, where drummer and principal lyricist Ty Tammeus confirms his commitment to his genre of choice. Another more traditional melodic metal song comes with The Guardian, sounding like the Eighties American response to NWOBHM. Possibly the most compelling song is Deep Oceans Deep, with Tom Braden's vocals and vocal arrangement at their most powerful and haunting. He's one the best pure melodic metal vocalist in this day. Once more, with Ancestral Energy, Artizan delivers a fine platter of classic melodic metal. It makes you wonder how they'll follow this one up in the future.
