I think it
is very hard to judge a band on three songs; it's like having to point out the
murderer in a book after reading the first three chapters. But like it's the
case with most books you know for sure if it will one you will a real hard time
putting aside or one you know will be a drag...
might be an unknown to most readers, formed by original members of acclaimed
Century Media recording artist Leviathan, the band consists of Ty Tammeus
(Drums), Tom Braden (Vocals), Shamus McConney (Guitars), Hermanus J. Rombouts
(Guitars) and Jon Jennings (Bass). And they couldn't have picked a better name (Artizan:
skilled craftsman; creator) because this is first class musicians displaying
their writing, singing and playing skills.
songs EP shows a band with heaps of talent and potential, and if these songs are
any indication on things to come then I promise you we are in for a real
treat... The complex, innovative and powerful songs have references to Leviathan
and could pass as a progressive version of old Iced Earth, nicely mixed up with
some strong Iron Maiden influences.
need do something about their God awful logo, write more songs at this high
level, and with a bit of luck and hard work get a record deal... and I foresee a bright
future for them.
