ARTIZAN - "Ancestral Energy"

Matt Barlow (ex-ICED EARTH) as guest on the new album "Ancestral Energy"



"Ancestral Energy" is the forthcoming album of ARTIZAN and will be released in April 2013 via Pure Steel Records.

Former ICED EARTH frontman Matt Barlow will make a very special guest appearance on the title track of "Ancestral Energy", the new album by melodic power metal band ARTIZAN. The song reveals an intriguing back story for the original ARTIZAN track "Curse Of The Artizan", which was released in 2011. Matt will perform the voice of the Artizan's ancestors.

Barlow's comment: "I'm happy to announce that I will be lending my voice to the forthcoming release of the new ARTIZAN album, 'Ancestral Energy'. In addition to my own musical project, Ty and the guys of ARTIZAN have given me the opportunity to appear as a guest vocalist on what I believe will be a great conceptual endeavor.

"If you have followed what the band has recorded previously, you know that they are very much into 'storytelling' and that's something that has always interested me in this genre. As another benefit, I will get to work with producer Jim Morris again as he puts the guys through their paces at Morrisound Recording.

"I'm looking forward to recording the song that I'll be performing on, and think that we'll have a great time with it."

ARTIZAN founder/drummer Ty Tammeus adds: "We are proud and honored that Matt will be contributing his talents to the new album. We will be showcasing Matt's full vocal range on the passage that we have created for him. I am ecstatic that we all get to hear Matt again!"

ARTIZAN "Ancestral Energy" - preorder phase started!

The new ARTIZAN-masterpiece "Ancestral Energy" is now available in our webshop. Safe 1 Euro during preorder phase. The official release date is the 10th of May 2013. "Ancestral Energy" was recorded, mixed, mastered and produced by Jim Morris @ Morrisound / Tampa, FL. He worked in the past for bands like SAVATAGE and ICED EARTH. The album contains also a guest appearance of Matt Barlow (ASHES OF ARES, ex-ICED EARTH).

First press reactions are fantastic: Craig Hartranft of dangerdog.com wrote:
"How do you follow up a great debut album and avoid the sophomore jinx? Bring an equally strong sequel. That's exactly what Jacksonville's Artizan has done with Ancestral Energy. Once more the band successfully blends the best of classic melodic heavy metal with nuances of power and progressive metal. Among many things, the singular strength of Artizan is their ability to weave the best aspects of those in an interesting and entertaining fashion. ...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. Good stuff, and strongly recommended." 5/5 points

ARTIZAN "Ancestral Energy" - limited vinyl edition - Cover, Tracklist, release date:

The release date of the ARTIZAN album "Ancestral Energy" on vinyl is June 28th, 2013. The limited vinyl edition consists 500 pieces and is coming with a A3 poster and gatefold. As a special bonus the red vinyls get an additional patch. The preorder phase will start on June 14th, 2013 in our webshop.

ARTIZAN had a surprise hit two years ago with their debut album entitled “Curse of the Artizan”. Metal fans loved the melody lines, great riffs, and ideas – ARTIZAN was more than what has come to be expected from such bands. The songs were memorable and spirited and embodied the pure art of heavy metal and showcased the fascinating voice of Tom Braden.

On their second album entitled Ancestral Energy we find exactly these same attributes with even more. The style is the same and is what we have come to love about ARTIZAN, but Ancestral Energy is no carbon copy of Curse of the Artizan. Ancestral Energy will definitely surprise its listeners. The melody lines are more sophisticated and will carry you away; the arrangements are more intense, but will still keep you feeling uplifted. Songs like the opener “I am the Storm,” “Deep Ocean Dreams” or the single “The Death of Me” will have you singing them out loud, but every time you hear them you will find something new; these songs simply do not wear off. The monumental title track, which includes a very well-done guest performance by ex-ICED EARTH singer Matt Barlow, is clearly a masterpiece and not only showcases Braden and Barlow’s vocal prowess, but presents all the band’s strengths as a whole. And the variable drumming of Ty Tammeus is something which you won’t find so easily with other bands.

Productions these days often seem only to sound like compressed plastic or an imitation of music from 40 years ago. This latest release by ARTIZAN shows you how it’s done properly! Ancestral Energy has a production which is authentic and natural, but also powerful and balanced. That’s how melodic metal is supposed to sound in the year 2013!

You won‘t find any better metal this year!



TRACKLIST:
Side A
1. I am the Storm
2. The Raven Queen
3. The Guardian
4. The Death of Me
Side B
5. Deep Ocean Dreams
6. You can’t take the Metal
7. Ancestral Energy
Total Playing Time: 40:23 min



LINE-UP:
Ty Tammeus – Drums
Tom Braden – Vocals
Shamus Mcconney – Guitar
Jon Jennings – Bass
very special guest: Matt Barlow (ASHES OF ARES, ex-ICED EARTH)
