BAND ARTIZAN ALBUM Demon Rider LABEL PURE STEEL RECORDS OUT 2018 August 17th OUR RATING 79/100
ARTIZAN are back with a new albu called "Demon Rider".
Surely epic ("Soldiers of Light" and "When Darkness Falls") and powerful ("The Hangman"), it includes all their trademarks. The title-track includes electric performances by guest vocalist Harry "The Tyrant" Conklin (Jag Panzer) on the limited edition, and guest bassist Joey Vera (Fates Warning, Armored Saint) on all tracks.
"Demon Rider" is a full-lenght of US POWER HM mixed with PROG HM drops; really interesting, with several and well balanced changes of time, long runaways.
We can find complex structures; it's pity that solo parts are so limited.
There' s a big diffence between standard cd, with five songs, and limited edition, so rich of live and instrumental version.
