Curse of the Artizan

Rated 3.06/5 (61.11%) (18 Votes)

This is the debut full-length from Artizan, who seem dedicated to making slightly proggy Power Metal that is as boring as possible. Their playing is passable, but they are obviously very influenced by Nevermore with the tedious start-stop riff patterns and heaviness substituting for catchiness. The vocals are decent but are saddled with incredibly lame vocal melodies that repeat and repeat and repeat until you hate them. This band tries hard, but there is not a single interesting or exciting moment on this entire album.
