Protest the Hero are the definition of what fun is.
Artizan are a band I have been fond of since their first album in 2011. Masterminded by drummer Ty Tammeus, they blazed a trail on the melodic power metal world with a truly impactful mark on an oftentimes droll and repetitive genre. I’ve said it before, and will keep saying, there are some amazing bands on the power metal scene, but there are an equal amount of bands that are so derivative I find it tough to enjoy most of them.
Vocalist Sataniac adds a level of heaviness to the music. As I have stated before, it’s the vocals in extreme metal that puts me off of being a raving fan. Though his voice teeters close to what I typically try to avoid, he tosses in enough inflection change to keep me interested.
