The single of the US-Metal Band ARTIZAN - "Demon Rider" was released on Youtube. The release date of the new ARTIZAN album „Demon Rider" on CD is August 17th, 2018. The pre-order phase will start on July 27th, 2018 in our webshop. "Demon Rider" will be available in 2 Versions. As limited Edition of 750 copies, as Double CD and with 1 Bonustrack. And as normal Edition.

ARTIZAN are back! And Demon Rider is fantastic! More epic (check: "Soldiers of Light" and "When Darkness Falls") and powerful (check: "The Hangman") than ever, including all the trademarks they are known for.

Once again, producer Jim Morris (Iced Earth, Crimson Glory, Jag Panzer) is at the helm, delivering a timeless, crystal clear auditory experience. The musicianship particularly shines on Demon Rider, including 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.

The spectacular artwork for Demon Rider is again inked by Eliran Kantor (Testament, Iced Earth) illustrating the title track opening lyrics, "Raging through the blood-red sky a hellish beast appears, gripping to its mane a valiant rider. Quenching his eternal lust for paralyzing fear, he smashes through it's eyes and drinks the fire!"

Demon Rider is a full plate of USA power metal; all meat with no filler!
