Nice music, cheesy lyrics
David M. Anderson | Manhattan, KS United States | 04/07/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Artension is a prog metal band with focus around the keyboardist versus a guitarist. The vocalist at times sounds a lot like Graham Bonnet (Rainbow, Impelliteri) and the songs are generally catchy. The lyric department could use a little work... "Show me the answers to questions within my heart" pleas the band on the first track "Area 51.." Since when are questions about aliens heart felt? And then there's "Through the Gate" with the oh so original "Through the gate... it's too late..." Otherwise, this group seems to have some potential, check them out if you like other progressive metal acts like Dream Theater, Stratovarius, Rhapsody, etc..."
