VAN CANTO - Tribe Of Force

\r\nHeavy Metal is a music genre that needs electricity in order to be produced, electric guitars, electric bass and sometimes keyboards. That’s what we used to believe cause Van Canto are here to make us reconsider all these clichés.
\r\nDo you wanna listen to something different? Something really radical? Are you you sick of all these “metallic” sounds? Do not give in to minimalistic progressive stuff ( well, even there you can listen to guitars sometimes) here’s the thing for you, Van Canto! Extremely radical and alternative, they manage to produce a really heavy sound using only their vocal abilities and a drum kit!
\r\nSo if you are a progressive thinking, unbiased person, after all music can’t be contained, you ca enjoy Metallica’s “Master Of Puppets” on an a cappella version!! And that’s not all since we have another a cappella cover, that of Grave Digger’s “Rebellion” featuring Chris Boltendahl himself! But I think we should not concentrate on the covers since that’s nothing new for Van Canto, there are also 11 compositions in which we have the chance to admire one more time the awesome vocal abilities of the band. I don’t know if it’s a form of art to produce the sound of rhythm guitars, bass and sometimes lead solos, using your voice but it’s definitely something new. What I can’t cope with is the term “a cappella metal” (for DIO’s sake!!!)
\r\nOf course the band is exceptional at what they’re doing, there’s no question why they have worked with some of the famous Metal musicians like Tarja on her latest release and Chris Boltendahl on this one.
\r\nI really don’t know what the future holds for the Metal Scene with bands like Van Canto and any other music branch that (ab)uses the term “Metal” as a selling point, what I know is that this band introduces a new Metal genre that (fortunately) I’m too “narrow-minded” and “Prejudiced” to accept, that’s the reason why I’m not rating this one.
\r\nProgressive thinkers of this world…come forth.
