Weekly Band Profile: Van Canto

Leave a comment

Name: Van Canto
From: Germany
Web Site: http://www.vancanto.de/
Lifespan: 2006-Present
Genre: Metal, Power Metal
Best Release: Hero
Releases:
Hero
A Storm To Come
Info:
Van Canto is one of the most unusual bands you will find. What makes them stand out? They are an a cappella metal band. You read that right, a metal band, no guitars or anything, just straight vocals. They do have a drummer which is a bit of a sellout, but I’ll let it slide because they also do a lot of awesome covers (Manowar, Nightwish, Blind Guardian, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Metallica and Grave Digger). I’ll admit the first time I heard Van Canto I thought it was hilarious, and a bit weird, but they quickly grew on me and now I’m eagerly awaiting their 3rd studio album. The bad really is something you’ve got to hear for yourself, what you’ve got in your head as what they might sound like does them no justice.

Weekly Band Profile: Engage

Leave a comment

Name: Engage
From: Glen Allen, Virginia
Web Site: n/a
Lifespan: 2005-2008
Genre: Power Metal
Best Release: EVERYTHING
Releases:
Demo 2005
Don’t Turn Back EP
Info:
Engage was a little power metal band from Virginia, and they were amazing. I got the pleasure of seeing them once or twice, all some seemingly high school guys belting out some major tunes. When I saw them life the set was peppered with a lot of cover songs because they were a young band, but I’ll never knock a band for throwing in some Manowar covers. The band broke up in 2008 when they wanted to go a ‘different direction musically’. Engage is missed.
