These guys are great. Anyone who doesn't know them should really give them a try. Mabe takes a while to get into but it's great party music

To be really honest, there's one particular thing that bothers me about Van Canto - it's the drums. I mean, it's a capella with drums. With all due respect, Van Canto is excellent, but this sole fact bothers me. Especially so after I saw a Finnish a capella band called Fork live about year ago. They are not a "metal" band but just listen to their version of "Bohemian Rhapsody" or Teräsbetoni and Gary Moore's "Over the Hills and Far Away" Nightwish style medley. Now, that's a capella!

Van Canto is a great band.

This sounds like good news I loved the 2006 album. However I think that stormbringer is a Deep Purple cover...

Indeed! Don't know why they didn't mention this on their own page. News corrected (and no, track 8 is not a Jag Panzer cover)

personal opinion: a bit disappointing, the sound doesn't seem to match the mood of the song... same goes for FotD
