VAN CANTO’s third album will be casting much doubt over the well established definition of metal. Don’t come looking for screaming guitars or pounding bass on their latest work “Tribe of Force”. These vocal giants forego the support of electronic devices to create powerful tracks fit for the most discriminating of headbangers. Van Canto’s virtuous a cappella vocals build upon the rhythmic foundation of a mere drummer to create original compositions that will bring metal fans enthusiastically to their knees. The resonant production by Charlie Bauernfeind (Blind Guardian) emphasizes the sheer power behind each track and allows for a crystal clear sound. Two very special highlights further embellish “Tribe of Force”: Legendary metal screamer Chris Boltendahl joins Van Canto for a unique rendition of Grave Digger’s classic track “Rebellion” and the vocal acrobats continue to keep the tradition alive and their fans on anticipatory edge by covering yet another Metallica hit. “Tribe of Force” is forged of pure steel, and while it offers a different approach in the making, the end result is sure to send Van Canto well on their way to Metal Olympus. “Tribe of Force” will also be available as a strictly limited edition digipack including a bonus DVD of their 45-minute performance at Wacken Open Air 2008, as well as interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.
