    You know when you're sitting at a stop light in your car, and a good song comes on the radio, and you start doing guitar noises with your mouth while drumming on the steering wheel? well, they took that concept farther than anyone ever imagined.


    BEST. THING. EVER.

    There's a lot of bands the use their mouths(you know what I mean) instead of instruments, and they're quite good at it.

    Van Canto has been my favorite band since they were introduced in 2006, I own all three of their albums.

    Rakkatakka motherf***ers!

    I tried to listen to them after I heard them cover Metallica's Battery, but just couldn't get into them.

    Their drummer, Bastian is talented as hell! Not only is he the drummer for Van Canto, but he is the lead singer and pianist for the new Metal band "In Legend"

    What do you get when you take the guitar out of a Metal band, and replace it with a Piano?
    In Legend on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads
    You get awesome, thats what!

    Oh, and he can't read Music either. His piano playing is just by ear.

    That was some pretty awful metal.


    Only Mike Patton can make noises and get away with it because he's a god.

    The acapella parts are impressive, but I'm not digging the vocals...uh, the lead vocals...er, the lyrics...:) 

    I'm questioning whether or not I would have been able to identify that had I not read the title beforehand...

    They have their Pandemonium EP up for free download! All they ask is, if you did really like it, and want more, to donate.

    Check out their site, In Legend – Piano Metal – Rock Music – Band: Pandemonium EP out In Legend – Piano Metal – Rock Music

    In other news... Amazon.ca finally gave me a ship date for "A Storm to Come". Van Canto's first album is the one I get last, when ordering all three at the same time... yeesh!
