Performer : Van Canto
Album : Hero, 2008
It is always attractive to just sing without the instrument, even for metal song. So does this idea come to the guys from Germany and they formed a now well known a Cappella - metal group called Van Canto. They cover famous tunes from heavy metal and Fear of the Dark is one of them. Beside the ta-ta-ta-ta voices, there also a drum and a guitar solos.
If you can stand the acappella party, this is enjoyable.
Styles: a Cappella power metal
Faithful to Original version: fair
Re-Arrangements: 5/5 - into acappella version (1=notes per notes, 5=extreme deviation)
Vocals: 5/5 - surely need to be first class singer
Rhythm guitar: -
Sound and Production: 4/5
