Van Canto – Interview with Ross and Stefan @ Islington Academy, London

Van Canto

Interview with Ross Thompson and Stefan Schmidt

24th March 2016

Interview by Jacob Ovington

Van Canto are the only acapella metal band in the entire world. We don’t know of any others, anyway. In the beginning people laughed at their idea, but they kept on going. Having recorded six albums in ten years while steadily building up a fan-base, they’ve proved that thinking outside the box can pay off and that metal acapella is possible. We caught up with Ross and Stefan of the band before their London show to get an insight into one of the world’s most unique metal outfits.

All of their sound is produced by their voices, except the drums. Tonight they were headlining Islington Academy. Producing acapella metal in a studio is one thing, but the stamina it takes to manage a full headline set is another. Let’s see how they fare.
